So I have a few issues after driving this rig as a DD for almost 10 plus years and several mods over the years. I finally have in a shop blowing it all apart fixing all of the annoying little issues. I just knew that I would know exactly what I would go back with BUT I'm stuck and need your help make a few decisions.

which wheel?

Ill post pics along the way of the build but for now she is a 1988 FJ62 with manual windows. (which I think is cool cause its a half year) dechromed emblems will be flat black. This is the look. But help me with wheels. Wanna do this right and once....previously I have run old school 15" wagon wheels well cause they are cool. But then saw the FJCruiser wheel and thought even cooler but no they need spacers which I did and now regret. So, hence the steel wheel. I had the stock chrome but wanna run a 33" 10.5 BFG. Thoughts?

40 steelies no question if you're fine with 33x10.5's being pretty much the biggest you can go for available tires on that size rim. Anything bigger and consider 70/80 steelies or fj cruiser/tundra/tacoma steelies painted silver :)
