Yes, then add in your payload, then service factor.I am no expert in this but it seems to me that a 5,000 lb suv could create more than 8,000 lbs of dynamic force when driving, especially over washboard or other rough roads.
But maybe they take that into account with wheel max loads. Is it as simple as 4 wheels need to have a max load more than the weight of the vehicle?
Hi James. I don't know much about the FJZ80, but I will comment regarding an 80 series LC. You can follow my guidance here. I believe that a 1997 unloaded 80 series Toyota LC with add-ons (winch, roof rack, tire carrier, etc.) is approaching 5700 pounds. You must factor in passengers and payload to make this final determination, but 2 adults plus 2 kids plus a fully loaded ice chest and tool box is approaching 600 additional pounds. So let's say 6300 pounds/4 = 1575 pounds, so you are getting a little close regarding the rim load capabilities. Factor in some jumps, and you are over the limit for an 80 series LC. You may want to consider forged rims ($$$) and/or bead-locks (not for street in CA). Good luck. Gene.Will a rim with a 1600lb max load capacity work for my FJZ 80.
Does anyone know what the factory wheels are rated for?
Do a search for posts from @Golgo13 as he is an engineer for Toyota and has dealt with the wheels for these trucks. (No they are NOT forged wheels)Does anyone know what the factory wheels are rated for?
