    I want to run either one with 265/75/16 BFG AT. Will there be any trouble with either of them on a Sport model. Tey are both 16 inch wheels​

    I only see the TRD wheel.

    Edit: I see both on my phone. Both will work. I don't like the TRD wheels though and bronze only looks good on certain colors.

    Sorry I've never posted pics up before. The first is the Bronze TRD wheel. The second is the Konig Countersteer. Both of them are in bronze. My truck is Silver. I'm just kinda tired of all the black wheels even though they look bad ass. I want to try something different. Does anyone have any other suggestions on bronze wheels I am more than willing to listen.

    I really like the look of the bronze countersteer. In fact, I just ordered them for my Sandstorm FJ Cruiser. Don't care much for the fake beadlock TRD. You may also want to take a look at the Level 8 Guardian in bronze which is similar to the TRD. I like the wheel but not the center caps.

    Personally I like the TRD rims. I love bronze rims on black trucks and the TRD one has always caught my eye. I have seen the countersteer on a black truck and it looked pretty damn good as well. Good luck deciding!

    3hanks for the input on the level 8 wheels. They are nearly identical and $100 less per wheel. 2 questions, wil the 16 inch fit on my Sport and is the backspacing the -6 or 18

    Suggest you contact Discount Tire. They are selling the Level 8 Guardian and I am sure they can help you. I really don't know the answer to those questions. I just crossed over from the FJ Cruiser Forum.

    This is a 8.5 inch wheel. According to the BFG website the AT is recommended for a 7-8 inch wheel. Would going to a 275/70/16 tire fit or will a 265/75/16 fit on a 8.5 inch wheel

    My (unsolicited) opinion is that bronze wheels only really look good on red, and sometimes black trucks.

    That being said, I'd go w/ the non-TRD wheels. Post pics once they're on, too. I might be turned on my "red/black only" opinion.
