I don't know why anyone would want to go to 35s. Rolling Eyes

I think your wheels will be fine. Mine weren't beat up on the outer rim, mainly on the spokes that protrude out. Your wheel spokes are inset. They will get scratched, but they won't look as beat up as mine. By the way I put a fresh coat of spray paint on my gouges.

Did you take before/after clearance measurements?

No before and after. Sorry.

In terms of weight I gained a few pounds, which is pretty disappointing.


In terms of the 4runner, the wheel and tire combo saved me about 16lbs of unsprung weight. Each wheel/tire weighed 4lbs less. Which is really less than I expected, but whatever

The 4runner rocks the 255's pretty darn well!

I agree. That 1st pic makes your 4runner look real tough and not silly hillbilly with big wheely.

I am slowly accumulating more shots of the wheels

Today was also the first day I took this set of tires off road...I must say I am impressed. In the loose sand I found they definitely didn't float like the 285's. They immediately started digging, but still provided tons of traction. In the mud they were awesome. Didn't get on any rocks or anything which is my normal terrain though.

I bet you it went on a lot easier than my piece of crap back bumper. Looks good Casey. Now there is more room for your hoarding.

LOL....yea it went on great, besides the fact that it is crazy heavy. That combo, including wheel/tire, weighs a bit over 200#

I bet. It looks really heavy. However it gives you some rooms for other stuff. You better light up that license plate though.
