Tires and Wheels

With the FJ Built up the stock tires and wheels just look wimpy. I decided to give my old tires and wheels a try with out re gearing the Toyota FJ Cruiser.

The wheels are Mickey Thompson Sidebiter mounted with 295/70-17 Hankook Dynapro AT tires. The tires add another 1″+ to the lift and provide a better tire patch when off road.

The wheel and tires complete the look of our new FJ Cruiser.



Tomas has lived in Colorado since age 5. Having grown up on the Western Slope of Colorado lots of time was spent in the Desert Southwest. Tomas' father introduced him to the love of 4 wheeling at an early age in the high mountains around Aspen, Colorado. While an avid Mountain Biker, Tomas and his Family enjoy adventures in the mountains and desert in the remote locations that can only be reached by 4wd. Day hikes are always a must when on the family trips. While enjoying outdoor activities he wants to share his love as a certified 4wd trainer and ski instructor. Tomas also enjoys caving and cave exploration. Tomas currently resides in Colorado Springs.

    They look great! Have you noticed any difference in mileage or performance with the new tires and wheels without the diff regears?

      I have not checked the mileage. I can feel that the low end is gone when I start from a full stop. I do need the ge-gear.

    Serious trail runners will have steel wheels. Stronger then alloy, a little heaver then alloy, but a whole lot cheaper to replace if damaged.
