G'day folks,

Does anyone know where I can get hold of some Toyota 16JJ (6 stud 0- 7.00inch wide) Steel Rims second hand in Brisbane? I'd prefer not to have to go back to Toyota to get them (they charge an arm and a leg!). Some second hand ones would be great - so long as they are not dinged.

I've got the Prado RV - which comes standard with the 16J Rims - which are not wide enough (6.50 inch wide) to fit the next set of tyres that I want (Cooper ST 265/75 R16 LT). My current Cooper ST 225/75 R16's have served brilliantly and are heading for over 100,000Km's of duty - but it's almost time to replace them and I've definitely like to go to the larger size tyres used on the Prado GXL's and up. Will give a little more clearance and is a more common tyre size.

Any help much appreciated. Cheers,
Prado Boy

hey Prado Boy,

I wanted some extra 100 series rims to put on my camper trailer. I contacted the local toyota dealer used cars bit and they put me onto a local tyre service. the Toyota dealer often changes the standard rims for alloy wheels to make the cars look flash so they can flog them quicker. I'm in Sydney and got 3 GXL rims for $10 each. Cost me another $10 to have my tyres put on them. Larfin'

G'day JimB - thanks for your post!

I'll be hitting the phones on Monday (gotta work on the weekend)! Helps a lot to know a bit more about how the motor industry works...

Cheers!

Worth a check with some of the larger tyre places they may have sets left from people who fit mags from new.

Prado Boy,

Have a look around Btrisbane and if you can't find any give me a shout. I have a set in the shed that I was keeping for a spare set but will soon upgrade to ne Prado so with 17"wheels the old ones will not be much use. Freight to Brisbane is not that much and I can organise. Just got to find time to take the tyres off. If you cant find them locally email me dsheridan@cmv.com.auWe have so little time to enjoy our land

I would keep your 16" rims If I was you .The tyres are much cheaper and easy to get. The 16" rims will fit but you need to grind a little off the brake callipers first. Sorry Prado Boy

If you are out Ipswich way you can try Llewellyn Motors at Booval, give them a ring on 3282 2922. I got 1 for $50.

Prado Boy,

235/85R16 will fit onto your 6 inch RV rims, and are the same diameter as the 265/75R16 you are wishing to fit. But I admit the 265/75's look better - especially the Goodyear MTRs.

If you fit the 7 inch rims you will beed to add flares - the best flares are the genuine Toyota 90 series RV flares.
