    Just go off the phone with Toyota and they can order steelies for
    me for $80 ea. plus shipping. That seems pretty steep to me for
    steel wheels. Does anyone know if you can get a 6 lug Chevy wheel
    that 16" with a 2.5 or 3.5 backspace? dont remember which one it
    is that will work on a 60?

    Do you happen to have the model or better yet the part number? I am not seeing any with the right backspacing.

    Thanks.

    My guess is that they come in black, white or chrome.

    Maybe get white and then paint them?

    They must have cutoms backspaced the wheel for you?

    Go to:http://www.uniquewheel.com/

    All the 7760 are 16x7 with 4" BS, however can be ordered with 3" BS.

    21-7760 = white
    27-7760 = black

    Forget the others.

    The Toyota Silver 42601-60262-03 are 16x6, 3.75" BS, so are 1/4" inboard from the stock 3.5" setting. They work well, and are heavy duty.

    Thats what ENS quoted me for them also. I was just hoping to find them
    cheaper. Looks like i wont though. So thats why i was just looking for a
    chevy rim here in the US that looks like to rims in my avatar but not
    split though. I will keep up the search and now i know a 3.5" to 3.75" back
    space will work that helps me also. I know chevy must make a rim close
    to this i just need to find it....

    USW-70-7860-SPEC 16 x 8 Custom, 6x5.5 bolt pattern, 2.5" backspacing-reverse.

    $61.39ea

    They had to turn the center around and reweld it. They sent them bare metal covered with machine oil. I cleaned them off with several cans of brakleen and coated them with professional grade black gloss rustoleum. No frills, functional. Works for me. My turning circle has tightened considerably. I removed the mud flap brackets 'cause they rubbed on a tight turn. Flaps were mostly gone anyway. I went from a "31 all terrain tire to 33" x 12.50" (aka Goodyear Wrangler M + S LT305/70R16) tire.

    Upgrade to fj 60 wheels

    can anyone shed light on upgrading from stock wheels for my FJ60? I'm a novice and need education on the basics. What backspacing works best and why? what's the largest rim size you would recommend without body modifications etc.

    The part number I mentioned is ok to quote at your normal toyota dealer, I did not use ens.

    The cheby rims may work, but most of the trucks they used a 6 x 5.5 had 4 to 4.5 backspacing, but I could be wrong. SO spacer would be needed. And I thought the chevy rims needed the centre hole enlarged to fit over our hub/flange....again could be wrong.



    I woulc not go bigger than a 16x8. In width I mean. Otherwise for a 60 series you are picking rubber in the 12 inch range. which get into clearance issues. The 10 inch width seems to work better. But they you want a 16x7 rim. The yota rim is a 16x6 rim, so 9 inch range width works better. Gives better hold on bead, not too flat of profile.

    With my 16x6 rims, I run 235/85/R16 tires. Great size for a 60 series IMOP. Some offroad clearance, but still decent onroad, no regearing. Also looks like it was meant for a 60 especially with a 2.5 lift kit.

    All my work vehicles run this size of tire, on suburbans, ford vans, crewcabs etc. It looks right for them. My F250 I owned(offroad pkg) came stock with that size.

    What tire makers make a 235/85R16? I was thinking of going with 255/85R16 BFGs at some point, but 235/85s sound interesting as well.

    Tire source

    Tire Rack (tirerack.com) has several selections in this size depending on what type of tire you want.

    Yes it do want a 16x6 Toyota rim and i would really like the rims that
    you have on your BJ60. I would also like to find them used in that
    style and size if at all possible. Are there any junkyards up your way
    who might have them. Reason being is i want to powder coat them
    white and dont want to do that to brand new rims, but alas i might
    not have any other choice. Let me know your thoughts. There used
    to be a junkyard called Interior used parts in kelowna B.C. i think do
    you know if they are still there or have a number for them to call?
    if not no big

    thx

    -JimK

    I doubt you can find them in a wreaker. No NA models came in that size that I know of. They are non-usa. But they are not split rims. I was thinking of doing the split thing...but. I found out, nobody will mount them, or balance, they need tubes, and they are 150 a piece new. There is danger involved in mounting yourself, but doable. But I do not want to deal with tubes and unbalanced tires.

    235/85R16 is a very common tire size for trucks. Many commercial grade tires in that size. Load E tires, heavy sidewalls, 10 ply. Not the soft melt on gravel mall tires that many 4x4's have. Ones with flames on the sidewalls :rolleyes:

    Oh the 255/85 is basically a 33 inch tire. The 235/85 is almost a 33(32.7) So they are not tiny.
