Hello everybody,
I am glad to be here.

Thanx for replaying. I live in Saudi Arabia.
I am trying to buy the wheels from USA. 6x5.5 what everybody told me, but i tried to install a 2009 Fj cruiser wheel 6 lugs but i did not work, my patter is smaller in diameter.

Mine is 6 lugs.

The wheels from 2009 cruiser won't fit without spacers. The backspacing is too much.

Ok you have 6 lug. You can measure from the direct center of 1 lug to the direct center of the 3rd lug ( skip one lug) and it will give you your measurement

Correction. Measure from the center of one lug to the center of the one directly opposite of it. Ie 12 oclock and 6 o'clock for a 6 lug pattern (I'm used to 5 lugs)

Thanx i did.
It was 6x5.5 Would that be it or there are some other considerations?

No problem. It's weird that the bolt pattern did not fit from the 2009j though. You need spacers but the bolts should have lined up. What size tire do you want to put on?

Probably all terrain, i want to use it on and off road. I can get an advice for that too.

Glad the advice for the pattern worked. The back spacing on rims can make a huge problem given the size of tire you choose. Mud tires are great for snow and mud ( self cleaning ) but sand you can use All terrains. They will also wear better than a more aggressive tread. As for more power i would suggest aftermarket turbo. Seems the norm for diesel owners
