Hi I'm pretty sure 16 inch won't fit as you need 17 inch to clear the brake calipers.

16 inch will not fit and are not sufficient load rating.

No, sorry they wont fit.
The 105s and 70 Series run a zero offset rim, and a HDJ100 and VDJ/ UZJ 200 run a positive 60mm rim.
You will be better off looking for some 200 series factory alloys. They are out there, just have to look on net such as Ebay because people want to upgrade their factory rims.

Brian,

I am assuming you mean that you purchased a 200GX with the steel wheels? If so, I am looking to purchase some additional wheels for my GX and would be happy to discuss buying them off you if you decide to 'unload' them.

Peter.

You can get new genuine steelies for the 200 for as little as $110 if you talk sweetly to your dealer's spare parts dept.

Is there a reason to prefer steel rims over alloys?

OzBadDude,

I have a preference for steel as I believe in certain rough circumstances that will tend to bend rather than crack.

A bent rim may be able to be repaired/hammered back into some sort of shape, a cracked alloy is buggered IMHO.
