Dark horse what brand of wheels are those? My new FJ is green I have been searching for some bronze wheels.
FN Wheels - FX Pro. Basically the Toyota 'Sema Wheel' knockoff....but better since they are wider

(probably cheaper other places)

Well, the timing of this question couldn't be better as I just installed Nitto Ridge Grappler 285/78/17's (load C, I personally feel load E is too much on the FJ but I am not bad mouthing the choice). I finally stepped up from the OEM 16in wheels with 285/75/16's as my FJ is also a daily driver and not a rock crawler. IMO the 285/75 is the PERFECT tire size... for me. It really fits nicely with no other modification other than a BMC. I am not 100% certain the BMC is needed but I got mine done right before I went to the tire shop for the install, thus I never mounted the Nittos with the body mount still in place. I do have SPC UCAs as well.

Hi John,

Your ride looks great! This may be a silly question: why is the 'E' rated tire harder on the FJ than the 'C'? In the Ridge Grapplers they are basically the same weight. I always thought the 'E's were heavier, which was the problem, but in the case of these tires there isn't really a weight difference according to Nitto. Is there another metric in play? I guess I don't know how they can be the same weight, but according to Nitto they are.

USUALLY the C's are lighter. Maybe not on the Nitto....maybe its a typo?

That's what I am wondering. I reached out to Nitto, I will post their response if/when I get one. I am curious, because otherwise if they are the same weight, what is the benefit of 'C's?

Always more questions then answers..

They would be less plys typically so they’d probably ride better. However most E rates have higher tread depths.
