I was super happy to see that @SCSPerformance made these in 5x150 as the market was lacking in wheels options I liked for 100s. I could only find a few pictures on the forum, so I thought I'd add these if that would help anyone.



I wanted to stay with 16s or 17s for bigger sidewall, so it came down to these or Hutchinsons - but I'm not ready for 40+ lb wheels yet. F5 weighs ~19-20 lbs.

There is no possibility of running center caps. This is the matte jet black finish, love it.



4.90" BS / +10mm offset - you can see the poke in the pictures. I prefer offset over spacers when or if I move up to 35s.





I know some people will prefer OEM over these cast aluminum wheels for strength, but I've been using these for several years from Moab to the Mojave with 0 problems on my Tacoma. Aired down to ~10 psi and never lost a bead (not gonna go that low in the 100 though)

Those look great!

I may end up with a set next year on my LC.

That's a great color in an LX as well. Good call there.

Can't wait to see your build thread. I loved your 4-cyl AC Taco.

off to a great start and have managed to changed my mind on that color combo as well. Any plans for the hubs/center caps?

I think this thread just sealed the deal for me getting the F5s on my LX. My only concern is that I'm running 255/85r16 tires which fit nicely on the stock rims but I'm concerned how they would fit on the 8" SCSs. Tire specs say they can go on anything from a 6" to an 8" but I don't know if a wider rim would make staying on the bead difficult when aired down.

Only plans right now are to maybe paint the hubs black. We'll see.

what size are those tires?

Looks great, I've got the same color LX.
285/75r16. It's a cool color scheme, don't see em much. One of the reasons I wanted an LX vs LC was for the grey interior too.

They fit fine, ran 255/85s on my Tacoma:



Aired down to 10-12 psi regularly with no problems. Though I wouldn't go that low on a 100, My truck weighed at least 1000 lbs less.

Thanks for posting the pics...I've been on the fence with these for about a year, driving Vince crazy I'm sure with all the calls about current availabity! Looks like we have damn near twin-tacomas too...other that the door count

Was thinking maybe trying them with 255's for the hundy? Still can't decide on a tire size, 255, 285, 295?

They're awesome wheels on either. Personally I feel like 255s are too small for a 100, even my Tacoma felt like I wanted bigger tires... at least visually. Performance wise, they're an awesome size. Good compromise between size, weight and sidewall height.

I might look into these once my current tires are up. What kind of price range are these?
$640 for a set of 4, plus shipping brought the total to around $700.

So just to clarify, these are mounted without spacers and they poke out a bit beyond the fender? I was looking into getting spacers for my LX, but good ones are going to be $300 shipped it looks like... might as well drop a little more and just get wheels that are awesome looking!

Yeah no spacers. I would say the wheel itself is just about flush with the fender, but these tires poke out a little.

With +10 offset rims (50mm further out than the stock +60mm wheels) do you get rubbing? Are the tires able to tuck up inside the wheel wells at full compression?
I love the look of these wheels and the low weight, but the spacing seems really like a big change from stock. I've been looking for something in the +45 to +35 range and have only found one option so far. Any ideas?
