    This tire and wheel came stock on the 1980 FJ40 as a tire upgrade, It was the spare and never got the opportunity to Roll down the road, it just rode along as a covered spare on the mighty FJ40.

    I want to find 3 more of em, and go back to the stocker rims and tires w/spare, anyone have some layin around :slap:

    I really feel that that was a real stupid question but oh well, you never know...!!
    I have one right ???

    I also have a un-used snow cruiser on the carrier for on my 82 fj40, still has the little nipples :)

    I have seen 2 on Ebay this years. I know someone else that is putting together a full set for his 40. So not as stupid as you might think ;)

    But honestly, I think for a driver or wheeler you would be better off with a newer radial tire, if it was a TOTAL resto and show/garage queen than I think having the original tires would be cool. I have another un-used Dunlop(not snow cruiser) from the late 60's.

    Isn't Snow Cruiser VERY fitting for a Cruiser? :D

    When I took the spare tire cover off my cruiser and found a original snow cruiser tire.................I got to have 3 more.

    Kinda bummed me out in a way, cause I was stoked with the wagon wheel, mickey thompson look untill I took off the wheel cover, my cruiser is completely original w/ 89K.....stored in a climate controlled inviro for 12+ years, like new condition and completely original with exeption to the tires and wheels.....

    GOT TO HAVE THE snow cruisers 78's now.....sheeeeez !!

    I have three of them mounted on OEM rims now, I have actually run across quite a few lately. If I see some more, I will drop you a line. I only need three for my trailer... :D
