New From Maine

Hello Cruiser Lovers - Just picked up an 07' FJ with 120K on the odom. One owner, garage kept. I imagine there is tons of stuff on here already regarding tires/wheels and Bilstein 5100's.

I had previously owned two 07's, and a Trail Edition from 2011. I've regretted getting rid of them every day that I didn't have em. So recently I sold a 91' LC and flipped the cash into my 07' Fj. Gonna drive it every day and want to make and max my tire and wheel choice. I didn't want to get into the lift process, but wanted to consider the Bilstein 5100 road, as I thought it would allow for a bit bigger tire. Anyone else gone that route?

TRD wheels on Yoko Geo's, or?

Any info will help!

Best to you all,

Matthew

Re: New From Maine

Welcome from Philo,OH! I run 5100's up front, they have a decent ride, just a little stiffer than stock. I set them on the 3rd notch I believe, to clear 285/70/17's on after market rims. Still had to do the bmc though.
