My off road camper trailer has 17" rims, can these be used on my Hilux that has 15' rims?

if they are same stud pattern there should be no real issues fitting the rims.

I doubt that your camper trailer has the same stud pattern as your Hilux, but you never know, ask your camper trailer people. Otherwise there are plenty or wheel makers that make 17" wheels for a Hilux. Remember changing to 17" wheels on your lux will mean you are also changing the rolling diameter slightly, if you are to retain a 4WD type tyre.

So if ya using a 33inch tire on a 10in diameter rim and 33s no a 30inch rim, theres a difference?

A 30' rim..? Technically your correct off course but in the land of reality your wrong, once you put 17" wheels on the LUX you will need to use a low profile tire to retain the exact rolling diameter, low profile tyres aren't practical for 4WD applications, hence my point.

You would be suprised about the size of rims on 4wds. I am believer in 15in as best.. thats my thoughts.

But on comp buggys and comp trucks now lots are 17+ and some over to 19in in USA and heading bigger rim sizes... less sidewall to damage and other advantages, but I dont think they would bag as well.
