    Here are wheels on my FJ. This is of coarse before I started the restore.

    I kinda like them but, others say they are "Ghetto". I can buy new ones but, I don't knwo if they are considered ugly enough to get rid of.

    What you think..

    They have more class than that even in the ghetto. I like stock wheels. If you want bling, get some original chrome wagon wheels.

    Wait for my post tomorrow.

    Nice rig. But those hideus things have got to go. The only thing that rig is missing are stock steelies w/hubcaps. Seriously, nice truck.

    who cares what others say, you're driving it. I got ghetto shiz all over my truck. I had a set of 5 org wheels with hubcaps and semi decent tires and I couldnt even get $50 for the set.

    if you're doing a full resto, put wheels on the end of the list. what you got will work in the mean time.

    I always think that 99% of the time alloy wheels for an older vehicle can look really bad and sometimes cheap-looking unless the rest of the rig is blinged as well - something like how chicks "accesorise" an outfit! Personally, while they aren't too bad, I don't think those ones quite suit your truck, (just IMHO!). If you go stock white hard top then I think they might look worse.

    If your after a little bit of bling then I'll also give a vote for the chrome wagon wheels. For stock bling, steelies with hub caps and knobbly, aggressive tyres is also cool in my book.

    :)

    I don't like them, I have 4 more fitting aluminum wheels I am willing to get rid of pretty cheap if you are interested.

    Its tough to find the right aluminum rims for a cruiser. Those may look okay on something else I just don't think they fit the cruiser.

    I have alcoa rims and still don't the way they look. Some day I will go back to oem. That is a cool looking cruiser. I also like the look of some rims I saw at les schwab, they were black teflon coated, not sure who makes them.

    I love that rig above. How much do steelies and hub caps cost?
    And dont you have to have a tall skinny tire on them?

    Ghetto is not a bad thing. Sometimes having a ugly 40 keeps people away:). If you like them keep them. However, if you are looking into some wheels I perfer to get 16 or 17 wheels.

    Thanks, that's my 40.

    I think you can still get the stock steel wheels from Toyota for about $70 each and the caps are $30 or $35. You can run a 10.5 width tire on stock 15 inch rims. I like the skinnies on a 40. Those pictured are 31x10.5. A lot of people run 33x9.5.
