Hint: look at tires with an 80- or 85-aspect ratio. Tall and skinny.
I`ve run 255/75/17`s in Hankook ATM`s with spydertrax spacers. they were pizza cutterish.

Nice looking rig. Too bad you traded it in on a Renault.

The owner's manual for your FJ is right here. <--- This is a link. Many answers to your questions are contained within.

those pics were courtesy of smalldog!

that was taken back in NJ in Wharton when the toytec kit was on. GOD I miss that place.

and the titan goes oui oui out the tail pipe too! doesn`t get much better than that.

yes, I agree, it was an awesome rig, hopefully someone will get better use out of it than just sitting in the driveway looking pretty.

Good thread. People should have to read this before their account is activated.

BTW, I run 38's, but only drive straight.

Agreed! Thanks to VK for putting this together. I wish I had known all this last year when I first got my fj.
The Original owner put an oversized 18" tire on a rim that probably shouldn't ever been put on the fj to begin with. Maybe that's why they sold it? who knows.. It took me a very long time to get that abortion straightened out. This thread summed it up quite nicely..

The single worst thing you can do is put an ill-fitting wheel/tire combo on an FJ (or 4Runner or Tacoma).

Just because the bolt pattern fits, doesn't mean that the wheels are the right size.

I think VK summed up something quite well. A belief I have had my whole life, but really wasn't sure how to say it correctly and to the point.

I scream about off-set. I try and convey "how tall of a tire" are you wanting?

What i should have said is..... what VK said above. Just because the bolt pattern fits doesn't mean that the wheels are the right size.....!!!!

and I agree 100% The rims that were on it when I got it. set the the wheel out to far. so the turning radius wasn't very good.
I finally did replace the tires after a month.. 285 60 18's.. that helped some. but I didn't realize the issue with the rims.. until I got in touch with Discount tires.. After a few Pm's and pictures.. They told me what the problem was. They were really cool about it too. They sent me a couple of rims to test fit. Before replacing the entire set.
After everything was done.. It was like have a completely different truck. I had no idea that it would turn as sharp as it does..

Re: What size tires will fit my FJ?

Thx for posting all the info on tire sizes, etc. Awesome work!! Had a question for u...I have 265/75/16 BFG All-Terrains with 80K (they're done) on my '08 FJ TTSE. Want to get the new BFG A/T 2 in 305/70/16. Question is: do you think the TRD wheels (16"x7.5") would work or would it be better to get a wider wheel/rim (for gas mileage and such)??

Thanks...appreciate it

BFG recommends a rim width range of 8-9.5" for that particular tire. Your call, but I think you'll be fine.
