New to it all...

Alright, so I've finally made a move to take an active part in this forum; I've previously only read it from time to time and find it very informative! I'm a newbie to it all: FJs, 4x4s, and Toyota. Never thought I had a dream vehicle til I saw the FJ... So, hello all!

Re: New to it all...

Welcome! If you're new to offroading too, I highly suggest making local meet & greets that involve wheeling. Don't get into a rush and learn from the guys that have been doing for a while. They're experience is invaluable.

Re: New to it all...

Hi and welcome. If you're thinking tires you must assess what you'll be doing. I'm a 4x4 newb too and just widening from 265 to 285 may not give you anything. 285 all-terrains are good for traction but if you want to really "go anywhere" you will want taller and wider and into M/Ts. It depends on your goal. Consult the experts here!

Re: New to it all...

Welcome and good luck on your tire choice.

If you start with tires, your gonna want a lift, lights, rails, etc. Get out of here quick, the mod bug will be coming to see you.
