Wheels

Does anyone know where in the UK I can get steel wheels that will take a 7.50x16 tyre for my landcruiser HJ60 (6studs) I don't want 8 spokes. looking more toward something like a steel modular look.

Hi,
It seemed crazy, but when I was looking for my 60, I didn't find anything besides 8 spokes or genuine Toyota......I certainly didn't have the cash for the latter.
In fairness, they were a bit less than expected from Toyota, but not cheap either (I forget how much now).
I always thought I must be missing something, but ended up with black 8 spokes from Paddock.

If you do find other options, please let us know
Sam

Might be worth giving these people a call:

4x4 Tyres :: The UK's Ultimate 4x4 Tyre Website ::

Don't know if they have the size you're after but they have a big range.

Nissan Patrol's use the same 6 stud pattern & a quick goole search bought up a thread on ExplorOz.
It looks like the offset is slightly different, but possibly not by much. Also, the hub centre hole will be larger on the Nissan, making it possible for you to fit Nissan wheels but not possible for them to fit Toyotas.

Hope this is some help, but I would check the offsets carefully

nice one chaps, thanks Mr Paul, good link. I dropped them an email, they don't have anything specifically for a 60 but they do for an 80. they think they might fit but the offset may push the wheels outside the arches, which isn't too much of a drama. anyone experience of trying 80 wheels on a 60?

I tried the wheels from a nissan and they didn't fit, oh sorry, you said patrol, the ones I tried were from a micra
