Off with the bling-bling 20's and on with the new 16's

I've decided to get a little more serious with tires for Moab;







315/75x16 BFG KM2 on 16x8.5 MB 72 wheels
I'm sure this set-up will do well in Moab's slabs and in Ouray's snow trails...can't wait:clap:

everyone have a safe trip:wave::bigthumb:!!!

Victor,

Wow! The BFG TA/KM2's look sweet!!! I put a set on my FJ, but since I'm driving it out, I had to trade them in for a set of TA/ko's. Too much road noise for us old farts!

You'll do very well with those on the trails!!!

see ya' soon!

those look real good......

How did u black out your lights?
and do u happen to have a close up of your back lights?
thanks! I masked it off with tape and paper then spray painted it with plastic acrylic flat black, leaving the side areas light so the lights will be seen when blinkers are on.



these are Delta Fog Lamps they could be a bit brighter...

OPPS! you said back lights, duhhh;






there, hope that helps:cheers:

Now that is a nice combo.....A personal favorite for sure

Did you have to use a spacer to fit those wheels......They look alot like the ION 171's that I like but they require a spacer...

thanks! these MB 72's don't need spacers, they have a -6 off set so it kicks it out further than OEM TRD 16" giving it a bit of a wider stance;

Do the tires req a spacer though? I'm looking at a cheap set of AT's right now, but I've gotta act fast if I want them.


pending on the size...these are 315/75x16, equal to 34" in diameter and they will NOT FIT or NOT RECOMENDED on 16x7 rims...pending on what rim you're using, if they're stock and you run 285/75x16's, you will not need spacers...
if you go this big in diameter like I did, you'll need a whole lotta mods...

good luck!

Finally someone else has the same wheels as me, I roll them without the silver plastic middle insert on 305 Hankooks. I had the tire shop spray paint the axle and brakes black and this gave me the option to not use the silver middle insert. Your FJ looks great with the bigger tires. Sorry but I will be copying you soon with the Gobi Stealth.
