    Has anybody put stock FJcruiser 17" steel wheels on a FJ40?
    What do you need to make it work.. I would think it be a bolt on easy option?

    Anybody have pictures of this?

    I don't know if they would work or not but I do know that the FJC steel wheels do not like LTBs. I know a couple of guys, one in particular, who runs LTBs on FJC steelies and those tires LOVE to pop beads - I'm talking about at least one a ride.

    I wouldn't be offroading it to much and if I do it wouldn't be to crazy.. its mainly going to be a daily driver and some dirt roads for my hobbies like fishing and mountain bike rides... I may have to try a wheel out to see how it fits..

    Thanks

    I'd be guessing here but I don't think it has the correct center hole diameter.

    I would think those would require some pretty thick spacers. Stock wheel backspacing is like 3.5 inches and the backspacing on my tacoma (same as FJC I believe) is over 5.

    haven't had mine off in a while, but the stock FJC backspacing is either 4.5 or 4.75" IIRC.
