Agreed! Thanks to VK for putting this together. I wish I had known all this last year when I first got my fj.
The single worst thing you can do is put an ill-fitting wheel/tire combo on an FJ (or 4Runner or Tacoma).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.
^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.The single worst thing you can do is put an ill-fitting wheel/tire combo on an FJ (or 4Rnr or Taco).

BFG recommends a rim width range of 8-9.5" for that particular tire. Your call, but I think you'll be fine.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)??
I have original TRD FJ 16 inch wheels, I know factory tire size is 265/75/16. But would consider and prefer a bit larger tire to fill in the tire well a bit better. Any thoughts? Any pictures ? Was thinking 275/75/16? But that's a bit wider but not taller correct? Thanks!
Your right Discount tire here in High Point, NC advised against mounting anything above a 295 series on the stock 7.5" rim.
