    I am torn between the teflon coated Mojave and the Anthracite FJ Wheels. Help me decide. I am figuring that the teflon Mojave will clean the New Jersey winter salt off very easily. How will the Antracite FJ wheels hold up during a New Jersey winter?

    My vote goes for the Mojave's obviously. I can tell first hand they are very easy to keep clean, very durable and they look good!

    No spacers needed with the FJ wheels. So I have heard. I'll be putting mine on soon.

    Mite want to think about the aftermarket wheels, if they use the acorn lug nuts, they are a pain in the ass to balance, had to take mine back three times now for a shake/shimmy over 65-70 mph. Cant go wrong with OEM. I vote TRDs

    My buddy has the mojave's on his fj trails team and there sick...he sold his fj wheels(very expensive for nothing). Plus you can get them in an 8 wide rather than 7.5. and yes the fj wheels will fit
