Sure do. But you may find the tyres will be almost protruding past the fenders. so you may have to fit some flare. Toyota haven't put the wider wheels on the RV Troop turbo 'cos it would have meant fitting flares all round which would have added to the cost of the vehicle.

Thanks David
Thats just what I wanted to hear. My cruiser has flares and ARB side rails so they shouldn't protrude past the fenders.

I know the rims from the 100 series fit onto the 78 series but I thought the GXL rims from the 80 series had a different offset to the 75 series ute. I'm talking about the GXL rims not the standard split rims.

finding a set will be your hardest challenge. They're pretty hard to get hold of . I've just managed to track down a full set in Perth through several different avenues and while they need a bit of work I'm sure I can get them in good nick.

Duncan's right. The offset will be your problem. From memory, 80 series has about 115mm backspacing and your 75 series will have about 70 mm backspacing. This means the inside of the wheel will probably foul at the front. Prado 16x7 rims have the same backspacing as the 80 series too.

I can't be absolutely certain about the offsets but this is what I found recently. My camper trailer had LandCruiser split rims on it and just out of curiosity I fitted one of GXL 16x8's. The rim was no nearer the chassis than with the 7.50/16.The offset appeared to be all outwards. I was then give a set of Prado rims which I have permanently fitted and they miss the chassis by the same amount as the 16x8s and the split rims. It would therefore appear that the inner offset for Toyota rims stays the same but the outward offset is changed depending on the car to which they are being fitted. Also check the following:- even though a Prado rim may fit your car, its load rating may be insufficient and in the event of an accident, your insurance company may wipe you. Again, get a second opinion on this information. Derek.

Derek,

Landcruiser split rims come in two different offsets. The RV 80 series rims have the same backspacing as you described. But the 75 series rims are the same as the 60 and 40 series and have considerably less backspacing.

They don't fit the front. they foul and wont rotate they won't fit 40 or 60 series either.The only way to get them to fit is the use of properly engineered wheel spacers to set the rim away from the tie rods and calipers.
see ya.
