    :rolleyes: Hello to all. I just ordered an original set of 5 black 16 inch Trail Teams TRD wheels? I paid $1522.00 shipping included. The wheels are new in the box with lugnuts and center caps. Was this a good deal? Any issues I should know about before I have them mounted? Anyone got pictures of a silver 09 with them on? Thanks guys, you all rock!

    do YOU think its a good deal?

    if you want them and were obviously willing to pay $1500 for them then they must be a pretty good deal

    Some people have probably paid less and some people have possibly paid more...in the end it comes down to if YOU are happy with the price you paid for said product

    they were talking about group buys (with no real discount actually) for these on MUD the other day and were talking about prices more like 140 + 15 shipping per wheel.



    actually... it was on FJForums but were talking about it on MUD

    I hate to tell you but that's way high. I know around the first of this year Toyota offered the FJ wheels in silver and the black trail for $150.00 retail each. I got a set of silver for my truck and paid just over cost at $115.00 each ..

    600 shipped for mine for 4, but they are much harder to find now. Looking at what they are selling for on Ebay I'd say you are in the ballpark maybe a little bit high.

    Does it really matter though if that is what you wanted and are happy with it?
