How to choose the best wheels for your FJ Cruiser?
Choosing wheels can be tricky, especially if you lack the technical knowledge necessary for a good purchase decision. Nothing hurts more than spending hundreds of your hard earned bucks only to realize that the wheels do not fit your vehicle’s specific bolt pattern or the width of the rim is too much for the space inside the wheels well. The Car Factor is here to solve exactly these problems. Keep these few things in mind when purchasing wheels for you FJ Cruiser and you are good to go.
1. Bolt pattern:
The bolt pattern for all FJ Cruiser models is 5×139.7. This is all you need to keep in mind when purchasing wheels. We have taken special care while selecting the above options for you.
2. Rim width and offset
The stock FJ Cruiser comes equipped with an 8 inch wide rim and we would not recommend exceeding that. There is a possibility of the wheels rubbing against the fender. Those with a 3″ or 6″ lift obviously have more room to play with in this regard. Regarding offset, we recommend an offset of 00 mm and for good reasons too. To many people misunderstand the concept of offset and backspacing and we recommend that you do not take these decisions in your hand.
We highly recommend going for well-known premium brands even if that means having to pay a little extra. Cheap wheels tend to bite you in the rear in the long run.
