    Hey Dustin,

    Just wondering if you got my last message regarding a quote to ship to Canada. Let me know, thanks!

    Hey Dustin,

    Have you planned to try to make the wheels in a different offset or width ?

    Hi Kemp,

    Yes, I just sent you a response with a quote. :)


    The main request that I'm getting right now is coming from older Landcruiser guys for a little narrower wheel. I haven't had too many requests for any other widths or offsets, but we did get a couple for a wider wheel with lower offset.

    Yea.... maybe a 9.5 or 10? And maybe a 3.75 to 4.5 backspacing.

    Would this be for your FJ Cruiser, or for another vehicle?

    I was thinking about it. On the FJ I am running the 18*9 ET0 with a 1.5" spacer. I know my setup would work out to be 18*9 et-36 or something like that. I just feel that a 295 needs more width.

    9" width is actually pretty darn good for a 295/65R18 or 295/70R18.

    The problem with going wider (say a 9.5" or 10" wide wheel) is that it can be difficult to keep the bead of the tire seated if you go offroad and air down the tires. I know for you specifically in Florida this isn't too big of an issue, because there isn't a lot of rock crawling down there. For some of our customers that like to crawl and need to air down it might present a problem if we were to make the wheels wider.

    295/65R18 has an approved rim width range of 8.0" to 10.0", and 295/70R18 has an approved rim width of 7.5" to 10.0". We're pretty much safely in the middle with 9" on the BFDs, so you don't have anything to worry about with your 295's.

    I personally think your FJ looks pretty badass the way you have it setup. :)

    Don't worry......I know that for an low pressure case, narrow is better and with a 9" wheel I am fine up to I think almost a 325. I was just asking about maybe wider or more offset possible in the future. For me the lowest I bring the tires down to is about 26psi and about 55psi on the highway.

    Hey Dustin,

    I am really impressed with the ride. It is a little stiffer than stock, but not overly harsh. I'll get you those pictures next weekend, there's a truck cruise and I gotta get the truck detailed.

    Randy,

    are you running spacers on the wheels? I thought with Maxtrac spindles the max backspace was 4.5" and these wheels wouldnt fit.

    hows the clearance looking?

    Do the tires stick out past the fenders too?

    I want a set, Not sure they'll fit my truck though. My truck is completely stock, it came with 18"x7 1/2 wheels, with 265/60/18 tires. Can I put those tires on the 18x9 wheels, without the wheels sticking out past the wheel well? If so,Not sure if I want gun metal or black, what do you think?

    BFDs with OEM Dueller 265/60-18... looks good enough to use up the first set of tires and THEN switch.

    I really wanted a spindle lift and the BFDs, so I searched the threads for anyone that did the same setup. The op used these wheels with camburg spindles (see posts #46 & #50 in this thread.). And I found TacoDaddy's build where he used maxtrac spindles with BFDs.

    I contacted Dustin to see what he thought about my desired lift setup and these wheels, and he didn't think I would have any problems based on his build and a customer's similar setup. So I pulled the trigger on this setup.

    There is no rubbing at all and I didn't need to trim anything. Before I lifted the truck I removed the front mud flaps and that small piece (looks like a mini mud flap) in front of the front tires, so I am not sure if the tires would have rubbed on those.

    The spindles push the fronts out about 1-1/4", so I'm running Spidertrax spacers on the rear only. Now all the wheels are sticking 1-1/4" past the fender flares.

    They'll definitely fit, and you won't have any rubbing at all. The wheels will poke out just a little bit while looking down the side of the truck from the front. It's a nice stance.

    I have mounted this exact setup for a few local customers. :)

    My color suggestion would be graphite gunmetal. I think it looks awesome with the silver. Matte black doesn't look bad either, but I am very partial to graphite gunmetal BFDs.

    Excellent photo for confirmation! Thank you, and I agree! :) Not a bad way to put those OEM Bridgestones to good use. :thumbsup:

    Thank you very much for posting your experience. It's very helpful to anyone else thinking about this setup. :)

    We do have the Camburg spindles on our truck, and we did have the BFDs (18x9" / 0mm offset / 5" backspacing) on there for a while with 285/65R18 tires. No spacers, and it did not rub on the suspension at all. I've since switched it out to FN Five Stars with 35" tires. ;)
