    Option 1:
    Factory 17's with 265/75/17 BFG A/T KO
    Price: $1580 cdn

    Option 2:
    16" FJ TRD Rims with 265/75/16 BFG A/T KO
    Price: 2650

    Both prices include 5 tires or tires/rims as I would be changing tire sizes.

    For consideration: dealership sale; parts manager willing to take factory rims and tires on trade. Up to 80 for the rubber and up to 100 for the rims, each. Also Canadian dollars.

    I'm posting this from my iPhone so no poll til I get home later.

    Are you lifted ?

    Pretty sure you'll rub with option 1 unless you're lifted or trim the flashing.

    man canadian prices suck!!!!

    $2600 for 16's and tires, even up here I have been quoted $1300 for bfg AT's in that size so they want $1300 for those rims?

    Edit I just realized its for 5 tires... but still

    I run 265/70/16 A/T KOs on the stock TRD offroad rims. They work very well.

    Well remember thats for a set of 5, and it actually works out at about 1500 for the rubber and 1100 for the rims. Still robbery I know. Still a way better price that the tire shops in town, looking at 1700+ just for the tires.
