Actually, I don't care if it's stock. I just need stock-sized.

Even better if it's got a skinny 31" tire on it, suitable for use as a spare. It will be mounted underneath, so I don't much care what the wheel looks like, just as long as it fits. :)

Whatcha got?

Have you tried Jim's?

60 series wheels were $25 I think last fall. He had lots.

Alex, those wheels belonged to John Barnes and were to carry his 33s. Wear them in good health.

I don't believe I ever met John, but I did meet his wife on the weekend, and saw his (very clean! Wow!) FJ60. Will do.

Been thinking about picking up a set of steelies and getting them sandblasted and powder coated. Anybody know a place that could do that?

Eldorado556: I assume that was you I met at Yoda Jim's this afternoon? (I was getting the 60 bumper, silver 60 with saggy back end. Naturally, I forgot to pick up a 31x10.5 spare tire while I was there.) Good luck with your seats and wheels...

Yup, that was me. :cheers:

I was also looking for a better 31" spare, couldn't find anything. I did score a 4 Runner inclinometer though.

If you ever need a hand with some wrenching let me know. I might attempt to swap my tie rods tomorrow.
