Ok, so I have narrowed it down to 4 trying to keep a retro look with some modern in there somewhere. Which one looks right on the truck to you?

I also like #1 in part because its familiar and telegraphs what's underneath.

BTW guys, prepare to drool heavily. I have seen this beauty in person.

Im not big on the 80 series wheel, because its so common. I like the rest, but not sure which one. I think the last TRD wheel would look good, but can't find a pic that does it justice except this one.

I like the 1 and 4. Sporty but yet stockish but not common. I do like the TRD wheels but there is just way to many of them out there.

I like 1,2, & 4.

If the OEM 80 series wheels are too common you can always have them powder coated.

I like the second one also....

Not a huge fan of 80 wheels on 60's either..

I was gonna say #1, but if you don't like 80 series then #2 is my second choice.

The biggest issue with the stock 80 wheels is there backspacing. Even with the flares, they stick out slightly and with 315s, that will increase. I may have to buy the tires and mount some up. I like the #4 wheels and I can get them in an offset that will put them just under the flare. Not too blingy either.

That is sweet.

#4 classic and understated.

If you want unique/original, I like #3 with the white body. I also like #2.

All look great, I like 2 and 3 best for uniqueness.

Have you considered 80 series steelies?. I have them on my white 62, wanted a 16" wheel for tire selection and really like the look of a stock period correct wheel, only drawback is the weight.

The truck is so cool, doubt you could go wrong!

Gary, have you thought about these FJ Cruiser wheels? I think they look pretty snazzy...

#4 hints at the original stockers yet look modern without being too blingy. Gets my vote.

I think its #4 for now. They are relatively inexpensive so I wouldn't feel bad to swap them out down the road.

You can drop my gun metal TRD off at Christo's next time you are there, I seem to be there a lot lately.
