I'm thinking of buying a set of 20" x 9.5" rims (like on the sport Tundra) but the only A/T tire I can find is a 285 x 55 x 20. Will these be to wide for my '95 Land Cruiser without a lift???

I just got some 22s to drop it down some. It is :grinpimp: but I didn't put AT tires on.

The outside half of the rim will be fine. The inside clearance will be reduced by about 34mm. I would crawl under there to see what might be of interference--especially when fully turned and suspensions compressed. If worse comes to worse, you could get wheel spacers.

New Tires / Sizes

I've done a little more research. Man, 20" A/T tires are hard to find and EXPENSIVE. Anyway, found some NITTO Terra Grappler 305 x 50 x 20. Anyone running these and do you think they'll fit???

I guess the reason is a found a set of Enkei rims (same ones as on the Tundra sport) new in the box for $450.00 (for all 4) from a guy local. The lowest price I've seen on these rims is $290.00 each. Just a deal I can't pass up. "But honey, I saved $750.00!"

I know it's obligatory to give him some $h!z over the dubs, but consider this:

Many here run 33s, whether in the 12.50 or 285 variety.
That is 8.5 inches of sidewall on a 16" rim.

For that same sidewall on a 20" rim, one would need a 37" tire.
So one would have the clearance of a 37" tire offroad while having the very streetable sidewall of a 33" tire. Biased toward street, I know, but no less sidewall and a lot more clearance offroad than the 33s.

OK... I picked up the set mentioned above off a Tundra with the sport 20" rim Enkei package. The guy measured the diameter of the center bore and it said it was over 4-1/8"... So I measured my stock rim and it looked right around 4-1/8 to 4-1/4" (or right under)... Well I get home and try to mount the rear and it doesn't clear the hub .... almost but I need about an 1/8- 1/4" more room.... I measured the back space of the rim to where the base of the lugs (whatever you call that) and it 's about over 2" needed for a spacer... CRAP!!!!!!
:mad:

So my only option is to buy 3" spacers or if they make 2.5" spacers.... Trail- Gear makes 3" but Slee only offers 1.5"

Anyone has any 3" spacer with nuts laying around that they want to sell??

email me biaggi@nc.rr.com since my PM's don't seem to be coming through.

Thanks in Advance!!!!

Alright so I am a noob and I didn't use the right terminology... I was typing fast to get a quick and 'valid' response from a forum member and not some BS.... So do you have any knowledgeable input that will help? :hmm:

It looks like the 06 Tundra has a 106.mm hub and my 96 LX450 has 108mm, thus the rim not fitting... So I need to find out which size wheel spacers I need. If a 1.5 " works and the rim won't hit the hub, I'm fine, but I doubt the 1.5" will suffice and it looks like I need at least <2.5" space, which TG only offers 2 and 3" and no 2.5". Also the 3" will put the rims/tires about 2" past the flares, which I would not want..... So I am in a pickle with these Enkei's..

Don't take it personal. There are a variety of these trucks with new to me configurations popping up from time to time. My 94 has rear drums while most do not.
I have so far stuck to the norm and kept my 16" wheels and haven't seriously considered changing so I couldn't tell you for sure what you'd need. My suggestion is to sell the Tundra rims and keep your LX's. You will have a much easier time finding tires and if you got those Tundra wheels for less than they are worth then you can make a little money. Put them in the mud classifieds and somebody will buy them.
I'm not 100% sure but those wheel spacers in the 3" variety might put some added stress on your knuckles but don't quote me on that. Best of luck.

Take the rims to a machine shop and get them to mill out the centers.
