Wanted: One 80 series rim. Cheap.

As you may know I popped a tire at CM. I put a used BFG on and now that my replacement new tire is in, I want to keep that mounted as a second spare - if I can find an extra rim cheap.

Central Denver.

Daniel,

I have a set of 5 but they are later model wheels that use the shank style lug nuts. I only need 4 of them though to put my emissions testing tires on. It isn't in the best shape (lots of mag chloride) and will need to be cleaned up but you could have it for cheap if interested :thumb:

shank style lug nuts

What are they?

Looks don't matter.

early 80 series had acorn style lugs with the 96-97's getting a shank style lug. Mix and match on the same vehicle would me a pain to deal with in the real world of trail repairs.

Why Toyota changed? I can only guess it was cheaper to build the shank style wheel? Who knows.

Do you have extra shank lug nuts? This wheel would be a trail spare, perhaps never used, so I think that is manageable.

Unfortunately I don't, meaning if you have to buy lug nuts just for this wheel even a cheap wheel won't end up being so cheap :o - I do have a set of 16" rims that require the acorn lug nuts but I want to sell those as a set if I don't keep them...They were the ones Nakman had on his Tacoma back when.

Hey I've got three 80 series aluminum wheels just sitting in my garage. You can have one for 35. Not sure what shipping would cost though...
