5th Gen With 3″ Spacer Kit Fuel 20″ Wheels & KO2 Tires
Fuel 20″ Vapor Wheels Wrapped with KO2 (275/55R20) Tires – 5th Gen 4Runner
We finally introduce the second 4Runner in the family’s new look. Our 2016 SR5 with Fuel 20″ Vapor Wheels wrapped with KO2 275/55R20 Tires. This is my girls 4Runner and she picked everything out. I had no influence in her decision. I think she made some pretty good choices and it turned out pretty nice.
At first, I thought the wheels were a little too “BRO” but after looking at it a bit more, I think they are looking pretty good. There are plenty of options out there for 5th Gen 4Runner Wheels and while this is nowhere close to what I would have chosen, they look pretty good.
She wanted 20″ wheels, so there were not too many options for offset. The offset on these wheels is a little too positive in my opinion. Also, the weight is crazy on these wheels (47 Pounds!). After everything is said and done, this 4Runner is going to be a street princess. My girl is using the 4Runner as a daily driver and will not be taking it off-road. So, with that being said, I think these wheel specs should suffice given her routine driving habits.
Next up on her mod list is a C4 Fab front bumper and an AFE CAI. We will see what happens next!

Some Close-Ups on the Fuel Vapors & KO2’s
After looking at this set-up in detail, they do go together quite nice. The aggressive KO2’s complement the Vapor wheels quite nice.
Is there any rubbing when turning?
Can I get the parts # for the leveling kit on the white 4Runner with the 20” wheel?
That was the Pro Comp Leveling Kit.
Great looking wheels and tires. Awesome write-ups.
Brenan, i found that article this morning and am actually reading it now. Thanks a bunch. This is the type of information i have been looking for.
New to the lifting and tires for 2016 4runner trail. i am trying to learn what i need to put or do for some aftermarket wheels and KO2. what is the difference between a leveling and lift kit? which is more advisable to go with? I am still going to keep 17″ wheels but i want bigger wider tires. If i go 17″x9″ wheel, will i need a leveling kit or a full lift kit. I been reading and researching and most suggest a Bilstien 5100….
Martin, we wrote a pretty detailed post on the difference between lifts, suspensions, and leveling kits here. It is typically more advisable to install a suspension over a leveling kit. Also, the Bilstein 5100 is a rear shock. The Bilstein 6112 is the front coilover. Follow that link and check out the details on that page for a better understanding of suspensions and leveling kits.
I have a 2016 Limited that I am going to put a Daystar 2.5 X 1.5 leveling kit on – (XREAS Suspension) I have done a lot of research on kits for XREAS and this one will work from what I have found in the Forums with XREAS.
The actual lift in the front is 2.5″ measured using the Daystar, from what everyone is saying –
2 questions —
1. Will this give me enough lift for clearance of the KOA tires and the fuel vapor wheels -listed below?
275/55R20 KO’s and the 20 X 9 Fuel Vapor wheels – (They offer these in 1mm, 20mm and a 35 mm offsets.)
2. Which wheel would you chose for looks and performance- the 1mm, 20mm or the 35 mm
BTW great info on this package —
1. What is the biggest size wheel i can get that will fit the OEM tires (getting new ones eventually) without lifting or leveling?
2. Would I be able to get 18″ wheels and still use the OEM tires without lifting or leveling?
3. What would be the biggest tires you can put on the 18″ wheels (assuming it would work) without lifting or leveling and causing no rubbing?
You might want to start here: Biggest Tires on 4Runner without lift or level?
1. Your OEM tires are 17″ so you can fit 17″ wheels.
2. To run 18″ wheels, you need a tire that will fit 1″ wheels (maybe 275/65/18)
3. The biggest I would go would be a 32″ tire without lifting or leveling the 4Runner. But, I would strongly encourage you to level the front only if you are going any bigger than stock.
So with a 35 offset the tire and wheels are basically flush with the fendors or so they stick out a little? If i wanted it to stick out a little more i would need a lower numbered offset for the rims, say a 20 offset?
Yeah, the more negative offset you have, the more the wheels stick out. If you can get a -20 offset, that would be nice. If you have a positive offset, that pushes the wheel further in the wheel well and will make the wheel more flush with the actual tire. The example on this page has more a positive offset, which I am not a huge fan of but my girl likes it. So, it is what it is. I have a -6 offset on the Anza Wheels with Toyo Tires. If they made a -15+ offset, I would have gone with those. But, the -6 offset is all that wheel had in a 17″ wheel.
Can 20″Fuel vapor wheels and BFG KO2’s be installed without the 3″ spacer kit?
I have the 2015 limited edition with 20″ stocks.
You can install the 20″ fuel wheels and the KO2’s no problem on a limited 4Runner without a 3″ leveling kit.
What is important to note is the actual tire size you will be wrapping around the 20″ wheels. On this SR5 4Runner, we have 275/55R20 (Basically a 32″ tire). For your example with the limited 4Runner, no leveling kit, you probably want to stay at 30-31″ but 32″ will fit (I would think). I would go with a 265/55R20 (32″ tire but a little less wide compared to the 275/55R20). In any case, always call your tire shop and see what they think first. Les Schwab and Big-O-Tires are pretty good about giving you on the spot advice for what will fit your Limited 4Runner. Good Luck!!
