    I am new to this site and haven't seen this posted, so here goes. I have a 08 dbl cab 4x4 w/16" factory steel wheels. I have been shopping around for some wheels & tires for about 2 wks. I am thinking about going with a factory toyota wheel but I am still undecided. I really like some of the fj wheels but I think there may be a problem with rubbing. I don't want to put a lift on just yet. I was wondering if anyone was running these wheels and if they had any problems? My truck is silver with the black fender flares and I would like to see other pics of upgraded models like this.

    ben, those wheels also come on the Rugged Trail O/R Tacos.

    I am pretty sure they call that wheel that Mike has on his truck the "baja".

    Ah, thanks Brian. I recall someone posting about his "FJ" wheels at one time.

    I have them but havnt put them on my truck. The rubbing depends on the size of the tire, not the wheel

    I thought that the offset was different on the fj's and it would require a spacer.

    I have FJ wheels on my truck and there is no rubbing at all. Tire size is 265/70/17. I think the offset was 1/4" less than the stock steelies I had so these wheels are slightly farther away from the brakes, uca's etc.

    I am running 17" FJ alloy wheels with 265/70/17 Bridgestone Duelers I haven't had any rubbing issues. Also running stock suspension (2002 4X4, Double Cab, TRD) They are an inch larger diameter than the stock size (265/70/16) so the speedo will read about 2-3 MPH slower than actual speed.

    I've got the anthracite FJs. They're 16x7.5 with 4.5 BS with 285s mounted. No spacers required.

    Hope this helps.

    The FJ wheels come in 16" & 17", so be careful what you buy.

    The 16" are a 5-spoke, and the 17" are 6-spoke.

    I just put a set of 17" 6-spoke FJ wheels on my 08 Sport 4 x 4 DC with the OEM 165/70R17 tires. They fit prefectly. No rubbing. With the whells turned all the way there is about 3/4" clearance between the tire and the inner fender skirt.

    OK, I stand corrected. Maybe we are talking about 2 different styles of the 6-spoke.
