Looks great. I would think that you have to have some serious rubbing going on right now at lock. What type of lift are you putting on? Are you going to use JT or TC upper arms? I am not a rim guy, at all, but those look good.
Thanks. The free lug nuts Weds sends with the wheels are actually too fat to fit a socket inside the hole so I wasn't able to test for rubbing that day. I have some spacers to try if they do rub. Went with the OME medium 2.5 lift. No plans for upper arms yet.

Hey man they look great! w/o a lift are you rubbing so far? and what size tire did you go with?! btw whoes altezza wagon in the backroung?! :)
Pretty sure they will rub lift or not. I will know for sure when I get it back later this week.

The wagon is my daily driver:

They look amazing! You have no idea how badly I want those wheels in a dark bronze...
Thanks! I am a fan of bronze wheels as well. I think they only have matte black, matte gun metal, and polish, but you should check with Dustin at FN to see what they can do. Maybe they can have them powder coated for you.

I shouldn't be spending the money on it... I will probably strip the stock LX wheels and have them powdercoated bronze. Not as cool as these wheels or the Volks but a lot easier to get approved from the CFO :)princess:)

Thank you uzj100 for posting photos of your wheel/tire setup, and thank you for ordering from us!

I just wanted to let everyone know that we do have the Hase Spec wheels in matte black on special right now as well. This is a great wheel for the Landcruiser 100, because it is strong, light, made in Japan, and has a very clean, simple style that flows well (as you can see in uzj100's photos).

If anyone has any questions about these wheels feel free to PM me!

Here are a few pics with the ome 2.5 lift installed and the weds adventure wheels. Very happy with the suspesion and the wheels/tires. No spacers and no rubbing with this setup with about 150 miles on the street. Not sure if an alignment will change that ot not. still have to fix 1 of 4 studs that broke...

How close to being flush are those tires/wheels?
Can you post a picture showing how much the tires are inboard/outboard?

I'm not a fan of non-OEM wheels on the 100 Series, but I have to admit that combination of truck color, lift, wheels and tires looks awesome.

Thanks for the comments. Very happy I went with these. The color match to the cruiser is very close.

Thanks. One either loves or hates the MAE's! I have seen a set on an B5 A4 in town. Looked great.
