learned a hard lesson today

I have been running 17 inch fj wheels on my 06 limited. I came across a set of the fj BBS wheels that were a port option in the southeast and snatched them up a couple months ago.

Thought i would finally get them mounted up this weekend with some new rubber so i rolled down to discount and dropped a cool 1k on some 285 cooper atps.

Got home and went to mount them up and they will not clear my damn brake calipers. I need to replace them anyway so i ground on one quite a bit and nada, no way they are going on there.

So now i am either going to be buying new wheels, down sizing the brakes, or sticking them on the wifes fj.

Man, i was so pumped to get those wheels on.

So make sure you do a test fit on 17 inch wheels on you limited. In theory they should have gone right on since i am already using 17 inch fj wheels...or so i thought.

Try wheel spacers.


Read through this. This guy used wheel spacers to clear 15'' wheels on his SR5

A spacer will fix this. Make sure you get high quality Hub Centric spacers and it will be safe.
