TRD Pro Vs. TRD Off-Road Vs. SR5 Vs. Limited: Factory Wheel Options For the 5th Gen 4Runner

Wheels can make or break the look of your 4Runner, and it can be difficult to know where to start. With that in mind, OEM Wheels are a great choice. Since these wheels are made by Toyota, they pair extremely well with the vehicle. They are lightweight, durable and they are not overly expensive in comparison to other wheels on the market.

Each model 4Runner has a different wheel. For example, the TRD Pro and the TRD Off-Road have two completely different wheel styles; both with different widths, spoke designs, etc. Additionally, Toyota offers the TRD Rock Warrior forged wheel which was initially released for the FJ. In any case, we wanted to take a look at all the options you can get from Toyota when it comes to OEM wheels.

So what are all the options you have when it comes to factory Toyota wheels?

SR5 Wheels

Highway Tires on 4Runner

SR5 is the stock wheel for the 4Runner. It is the cheapest wheel by far at around $150 a wheel.

I currently have these wheels because I just got my SR5 and they look fine with the silver roof rack and chrome emblems. However, as I begin to add blackout emblems, black nerf bars, black roof racks, the wheels just start to look more and more out of place. If you plan to keep the chrome running boards and roof rack, then your 4Runner will look just fine with these wheels. They are high-quality wheels that will get the job done day-in and day-out. Unlike other car brands, Toyota still designs their lowest trim wheels to have its own look.

The end of each spoke branches out a little creating a diamond-like shape in between the spokes. There are also ridges creating depth in the wheels. All of these tiny details allow for a low costing wheel to have a high-end look.

TRD Offroad Premium Wheels

TRD Off-Road Premium Wheels

If you are looking for something to match your chrome trim, then these wheels might be for you.

There is nothing wrong with the chrome and silver look, it can definitely create a flashy and luxurious look for your 4Runner. Chrome running boards, emblems, and roof racks all enhance the way the wheel looks on the 4Runner.

Offroad premium wheels are a unique set of aluminum, 7-spoke wheels. They come in two colors: black or machined. The spokes almost look like a gear with the way the spokes look to be cut off right before they reach the edge of the wheel. I have never seen a wheel that looks like this anywhere else so a rare design is certainly what you get with the offroad premium wheels.

The best place to find a set of these is going to be Vilmont Market, eBay, Craiglist, Etc.

TRD Pro Wheels Matte Black (2021+)

Adding to the 4Runner TRD Pro makeover, the 2021 model brings in new black TRD alloy flow form wheels wrapped in Nitto Terra Grappler tires. Stronger and more rigid than the last, these wheels have taken DNA cues from the current style to keep the family look while offering a more aggressive spoke design and deeper dish.

TRD Pro Wheels Matte Black (2015-2020+)

These custom Toyota wheels are the most popular of the OEM selection.

If you are planning to blackout your 4Runner with emblems, new running boards, etc, you don’t want your wheels holding back the overall style of your 4Runner. You want your wheels to improve the look if not be the centerpiece of your vehicle. Look, no further than the TRD Pro Matte Black wheels!

The TRD Pro’s look like nothing else on the market. The slightly drawn back dish creates depth and the red TRD center cap pops against all the black. These wheels allow you to maintain the OEM feel while still having the offroad look which is very hard to do.

For those looking for an offroad wheel, they might be skeptical of sticking to an OEM wheel, but the Pro’s are designed with the best weight, offset and brake clearance in mind. All TRD Wheels go through a thorough ride, handling, and strength tests to meet Toyota Racing Developments standards. Reassuring any driver of the Pro’s quality and performance in any situation.

TRD Pro Wheels Matte Grey

TRD Pro Wheels Matte Grey

Don’t want all black but you like the style of the TRD Pros? Then the Matte Grey TRD Pro Wheels are for you.

Unlike some of the other wheels in this article, the Matte Grey wheels are unique in that they can work with multiple styles. They work well with OEM Chrome along with aftermarket blackout emblem kits as well. The silver and black contrasts well with many colors, allowing the style of the wheel to be compatible with most 4Runner builds.

These TRD Pro’s have the same level of durability and efficiency as the Matte Black ones previously mentioned.

