    Hello all,

    Longtime reader, first time poster. I haven't seen all these questions addressed throughout the forum, so I thought I'd try a post here.

    I've never been one for mods of any sort onto any car I've owned, but would like to work on a couple things with my Taco. I've been looking to put some of the matte black TRD wheels onto my 2017 TRD Sport. I know the Sport is the odd duck of the packages with 17" wheels instead of 16" which means I would technically need the 4Runner's 17" TRD wheels (PTR2035110BK). However, it looks like these also fit P265/70R17 tires, whereas the stock on the Sport is P265/65R17. I'm 99% sure I can just swap my 65s over to the TRD wheels, as the 70s would only give off a beefier look, slightly decrease some MPGs, and throw the speedometer a little. Am I right on the wheels and tires?

    Secondly, if I were to swap to the standard 16" TRD wheels (or another brand's 16"), that would also throw the speedometer off a little and I would definitely need new tires as well, correct? Would there be more issues with space in the

    Any other general tips or tricks for wheels are definitely welcome!

    Sorry for all the n00b questions, like I said I've never changed out anything from stock before on any car or truck I've had in the past.

    Yes.

    It's when you get into aftermarket wheels that the problems blossom, due to fitment specs being different.

    I would use the Pro wheels, transfer your OE tires (assuming you are satisfied with them) then maybe consider an alternate size when they are worn out. With those wheels you can run a 255 80 17 for a full 33" with no lift, rubbing or cutting. Not suggesting you do that, just pointing out that you give yourself flexibility of choice.

    As far as diameter changes and their impacts, the tire calculator is a useful tool.

    The 17 inch 4 runner pro's 17's with 265/70/17 will fit fine and the 16 inch tacoma trd pro wheels are gloss black not matte. Speedo change will be negligible at best according to all the damn radar speed signs we have on our roads vs my speedo.

    Yes, you can swap your current tires directly onto the 17" TRD wheels, or you can jump up to 265/70R17 tires if you prefer. You are correct on the beefier look, the drop in MPG, and the slight (3%) change in the speedometer.

    You could certainly swap in the 16" TRD wheels, but you would need new tires. 265/70R16 will be the same size as what you have now so no effect on the speedometer, or 265/75R16 for the beefier look, etc.

    265/70 or 265/65 will be fine. The speedo is 1 mph faster.

    I did the direct swap from my stock wheels to the sema wheels with the same tires. No issues in terms of throwing off the speedo or anything. When you go beefier tires though, that’s when things will change slightly

    Check your speedo again your phones gps as mine was off a little with my stock 265/65/17 sport wheels. Got new trd pro Sema wheels and tires. I . running a 265/70/17 SL rated Toyo open country at2 and the speedo is now perfect against the GPS. Now gas mileage is the same since I'm running a light tire and lighter wheel. My mpg stayed the same. Plus the 17 inch offers a lot more tire choices.

    Thanks everyone! Definitely some great info and I'll be putting in an order for the TRD 17" wheels some time this weekend.

    Follow up, where can you find some reasonably priced black lugs to match the matte black wheels?
