I have some really good cases in 205/16 for use a spares. My main wheels are 16x7 but I would like to keep these spares and want to mount them on the back of a slide-on camper.

I would therefore like to keep the weight down as much as possible.

Is anyone aware of any alloy wheels available in 16X6 or even 16x5.5 in 6 stud pattern for a Hilux?

Thanks, in anticipation, for any help.

Hi Roly
I run 205/16 on 16x7 trac2 rims on the caravan. The fit is good, but 6's would be better. (less sidewall exposed) I have a idea there is some std alloy 16x6 rims around from either Triton/rodeo/navara/courier top end models. Good steel ones are available in gqrb30/navara/ford courier/etc that wouldnt be to much heavier than alloys if they are.

Thanks Andrew

I thought some of the earlier models as you listed may have alloys in the skinnier size. Alloys will always be lighter than steel in same size, and when you have to mount them high up every little bit of weight saved is of benefit. The 205/16 has exactly the same rolling radius as my 245/70x16 (or close enough not be any different than typical worn spare versus new tyre rolling radius) so should not be a major load on LS diff for the typical limited use they would be put to.

Thanks again for your help. I'm off to scrounge the wreckers yards with renewed confidence.

The Toyota Prado "getaway" and "world cup" models ran 16x6 alloys with 215/80r16 tyres. They were about 1999 models.
