Who make a nice one piece/solid 16"steel wheel which I can have 33X10.5 BFG's A/Ts or M/Ts installed on?
Will I need to have them back spaced? What does that mean anyway?
Or will I need to stay with a 15" wheel because BFG might not make a 33X10.5 or 11.5X16?

i was about to recommend stockton wheels but they are now out of business, wtf?
the stock 70/60 series 16" wheels battlewagon mentioned are really nice, and is of very high quality.
I am running toyota splitrims, and i really like the look.


the tiresizes you mentioned only come in 15" configuration afaik.
Then you have the really nice 40 series rim that wyomingben is running

Actually 285/75/R16 is close to 33x11.5x16. It is a common size and you'll have a lot of tire choices compared to 33x10.5x15, which I believe you have only two and they're both BFG.

I really like the look of tall and narrow tires on these wagons. They grey wheels on the red wagon are toyota spilt rims? Where would be a good place to find those?

I run the stock Toyota Black Steelie wheels on all my cruiser with aluminum spacers. They are strong and you can find them for about $25.00 each on craigslist.

Wasabi from the mudsite just started the SOA this week hence the dropped rear driveshaft. The next picture wil show my drive shaft up.

Great pics, thanks. I really like the look of the larger wheels/tires on the Cruisers.
In about a week I'll be having my OME 2.5" HD springs rearched, 1 AAL installed in each corner, and the MAF 7" shackles installed. So a larger tire would look better as I'll be getting another 3" out of my springs.

I too like the look of a taller thinner tire. Can I get that look on a 16" wheel? And do I need back spacing? Can some one explain to me what back spacing is? I think it has to do with centering the wheel in the wheel well. Or would I only need this if I ran 35s. I only swaping out my 32s for 33s and no bigger.

Chitown40: I don't mind BFG as they are what I've been running BFG A/Ts since 2004. Not sure that if I stay with BFG I'll run A/T or M/T. Speaking of M/T. How much louder are they andmuch do they effect Gas Mileage?

Hidesert: When you stated stock wheels. Where they OME 16" or 15" in depicted on that red cruiser?

HDs, AAL and that big shackle might produce a nasty shackle angle and rough ride. 33's should fit without the shackle, I'd throw the new meats on first then decide if you need a taller shackle.

stock is 3.75", so don't buy a rim with more.

Here is what mine currently looks like:
I've got some sag as you can see as I'm running a heavy 4x4 labs rear bumper with dual swing arms, the INTI rack and I've sprayed the roof with Durabak. Oh, I forgot to mention the SROR sliders.

That's a lot of weight.

BW, I want the extra ride hight with out installing the SO. I don't think I'll mind the rougher ride, but then again maybe I will. I already purchased the AAL and the shackles which I can always remove if I don't like the out come.

I do appr your input as that's what mud is all about. Thank you

15 inchers, but an option...FJ40 Toyota OEM steel wheels with Hubcaps. The first pic is the OEM 15x5.5. The second pic is the same wheel widened to 15x8. The tires are the same in each pic. BFG AT 33x10.50x15.

Good luck.

Thanks for your service.

Britklr: I like it, but I think I'd like black instead. Would you happen to know where I could get such a wheel?
Is that the "camping Lab" roof rack?
I almost bought one however I really liked the ability to raise and lower my side rails and carry 7 fuel cans across the front. Very nice rig......

The OEM wheels come in a black primer and available from your friendly local Toyota parts guy.

The RR is homemade. I built it for the RRT and awning. The awning attaches via small receiver hitches so that it can be easily removed. I also built it without side rail so that it would still fit in my garage without the RRT on it.

Good luck!

awww, I really wish that there were still shops that would widen steel wheels for a reasonable
price- I have a lot of love for that look...
