Limited wheels off - Trail wheels on... Poll & info (tire/wheel weight)

I picked up a set of '14 Trail wheels for my Limited last winter. I'll post a few pics of before and after which hopefully is helpful to someone at some point. I'll add a set of AT tires shortly and will update the thread with a few pics of those as well.
The weight of wheel & original Duelers were 71 lbs... Trails with Duelers came in at 70 lbs...

Poll time for kicks.... ;) Which looks better... personally now that they're on, I don't know that one looks better than the other. But it'll be nice to have more than 3 tire choices now!

It's tough to choose which is nicer. They both look great.

Trail wheels look good. More rubber will give you a more supple on road feel. Unless you go LT tires. I went from 70lbs with stock to 78lbs with stealths and Lt load E tires (wheels were 6lbs lighter each and tires were 14lbs heavier each).

+1 on the Trail wheels.

I actually DISLIKE the look of the large wheels on the Limited, so I think you have the ultimate setup here!

The 4Runner has a rugged off road look, so I find the large wheels out of place, IMO.

Can I ask where u picked up the Trail wheels? Ebay? Dealer? How much?


I am currently strongly considering picking up a new 4Runner, and I really like the way that either the new TRD PRO is set up (those wheels are WAY cool), or the Trail Premium.


Only problem, neither the trail or pro has a 3rd row seat available, which kinda makes it a deal killer for my wife.

Those good looking corn fields are drawing $10k-$15k an acre around here (and none of it's mine btw :/)... nutty!

ride quality

I am interested in this but more on the ride quality as I have the trail wheels but am in the process of deciding between a limited and sr5 upgrade. Is there noticeable difference?

Given identical tires... the 17's have more rubber so they should ride better (more comfy) and these do. The main reason I swapped though was for a better A/T tire selection. Take a peak before you switch out to factory 20's (7" wheel)... you can only get the original Dueler and 2-3 others... none of which I wanted. Best wishes!

79% for the trails... thought it'd be a little closer poll.

Trails look better. I'd like to know where you got them as well.

Those wheels were picked up here... then I sold here as well (after I traded that 4Runner). You should be able to find a set here, Craigslist, Ebay, or over on one of the FJ Cruiser sites. Good luck
