First time forum poster

Hello, first time posting here but I've been creeping the forums for some time before I was an FJ owner.

I've had mine for 2 years now, put on about 50k kilometres since I got it and starting to upgrade some things, just ordered SCS Ray 10 Gunmetal 17x9 rims and Bilstein 5100s for the front and rear.

I want to go 285/75 R17 or 285/70 R17 and am thinking of Toyo Open Country AT2 as most of my driving is highway.

I have BFG AT K02 tires at the moment and I find they're hard to keep balanced.

I'm hoping I won't have to do the BMC for this, but the rep at SCS was saying I probably have to for anything over 265/70 R17. I think the 5100s would solve any issues with rubbing but we'll have to wait and see.

Anyway, recommendations on tires is gladly accepted.

Greetings from VT! My favorite All-terrain was Cooper S/T Maxx. Great testing/review article on Expedition Portal “Where the rubber meets the road” is worth reading

Re: First time forum poster

Welcome, wheel offset will determine need of spacers, will most likely need BMC.
I currently have 285/75/17's and needed both. Lots of info on the site, good luck.
