This might be a total noob question, but I searched and couldn’t find it in the forums. I’ll likely be buying a 2005 LX470, and it has bald tires. I wouldn’t want to drive them over 45 mph. So the very first order of business will be to get tires. BUT, this is going to be an overlanding/hunting/fishing rig, so I think I might want to go with the older 16” rims off the earlier FJ100s so I have more sidewall to cushion when airing down. That said, this has the AHC suspension, and I don’t know if there are any issues with brake calipers, hubs, or anything else. I am fairly confident I can find someone to trade these 18“ rims to so I wouldn’t have to spend any extra cash. But being new to this vehicle, I am hoping someone can educate me before I make a mistake, if it is indeed going to be a problem.
