    I got an 87' FJ60 with 33x12.50/15 TSL's... someone told me the stock back spacing was 3.5 or 3.75, i was looking at black daytona steelies and they only come in 4'' back spacing, will that setup work?
    thanks

    It'll more in likely rub the calipers. I have a 60 with that exact same tire and 3.5" bs. IMO, 3" would be better as my tires rub the rear inner wheel well at full compression. The paints rubbed off a little in the back. I'll probably go with 2.5-3" bs next time.

    Try Summit Racing, I have heard you can order just about any b/s on those same wheels from them. You may not be able to find it on their website, so I suggest calling them.

    I suggest that you consider a set of wheels with adequate backspacing for both the brake calipers and the width of tire you are running.

    Stockton wheel will make a set of wheels wiith just what you need - for a reasonable price.
