The guy that sold the tires gets them from local dealer take offs. These were brand new and don't appear to have been used more than off the truck and around the lot. He could not get a vin# for the vehicle they came off of. The seller was located in San Jose CA.
I don't want to give them back, trade them in or anything just looking for a little piece of mind. It would be great if someone like me had just purchased a new FJ within the last couple of weeks and said they had them yank the alloys off for TRD's or whatever. My post was just a shot, I've installed the wheels this evening and I'm running them.
The dealers here want to charge $1700 for a set of alloys, at least that is the price I was quoted from 3 places. That is without the tires.
I do think those of you that have been able to enjoy your FJCs for several months are old.
or maybe I'm just jealous.
I've been trying to find one on a lot equipped the way I wanted for 2 months. Finally, a dealer located 2 hours away started trying to find what I wanted and found a match in Pittsburg except for it having the steel wheels. It has CQ, rack, wheel cover, hitch, arm rests, and carpet mats. I could have done without the arm rests, mats and wheel cover but figured I'd splurge.
Thanks for everyone's replies.
