Hey, any suggestions on some 16" wheels for my 1970 FJ40. I have 5- Mickey Thompson tires with LOTS of tread on them and with the price of tires, I am thinking of getting some wheels..

Thanks!! Phat

You'll need to double check the wheel spacing there. But that is probably the most economical choice.

4Runner rims, 80 series rims, all would fit. I've seem some painted 80 series rims on 40's before and thought they looked pretty nice.

What size are your tires? I've got 16x7 steel wheels on my 40 with around 3.25" of BS - they fit well with no clearance issues.

Hey Matt, they are 285/75/R16's, I do have disk breaks all around..

I'm pretty sure this is only true if you have wheel spacers. I think 3.5" backspace is the max on a 40 disc front axle (with a 15" wheel anyway) . Maybe with a 16" wheel you can get away with more, but definitely check into it. Jacket's solution is pretty good, IMO.

I have a used set I don't need/want just like those except they are 17x10" wide with 5" back spacing if someone so desires. Bargain basement pricing for RS'ers of course!

I decided on the OEM Toyota black albeit with 1.5" spacers for proper offset.
