    I didn't find any threads on this so I am hoping what I was told was just hot air, but a guy at a lift shop was telling me I wouldn't be able to go to the TRD 16"(FJ) rims for my 09 Sport because the rotor was already 16 inches and too big of a brake system since it comes with the 17" rim standard..

    I know I have seen 16" FJ rims on Sport Tacos before...... right?
    I'm good.... right??? :confused:

    Thanks in advance!

    He is full of it. I have The TRD FJ rims on my 08 sport and I have no issues.
