    Are these the real deal from Yuba Toyota or are they knock offs? I'm assuming read deal but what worries me is the comment about conflicting with the "TRD Big Brake"

    TRD FJ WHEELS

    I have a 2011 DCSB TRD Off Road I'd like to get a set of these for.

    I would call and discuss the wheels with them or shoot them an email. Even if you call you may want to follow it up in writing so you have a written record of the conversation if he says they are legit...you purchase them and they're knock-offs. It won't totally protect you but at least you have something in writing from them stating they are real if you want to fight them. The FJ knock-offs are showing up more and more on eBay...some ads say they are and some don't. Let us know how it works out.

    Cant hurt to ask the seller.

    I am guessing, but I think its only 20 lugs because you still need 4 locking lugs

    Added extra awesomeness to its original awesomeness.
    You wouldn't think a Toyota dealer would be selling knock-offs.

    A picture of the part number on the wheel is the only way to truly tell.

    mine came from the dealer with 24. Might just be a typo if the poster thinks they are a 5 lug wheel. A receptionist probably posted the item.

    Thanks everyone. I will try to call Monday since they aren't open on the weekends. I should have bought the ones Franks had the other day but I am still not 100% sure I want black wheels or not. I am starting a poll. haha
