    First off I would like to say hello to everyone, I am new to this forum. My question is, I found a good deal on some used eagle alloys in the paper, they are 15x10 6 lug GM. Will these fit my 77 FJ40. I appreciate any help thanks.

    Welcome!
    (How long have you lurked)

    As long as the center is the older, large diameter opening for the lock out to pass through on the front end. Go look at them and measure the hole, not all 6 on 5.5 bolt pattern wheels have the same center hole opening. Should be at least 4.75" opening, or really close. The smaller one is only about 3 or 3.5".


    Ask about the backspacing too, as if it is over 3.75, you will have fitment issues with tie rod ends and calipers. You may have issues with the 3.75 back space, and need to run a .250" spacer too.
    Good luck!

    -Steve
