Gday all, have a 2004 79 series ute HDJ79, am just wondering if the wheels would fit on a 2008 VDJ78 troopy? Am selling the ute and looking to buy the troopy, & considering keeping the alloys for the troopy. I cant compare them as one vehicle is interstate.

Cheers

Craig,

Just checked ToyoDIY, and using steel wheels as a guide, part # for 79 series is: 42610-60330, and part # for VDJ78: 42610-60320.

I'd be inclined to say that they would fit, as don't think the offset is different....then again, I'm just guessing.

Gday Bob,
I think you'll find the only difference between those two part numbers is the colour of the wheel. The ..030 number is available on both the HDJ and VDJ models.
Cheers

No worries, Phil. Was hoping you'd be along shortly to confirm my thoughts.

They have a couple of VDJ utes at Brighton now, as well as the old turbo that I used to drive, and while I haven't had the "pleasure" of changing any of their tyres, thought that they would be intechangeable.

They are identical in all respects.
If your HDJ79 has the RV factory alloys, then make sure the alloy wheel nuts stay with the mags.
Every other wheel (both steel and alloy) that fits on a 78/79series takes the standard tapered wheel nuts.

On the troopie, you will most likely need to add front and rear flares.

Thanks guys, was pretty sure they would fit straight on, and the troopy is flared with 265/75 16's on already. With the news the 70's are being phased out, I'll be unbolting everything I can for the troopy set up. It will be a long term keeper ( and worth heaps in years to come!!!)
