    Hey guys. What do you think about these:

    http://www.offroadunlimited.com/ProductCart/PC/viewCategories.asp?idCategory=1531

    I am thinking about either the 51's or 97's.

    What i am thinking about doing is putting some BF or Pro-Comp mud terrains on them and using them for camping trips/trails, and for going up to the mountains this winter for skiing.

    What size do yall think- if you think I should get them. I want some mud tires but only for special occasions.

    I am planning on putting some BF All Terrains for daily use on my TRD Offroad wheels.

    There may be a 2-3 inch lift coming soon- but i need to do some searching to make sure what setup will be best for me since I just want a slight lift for slightly bigger tires.

    The FJCruiser 17 x 7.5 black steelies can be had for a very good price, and look both basic but sharp, but of course the tires will prob cost more.

    What size? I was thinking just going with the 15 inch, but want some that will look decent. 7, 8, or 10 inch in width? I dont want them to stick out from the fenders like im ready for the Baja. But i think it would be nice for the wheels to fill the fender area a lil.

    15s won't work on a gen 2 six lug truck because of the size of the brake rotors and calipers. You have to go atleast 16. As for width, I am not that much of a lift and tire guy so I'll leave that to the other members to answer for you.

    I really like both of those rims. I dont know if i like one more than the other. Idont think i could choose unless i saw them side by side on an actual truck.

    Which FJ black steelies are you tallking about? the ones that look like spare tire rims? you have any pics?

    No pics, but you can go to www.fjcruiserforums.com, plenty of pics on there. Tire rack and others sell a look alike (or OE) version the 16 x 7.0 rim used as spares on the Tundra for not much money. Looks just like the 17 x 17.5 of of the FJCruiser, but tire availability might be easier.
