You have a '77 so you need a disc brake OEM wheel. The drum brake ones are riveted on the inside, the disc brake ones are welded. The drum brake rivets won't clear the calipers. I knew about 10 years ago, they were still available from Toyota for about $100. The only issue was that the new ones came painted black.

I have plenty of drum brake ones (about 50) but not a single disc brake one.

I'm pretty sure I have a disk brake one I'm not using. It's not super clean, but it is painted gray if I remember right. As Tree said, these were still available new back in 2009 when I bought five new one's.

Hi Lars,
Well, that is the same size tire I will be putting on the stock wheels that I have but they are light gray. Are you sure your wheel is white?

Lars, I appreciate your efforts but I'm going to keep looking for something a little cleaner. Thanks, though!

Couple of scotch brite pads will clean that up and a rattle can grey will make it look new. That's what I did the the 5 rims i put on my 70

Lars, thanks a bunch for everything. I think I owe you a couple more cheladas! You know you have help on yours whenever you're ready for it. Wes, I'm ready for that paint or at least what color you use!! Have any idea what color to use on bumperettes that have been painted black?
