    I went to my local dealer hoping they wouldn't require a vin for the fj cruiser rims, no dice. Guy did show me some TRD rims they had to buy back due to allegedly scratching while working on another vehicle. Was told these rims have been setting for 2 months now... He's getting with parts manager to give me a price in the morning.. what kind of price should i expect to get for these?

    Are those tundra wheels? They are 5 lug, is your truck 5 or 6 lug?

    6 lug, pic is for reference only. not actual photo(only one i could find on the web to use). rims at dealer are 6 lugs. not sure if they were from a tundra or not, parts guy didn't specify. only they had to buy back from disgruntled customer...

    yes those! $350 a piece?! WTF! They were nice, but not $350 a rim nice, guess i'll find out what a "deal" they offer in the AM.. not even sure what they'd look like on a black truck. probably just gonna order what i originally wanted and be happy.

    I think they would look awesome on black. Because they are scratched you might be able to get a good deal. I would snatch those up for like $800 but i doubt a stealership would let them go for that cheap.

    Those are rock warrior trd wheels. They were originally manufactured in 5 lug only for the tundra. They now make a 6 lug. They are a pricey wheel. Light and strong. There is something special about the way they are cast, but i am not an expert so couldnt say why exactly.

    well after laughing for a good minute, i declined on these rims. Sorry but $1200 is not a heck of deal to me... throw some tires in with that price and maybe. Definitely right about "stealerships"
