    Currently have billies @ 2.5'' and 1.5 AAL on the taco. Planning on getting some BFG ATs (265/75/16 - 265/70/17) sometime in the next few weeks. I like both OR and FJ wheels but still not sure if I want to save a few bucks or have a more updated look. Opinions, photos and votes will be appreciated.

    i think the FJ wheels are good, but too clean for the offroad.

    too much like the sport

    I lean the other way, I think the FJ wheels look just different enough to catch someone's eye on a Tacoma. That'd be my choice.

    I like the FJ wheels as well...similar to what's on the TRD Sport I have?? From what I've heard from most off-roaders you'll have better off-road capable tire selection with the 16's vs the 17's...good luck--

    Are the FJ wheels direct bolt on for the 05+ Tacoma or do you need a spacer?
    If so, what size spacer?

    Of course Red is always a good color to view

    It still looks factory, but different than everyone else's

    I'm in this same boat, I have a set of FJ wheels but dont know if I want to use them yet. I'm waiting for my tires to wear out before I make my decision

    To the guys running the FJ wheels, those are 17" right? I was considering buying a set to replace my 16" steelies on my 2011 DC but wasnt sure if they would bolt right on with no problems....

    Thanks for the posted photos. Those are some good looking tacos. Either route, the taco still looks good imo.

    I've got a new '11 DC long bed, waiting to upgrade the wheels as well. Not a fan of either of the FJ or original TRD wheels, too basic. Wish more wheels were offered in pyrite mica :(
