    These look both like oem wheel sets. I'm assuming if you have oem lug nuts that both of you should be fine.

    Oh okay. I wasn't sure if the oem steel wheels used aftermarket lugs. Now that I think about it, my oem tundra silver steel wheels use aftermarket lugs.

    First post here on TW...so many good ideas and insights here! Anyways, picked up a set of 4Runner SR5 wheels awhile back with brand new tires. I got a heckuva deal on them. My intention is to powder coat them black, but they don’t look too bad as is.

    You could plasti-dip them, then if you decide to go back to the silver, just peel it off, just a thought. Nice ride by the way.

    Thanks, I appreciate it. I’ve thought about the plasti-dip route, and I might dip my wheels this spring or summer when it warms up (just to see what they look like).

    They honestly look great on the truck. They give a cleaner, more modern look to it versus the oem sport wheels.

    My only issue with a lot of the oem wheels is most of them have a very high offset. Some of them would look SO good with a lower offset. This would avoid having to use wheel spacers.

    in my opinion, a perfect setup are these 3rd gen Offroad wheels with the blackout vinyls and a slight wheel spacer to make them flush. They look absolutely perfect like that.

    Either way, they make amazing on your truck versus the original wheels.

    I like ‘em! Ask on the photoshop thread and see what they look like black, I had mine photoshopped bronze.

    Thanks y’all, I appreciate it.

    DLillest, I definitely agree in that they look better than the OEM sport wheels, I wasn’t a fan of those.

    Adam, I like the look of the wheels on yours as well. If I could change the color of my truck, it would be to the color of yours. I might have to give the photoshop thread a try, too. Definitely a lot less physical work :D

    Hope someone hasn't asked already, but where is the cheapest place to go to get the 2nd gen to 3rd gen swap done? I called a couple places and they want $25 a tire due to me wanting to move the TPMSensor from my 2nd gen rims to the new 3rd gen rims - and both sets of rims already have tires mounted on them. So it's a complete removal of tires for both sets. Any help?

    Long time lurker, first time poster. 3rd gen dark satin alloy 16x7 25mm offset wheels wrapped in 265/75 Falken Wildpeak A/T3W. 2014 silver sky metallic DCSB. I spent the longest time trying to find pics of these wheels on my color taco and finally decided to go for it when I saw a set of take offs on Craigslist. I dig it. No rub just sitting here, maybe at full turn backing up hill on the little front flaps. Stock height.

    Me thinks 3rd gen wheels are some of the best looking wheels out there. Looks great on your ride!

    I just took it on a trip to the in-laws’ over the weekend. Tried driving on a few inclines, backing uphill, and took it on some dirt levy roads trying to get the suspension to load in as many ways as I could. I can’t get it to rub! I’m sure if I really got in to some aggressive angles the little front flaps would rub. I had taken off the long factory mud flaps for the front wheels prior to install.
