I have a set of Goodrich Baja Champion All Terrain 31x10 on my white rims on my '78 FJ40. I've had them for 6 years and they look awesome - but I'm not offroading. I love the look of the original size tires with stainless steel but wanted the opinions of a few folks here. Will there be a problem with suspension height with 31s now set up? If anyone is a fan of the original, what tires and wheels are most accurate or what wheel/tire set up has that look and is most efficient. I'm a bit torn so help from those who know more or have experienced both would be really appreciated. Thanks!

Originals are still able to be bought new from Toyota as a 15x5.5 inch rim. Looks amazing. Another option that is very popular is a wheel from cityracers. The city racer is a 16x6 inch rim, looks OEM, can fit OEM hubcaps and can fit more tire sizes, but they are a lot more expensive than OEM.

You can buy new OEM rims at your dealer, too, and hubcaps. 235-75-15s are the typical tire size people use now, however they came with H-78-15s, which are more like a 225-75-15. IMO, go with 235s for a stock-like appearance.

So would a P235 or 245 / 70R-16 or 75R-16 Yokohama Geolander G015 A/T look better than P265/75R-16 Yokohama Geolander G015 ?