  • Matte Grey TRD Pro Wheels: Check Price
  • Factory OEM
  • Material: Aluminum

TRD Pro Wheels Bronze

Bronze TRD Pro Wheels 5th Gen 4Runner

Bronze TRD Wheels are a really flashy set of wheels! They add some serious heat to the overall build of your 4Runner.

In my opinion, these wheels look best on a white or blue 4Runner. You also should not have chrome accents if you plan on purchasing these wheels, it just causes too much to be going on at one time. They could work with other builds this is just what I think allows the look of the wheels to thrive the most.

Like both of the other TRD Pro wheels, the bronze wheels still provide the high offroad capabilities that someone who hits the trails might need. It is hard to find such unique, offroad capable wheels at such a good price.

Specifications:

  • Bronze TRD Pro Wheels: Check Price
  • Factory OEM
  • Material: Aluminum
  • Style: 6 Spoke
  • Finish: Flat Bronze
  • Dimensions: 17-inch x 7 inch
  • Diameter: 17-inch
  • Width: 7 inch
  • Number of Lugs: 6
  • Bolt Pattern: 139.7 mm
  • Offset: +4 mm
  • Backspace: 4.5″
  • Weight 25lbs

Limited Wheels

Limited 4Runner Wheels

Limited wheels give the 4Runner a very luxurious look. As pictured above, these wheels look killer on a Limited trim level 4Runner.

The Limited wheels are a match made in heaven for the chrome trim on the 4Runner, especially the Limiteds.

These wheels are the largest of the OEM selection coming in at 2o-inches. So, if you plan on purchasing these wheels, you should also take into account the purchase of a new set of tires. Limited wheels are not suited for off-road conditions; these wheels should be used for mall crawling only.

Specifications:

  • Factory OEM
  • Material: Aluminum
  • Finish: Machined with Black
  • Dimensions: 20-inch x 7 inch
  • Diameter: 20 inch
  • Width:  7 inch
  • Syle: 6 Spoke
  • Number of Lugs:6
  • Bolt Pattern: 139.7 mm
  • Make and Model: Toyota 4Runner
  • Part Numbers: 4261135550; 4261135440; 4261135450

TRD Forged Wheels

TRD Forged Wheels with Milestar Patagonia M/T Superior Traction Off-Road Tires Review For the 5th Gen 4Runner

Pictured: @gen5t4r_eric

TRD Rock Warrior Forged wheels are the most off-road capable wheels out of all OEM wheels mentioned. Forged wheels are created when a mixture of metals is put under intense heat and pressure to create the final shape of the wheel. By forging the wheels, the entirety of the wheel is the strongest it can be – and also incredibly lightweight compared to cast wheels. Basically, this wheel will take just about anything you throw at it.

This wheel looks the part of the offroad wheel as well. With the Faux Beadlock ring, this wheel looks just like other Beadlock wheels on the market without costing as much. It won’t provide true capability like a traditional Beadlock, though.

Specifications:

  • Factory OEM
  • Material: Alloy
  • Finish: Gunmetal Grey
  • Dimensions: 17-inch by 7.5 inch
  • Diameter: 17-inch
  • Width: 7.5 inch
  • Style: 6 Spoke
  • Back Space: 4.5″
  • Offset: +10mm
  • Number of Lugs: 6
  • Bolt Pattern: 139.7 mm
  • Make and Model: Toyota 4Runner
  • Beadlock Styling and Machined Outer Lip
  • Part Number: 45-35010
  • Weight: 23.5lbs

Final Thoughts

The most important part of buying wheels is knowing what overall build you have in mind.

If you are going to keep the chrome and stick to daily driving, you should go with the Limited or Offroad Premium Wheels. On the other hand, if you plan to blackout your 4Runner and go offroading here and there you should consider the TRD Pro’s or the TRD Forged Wheels.

In the end, it is up to you to determine what best fits you and your 4Runner

Are there actually factory bronze trd pro wheels?. I’ve never seen them, however FN makes a knock off in bronze. Your photo for that one looks photoshopped.

Your picture for the TRD Pros is the Gunmetal black, and the link is for the matte grey TRDs. the difference being significant. The Gunmetals have the black TRD lettering compared the goofy ass red color

Nice article!

Only thing is you didn’t put – or + on your offset information 🙂

And weights would be a great bit of information as well!

Kind regards
