Hiya all,

Are the 6 stud wheels on a GXL 2004 Prado compatible with a current model 4WD Hilux.

Saw a lux in a carpark today and it had 6 studders on where I have previously seen most with 5 stud wheels.

A Hilux may be in our future to complement the Wagon and it would be nice to be able to swap wheel/tyre sets. I currently have 3 sets for the Prado including ATR and MTR tread types.

Prado is 17inch and lux is probably 16 but if I can use the Prado wheels on the lux I can take advantage of an offroad set and keep the Lux originals as on-roaders or AT's.

Cheers
Muddy

4WD Hilux have 6 stud
2WD Hilux have 5 stud

You'd have to check the offset. I think it's different.

Thanks for that. I am guessing that the offset will be where my answer lies.

Cheers

Thanks David, That is probably pretty much what I wanted to know.

Cheers

Hi,
Prado wheels go UP to the Hilux with no binding. Hilux wheels are 16s and rub on the brake caliper. Some guys grind the edge off as it is apparently only a thick cast with no critical bits in it. BUT not me. The 16 tires are cheaper so tempting for a Prado owner to go down a size.
My wrecker let me try on some wheels in his yard as he wanted to know what the go was too. You may have a friend there too. Worth the time to find out for yourself.
Toyota mucked up big time with this one, especially going to 17 tires which are expensive, for no good reason.
Cheers
Bill

Yes Toyota really shot themselves in the foot when they changed the Cruisers to 5 stud from six stud. Left hundreds of operators around here out on a limb as now their trailers, when they have a flat out in the sticks may or may not now have a spare on the pull rig with the needed stud pattern. As this is a mining area, smart operators know not to leave to many unlocked spares around or they won't be. Mitre 11 is alive and healthy.

Hi Muddy I run Prado rims on my lux but if you go for a manual make sure you don't go to large on the rolling diameter as the clutch in the lux is not as sturdy as could be.
