I picked up some new to me 20" rims. I've been using 16" MT Classic II with 35" MT MTZ's. I'm looking to add a BIG brake kit and wanted 18" rims but I got a great deal on the 20's.
I'll be taking the Toyo Open Country MT's from my FJ Cruiser's 20" rims to save a little cash for now. Wear those down and then get some 38" Toyo's to gain back my sidewall flex capabilities. I know a lot of you don't like 20" rims so keep them off your jeep, I love the way they look.


Got the tires all mounted on my 20" rims....


FJ Cruiser with stock rims and tires...
before with my Gear Alloy 914's


after with original stock alloy rims


Got them mounted but not happy with the dull effect of the mostly black look, they need something to POP!



I think I got the look I'm looking for....






Hey look, more stickers.... finally I found a place for my FOX shock stickers. Bought 4 shocks and they only sent me 2 sticker, I got ripped.



I added a background color to make them POP also.

Any more "pop" and it'll look like a Mardi Gras float.

The companies should pay you to display their stickers, or at least give you a discount....after all you are giving them free advertisement.

Just my opinion but 20's dont belong on a jeep...maybe on a ghetto glider.

That's just like, your opinion, man.. haha I agree, but for some reason, his Jeep looks really good with them. I'll say this though, they usually (and by usually, almost never) look good on a Jeep.

why? So you'll change your mind once all the desert racers switch to 20's years from now, Until then your stuck in the past and don't like change???? :roll eyes:

sorry but I'm not one to just go with the flow, do what everyone else does, I like to try a lot of options and experiment with the unusual.

Booty, never really been a fan of 20s myself, but I have always felt that way because I believed that no one who owned 20s on a jeep would wheel it. That is not true here and with the red detailing, I think they look great on your LJ. Throw some more pictures into this thread after you take them out on the rocks and you will have convince me (not that it matters). Keep it up.

If ya must know, I wasn't looking for the 20" rims , I'm looking for a really nice set of 18" rims and 37" or 38" toyo MT's. I couldn't pass up the deal I got on the almost new 20's that you see here. So until I find my 18's I'll probably be flopping between both sets. The MT's for rock crawling and the KD's for mud and street. Unless I find a really great deal on 37" or 38" toyo's for the 20's.
The stock brakes SUCK so I'm putting the large brake kit on, reason for 18's....

Does anyone make a great looking 18" black wheel with a steel beadlock that can take a rock beating and still look good? asking to much here?????

I'm working on some beadlock type rings made of a rock rash resistant material with the color throughout so if they get gashed they will still be the same color. Of course I'm making them RED.
