Red face Re: FJ Cruiser Specific 16"17" Wheel/Tire Fitment Guide

OK all you blue room gurus, I have a question. I had a tire guy tell me that 07 FJs came with EITHER a +15 or a 0 offset and that the only way to tell was to pull a tire off and look at the inside of the wheel. He seemed knowledgeable and looked it up in his massive book but this seems odd.

I'm trying to upgrade to 305/70/17s and so I need new wheels. Getting the body mount chop done tomorrow. I have 285s now with maybe a little rub

Thanks for any help you can offer - I've been doing my research but this is the first of heard of this. I thought the stock wheels were +15 so going to 0 would push them out a bit and widen the stance

Thats weird.
I had the opposite issue, I was struggling to find 285 BFG's, no stock.
That was why I went 275's.
That was only last week.
Maybe depends on the dealer, I didnt really shop around too much.

Think Ill look for similar rims at 8.5 x 17, 0 offset.

Can I ask what wheels you got?
Im struggling to find anything close to a 0 offset.

Cheers
Marc
G'day Marc,
hahaha, BFG is the one tyre I would never fit..... just don't like em.
I prefer Coopers' .... current set have 150K on them.... and never chunk off....

I looked for the "right" rim for several years, and found what I wanted in the US, so I imported the rims, and saved a heap in the process....
The US has a massive range - compared to Aust. and so much cheaper ( supply n demand ) ....

Cheers
Baz

The very first post in this thread state the stock rim is a 15 mm offset.

"Stock FJ cruiser wheel sizes
16x7.5 Alloy TRD 29lbs
17x7.5 '07-'10 Alloy 26lbs

17x7.5 Steel 31lbs

6x5.5 (6x139.7 metric) bolt pattern

Re: FJ Cruiser Specific 16"17" Wheel/Tire Fitment Guide

So, here I am reading through this thread, hoping something would pop out at me...nothing. Don't get me wrong, there is a LOT of great information and insight here, just not exactly what I have been looking for. I am trying to find 15x8" wheels with a 106.1 center bore, 6x139.97/5.5 bolt pattern. Every place I go wants either "vehicle specific" information, forcing me to view only OEM spec wheels OR they don't list the center bore so I can be certain I am getting the correct fitment. And, given my lack of knowledge in this area, maybe I am wanting something that just doesn't exist. Can someone with infinitely more knowledge than me point me toward VERY PLAIN BLACK (like the Trail master TM9) 15" wheels that would work on my '07 Cruiser? If 15" are not available in a workable size, then I am looking for VERY PLAIN (see attached picture) 16" wheels...ANY help would be greatly appreciated.
