    B you got the weights for these wheels? Any chance they're lighter than the stock 17" TRD's?

    Hi David,

    Your wheels were shipped out yesterday. The BFD wheels weigh 22lbs and 6oz. They're are lighter by 5-7lbs.

    Have a nice weekend!

    Sweet thanks. 5-7lbs of unsprung weight is good stuff. Mahalo!

    Thank you too! And I agree, 5-7lbs translates to noticeable acceleration improvement. Gas mileage should be better too, but I cannot say by how much.

    Got my new Bronze BFD's within 3 working days of payment.....Awesome service, feedback, shipping.

    These wheels are light! I'm so glad not everything I'm changing on my Taco weighs more than stock. Thanks D&B!

    Wow, I didn't expect them to get to Hawaii so quickly! You are welcome, and thank you too!!! I think you will feel a noticeable difference with the lighter wheels. Please post some photos of your truck when you can!

    Mahalo's flat. Yeah I'm real pleased with the outcome....the tires really tie it all together just right for me. Can't wait to see our trucks side by side.

    Im begging to think we have the same taste. Iwas looking at your build and I have the same Trd emblem but mine are the socmonkey bed decals. I also carbon fiber wrapped my interior. Then of course the awesome BFD shoes from FN Wheels. I'll get with you one of these days so we take some side by sides for this thread.

    Great minds.....

    Funny you should mention the decals. Got bored tonight and pulled mine off. Felt like the new wheels and tires called enough attention to the truck already, so I scrubbed the decals. Looks cleaner, but I have asked Sock for pricing on his Hawaii edition bedsides. We'll see. Definitely down for a tandem photoshoot. I'll get the 20D cleaned up.:cool:

    I agree!

    As for the 17's, the closest I have right now is the Countersteer Type X from Konig. It is very unlikely that this style (FN Wheels BFD) will be available in 17", but I know if they get enough demand they will make it.

    The demand would have to be very high though in order to cover the costs to do the R&D necessary to make a totally new size, especially for a counter pressure cast wheel such as the BFD.
