    265/75 R16 BFG KO2's on 4Runner wheels. Really considering changing to the FN Gunmetal 16" x 8" TRD Pro style wheels.

    I am looking for a set of these OEM rims for my 1995 Tacoma. Please let me know if you want to sell them.

    Thanks for the interest and I'll keep you in mind should I change my mind. However, for now I've decided to keep the wheels, but will be selling the tires soon. They are BFG KO2s 265/75 R16 purchased in April of 2020, have about 20K miles, and a lot of good tread and life remaining.

    Best.

    Any suggestions on finding a set of OEM rims like these? My 95 Tacoma is all stock. Thanks

    First of all, I assume you have 6 lug wheels and not 5 lug. If you want to stay stock and 15" OD wheels, I bought these new ones for my '89 pick-up in Feb. of 2020 off of E-bay. I have no idea what the cost or availability is today. Of course, these show-up on Craigslist quite often, but most have poor finish and are in rough condition due to age and use. If you want to go up one size to 16" 4Runner wheels, I think the price is a little more than the 15" wheels for new ones - I'll see if I can find where I bought mine. Best.

    I was in a hurry to get new wheels and didn't get nearly as good of a deal as for the 15" wheels, but here is what I ordered back in Feb., 2020 from Auto Rim Shop. I expect you might find a better deal if you shop around a little. If you like the black-out look, a cheap option is to buy a used set and paint (plasti-dip) them black.

    Yes you are correct, I just checked and they are 6 lug wheels. I've had this truck forever, it has just turned over 100k miles and the tires are dry rotted. I am trying to find a set of OEM Toyota rims to go back on it and buy some new tires for it. I appreciate your assistance!

    Happy to help. I've messed around with Toyota wheels on my '89 pick-up, '02 4Runners, and '98 Tacoma more than I care to think about. Of course, there are a lot of other OEM wheels that will fit your truck and many, many aftermarket options. It helped me a lot to search this site and the internet for pics of various wheels on the same truck as mine - it really helped me decide which wheels I liked the most. I missed that you have a '95 model, so the OEM wheels could be steel, these below, or maybe others - Toyota had a lot of wheel options. I had these on my '89 before swapping to the newer OEM Taco wheels. BTW, if you are just now turning 100K miles on a '95, then that is great! Pics!

    Mine originally came with the steel wheels. I replaced them years ago when I purchased the larger tires but now I want to try to find the oem alloy 3 spoke rim.

    Very nice! I like the 4Runner in this pic. this too...I once had a red '07 limited. If you don't mind used wheels, I would keep a watch on C.L. or check the junk yards (car-parts.com) and maybe E-bay. I would recommend facebook marketplace, but I don't do this site and I've not had any experience other than what my friends have told me. Here's my '89 with 15" OEM, 3 spokes just so you have an idea about how they look. I couldn't find any stock ones, so had to cut-out rear caps and repaint to fit the front center caps and clear the locking hubs, but I think it looks OK. I have stock front shocks and only air bags in the rear to raise it a bit (and for towing) as the leaf springs on these trucks tend to sag over time. I think the tires are 1 size up over stock but I can confirm if needed:

    Many Thanks. Bought her new in 1989. I've done a second "non-professional" restoration after my son had her in high school and then at the Citadel for several years (kids are tough on vehicles!).

    Are these chrome rims desirable to some 1st gen owners?

    Thanks. That set-up “was” 15x7 American Outlaw II’s with BFGoodrich KO2’s 33x12.5x15.

    Truck now rolls on Toyota TRD bead lock wheels in bronze with Goodyear Duratracs 165/75r16’s. (White letters out, of coarse)
