I am building an off road trailer, well not me personally, but I need a TRD Gun Metal FJ Cruiser wheel or a couple of 80 series OEM wheels the 16x8 size.

Maybe they are collecting dust in your garage and you want them gone??

Whooo good luck man! I looked for those a while back, un-obtanium as far as I could see. I also didn't want to pay 300 a wheel, which was what one guy was asking.

Still, that has gotta be the best looking Toyota rim out there, IMO.

I picked up a pair of 80 series wells for the same reason off Ebay a while back for like $50 to my door. Those are out there cheap. No I just need to build the actual trailer :doh:

Last time I was at Blake's Salvage in Erie, they had a stack of early 80 rims (pre 95 with the conical lug nuts). But that was over a year ago. I can go pick them up for you if they still have 'em.

Here you go Chris. A bit pricey :eek: but they are anthracite (http://www.toyota-4runner.org/sale-suspension-wheels-tires/149606-3rd-trd-anthracite-wheels-16-rialto-ca-%241000.html) TRDs.

Should have asked this first. But why are you not using 100 series wheels?

I just happen to have 4 rims from an 80 collecting dust in my garage. They might be the ones you are looking for. They look straight but I have not cleaned them up. How about $100 for all 4? PM me to come take a look.

Definitely do not want to hijack this thread... I am not looking for these TRD wheels :) I am looking for 16" wheels for a 94 80 series. Steel or aluminum (OE aluminum preferred so I know they will work and maybe even be able to use my lugnuts)... should have bought Old40Dog's at the swap meet! Missed that opportunity... Let me know if anyone knows where I can get a set. THANKS!

Almost impossible to find hubs that use 14mm stubs 5 on 150mm. I believe it can be done with spacers though.. maybe Sandstorm can verify.

What does AT do. Don't they offer a hub match to the 100 series? Whatever it takes it seems to me having wheels that interchange to be invaluable.

These guys will make adapters... Not sure of price. See "BLANK-10":

Just thought I'd share...

Chris informed me he found some 100 wheels and spacers. If you have 4 of the 16" wheels for an 80 series id be interested in talking to you. Thanks, Matt

Yep thanks guys for the ideas and offers, forgot I posted this thread, glad it has legs and might help someone else out.

My trailer guy was able to find a local shop to fab us up a 5x5 to a 5x150mm hub adapter.

I also found a shop in AZ that would be able to do it.

So, Nakman kindly broke up a set of 100 series wheels for me. Thank's Tim!

For future reference, the trailer guy I am using had several hub options and only one was toyota friendly at 6x5.5 but... no one will fab up a 6x5.5 to a 5x150mm. The dimensions just don't work out.

My thought was to get a hub that was the 6x5.5, so that if I ever went to another Toyota I could match the wheels... I can still do this, obviously by just swaping the axel hub for a 6x5.5

Anyway, great learning lesson on all this for me and my trailer is in production.

Carry on with your wheel swap!
