    I found a spare rim for my 4wd '95 that appears very similar to the wheels that came original, but does not have the embossing found on the others ( T 15X7 JJ ). Do all OEMs have the embossing, and copies do not, or could the spare be a 2wd rim?

    All Toyota wheels should have the wheel specs stamped into them somewhere. Is it possible that it's a later edition of the wheel and the stamping is just in a different place?

    I've checked the wheel and found only Misc DOT specs and casting numbers. What I'm wondering is if it is a genuine Toyota wheel. All my other wheels have 'Toyota' on them. Replica wheels can't have someone elses brand name on them, so I am thinking this may be one of those. Unless Toyota was putting unbranded wheels on their products, which seems unlikely, maybe it's a replica. I believe it came off a 1999 Tacoma.

    Yeah certainly sounds like a replica to me
