Finished some mods on the FJC and put the factory wheels and 32" tires on the 4runner. Additionally, this 4runner has rear Old Man Emu springs/shocks. Just a quick shot for those without imagination.
They are 17x7.5 wheels with 4.5" backspacing.
Looks great!

Mine stock would handle and feel just like a Beamer, I know that is gonna corner sweat!
Very nice.
Did it make the trackwdth any narrower by cahcne?

Not sure how to answer that. I didn't take any measurements, but the FJC wheel combo still fits under the fenders. Many FJC owners upgrade their wheels/tires and you can find the OEMs on Ebay or Craigslist. The sticker price for these wheels was $580 and I just thought it would be a good way to update the 4runner. The original 4runner alloys are disgusting due to winter/salt corrosion. I will post some more pics tomorrow,
A lot of dealers have them sitting in the back of the parts depts, they are "take-offs" from new trucks, they put on 20" dubs or those poser beadlocks to dress up the FJ, makes em fly off the lot. The dealer I go to for parts always has a set sitting behind the counter for sale.
I have a set paid for, waiting shipment and I found a set of cheap used Jeep Rubicon takeoffs that are tall and narrow. So I am thinking of running them on my '89 Gen 2 (same as your 4 Runner) pickup... My only worry was that it made the truck track width narrower than it is stock, but looking at it with the 4.5 backspacing it should actually be OK I think... :)
