Just a quick one, new to this whole car lingo but willing to learn, if I go with 16x8" sunnies and 265/75/16s that would fit inside the guards and not rub taking into consideration I haven't lifted the suspension (yet). I have a MY15 Dual cab MN triton if that makes any difference

Thanks in advance, Damon. :?:

Damon
I know its a slog but read through this thread as all your answers and photos are in here.
You will learn a lot more than just being told the answer.
Post up any clarification questions you have

Hi.
Will the MQ steel rims J16x7JJ fit on a ML.
Looking for something a bit stronger than the 17 inch alloys that are on it.

Do you mean the black and silver ones or the silver alloys that they first introduced on the challenger?

I agree. I've seen photos of someone who did it but I'm struggling to remember where.

I'm not entirely sure if these are all the same rim, they appear to look different depending on the angle of the shot. Or there could be 2 different rims... :oops: :oops:

That picture may be of a challenger, not too sure. Anyway that was as close as I found when I went looking.

Hi all,
Wanting to clarify a suitable wheel from the list.
Ive just obtained a 2011 GLR with a 40mm lift. Wheels and tyres are stock.

I intending on putting 265/70R16 on the car. I am tossing up whether to leave the stock alloys on it (16/7) or try and find a second hand set of 16x8's. I'd prefer alloys to minimise the negative effect on breaking - but if steelies are the only way - then so be it.
From reading through this post, a +20 to +25 offset would be suitable to keep the tyres within the guards.
Does anyone know of a factory alloy that has the correct offset?

From reading, it seems that GU patrols are only around +10 and Landcruisers are zero.

Any clarification would be appreciated.

Thanks Ag,

I did do that, and all the other 196 replies and that lead me to search for the offsets of the wheels that I listed (from the first post).

The clarification I need is if there are any other factory alloys that would suit or even if the 16x8 rim is necessary for what I intend to do. I am slightly concerned that the +38 offset of the stock alloy may scrub out, even with the 40mm lift.

Some of the prado and hummer alloys fit your needs
I used to run 16*8 +15 rims and they are a perfect fit for keeping the tyre within the guard.

you will have no issue with your standard alloys scubbing with 265's. Lots of people run that combination

Thanks for that - I'll try down the prado route and see where that leads me.
Again, thanks for the help!
Edit: any suggestion on which model Prado has stock 16x8 alloys?

None, they are 17 * 7.5.
If you are dead set on 16*8 then its patrol or aftermarket afaik
