5th Gen 4Runner Wheel Buyers Guide and Overview on Wheel Specs

We are going to break down a few things in this one. We are going to look at the specs of the TRD wheels, SR5 wheels, and Limited wheels. We are also going to break down a basic overview of bore size, offset, backspace, wheel weight, tires, and most of the basics when shopping for wheels.

We will also look at different options for aftermarket 5th Gen 4runner wheels.

Shopping for Wheels

  • Bolt Pattern (5th Gen = 6×139.7mm(5.5″) or 6×5.5)
  • Wheel Bore (5th Gen = 106mm – the size of the center hole on your wheel)
  • Offset (-offset pushes the wheel out. +offset pushes wheel into the wheel well)
  • Backspace (Similar to offset – the space between the center tire and inside wheel)
  • Rating (Weight rating wheels were designed for)
  • Weight (lb)
  • Lug Type (tapered “conical” and radiused)
  • LipSize (in)

5th Gen Hub Bore: 106.6mm

TreadWright Guard Dog M/T Tires Review

The hub bore is the large center hole machined into the wheel and mounts onto the hub of the wheel. Just because our bore is 106mm does not mean that aftermarket wheels with other sizes won’t fit. Aftermarket wheels with a bore of 108mm, for example, will fit a 106mm bore. Even wheels with a larger bore (110mm) will fit your hubs 106mm bore. Then comes hub centric and lug centric.

  • Hub centric spacers: Do you need hub centric spacers to make up the difference? Yes and no. Some say yes and some say no and it usually depends on the size of the bore on your intended wheel.
  • Lug centric: There are also lug centric wheels, which are most common on aftermarket wheels. Lug centric wheels are centered by the lug. If you have wheels that are lug centric, you often do not need hub centric spacers. It is important to note that you should always install lug centric wheels off the ground (on jack stands) where the wheel can center on its own.

The best thing to do is bring this up to your tire/wheel shop and hopefully, they will give you a good understanding. Also, it is not usually recommended to have hub centric and lug centric wheels as this will create unnecessary static loads on your wheel studs, however, some will argue the point.

Offset and Backspace

Relations Race Wheels (RR5-S) Gunmetal on MGM 4Runner

Low offset (measured by negative) pulls the wheel spokes into the wheel well creating more dish on the actual wheel. A negative offset will push your wheel out of the well. High offset (measured by positive) pushes the wheel spokes out towards the edge of the wheel creating no dish. A positive offset will pull your wheel into the well.

Backspace is the space between the inside edge of the wheel to the mounting surface. Less backspace pushes the wheel out of the wheel well. More backspace pulls your wheel into the well. In the 4Runner world, we usually look for a backspace of 5″ or less.

I bought a 17″ wheel with a negative offset (-6), but you can go as far as you want -10, -12. With -offset, this pushes the wheel out of the wheel well more, similar to wheel spacers.

Negative offset combined with less backspace provides a better look (in my opinion – a common goal is to push the wheel out). The lower the offset and the smaller the backspace, the further your wheels will stick out of your wheel well. Have you ever seen an F250 with wheels that stick out a foot past the body? Yeah, that is a lot of -offset and likely a small backspace.

Good visual article for understanding offset and backspace

TRD Wheels – Features and Benefits?

TRD SEMA & Beadlock - 4Runner Wheels

TRD SEMA and Beadlock wheels are designed for perfect braking, maximum stability on corners, excellent heat dissipation, all with being lightweight which allows for better performance. When you choose TRD Pro wheels, you are getting a master design and a commitment to quality that goes far beyond appearance.

5th Gen 4Runner TRD Wheel Options

Shot Cred: @Dumbo_T4R

TRD looks at all the design criteria for each vehicle that they design wheels for, and then they use state-of-the-art CAD design in order to design and manufacture the optimal wheel for that car/truck. In designing TRD wheels, they take into account the weight, offset, backspace, and even brakes to make sure that the wheel fits, performs reliably, and has the perfect finish. You really can’t go wrong with TRD wheels, these wheels fit, function and perform absolutely perfect for your body on frame SUV.

Weight Factors

Weight is always a big factor when looking into wheels. The TRD 17″ SEMA only weighs 25lbs, that’s pretty light. Even lighter is the 16″ Beadlock TRD wheels weighing in at 23.5lbs.

There are other aftermarket wheels that come in at 35+ pounds and some as high as 40 pounds. You want to stay away from anything over 30 pounds in my opinion. Weight is always a factor you should consider when it comes to wheels.

Tires and Wheels Together (Big Decision)

You want to consider which tire you are going to run alongside your chosen wheel. With the TRD 17″ SEMA wheel and the 16″ Beadlock style TRD wheels, you have different options for tires. Let’s take the TRD 17″ SEMA wheel for example and see what tire options we have. The larger in diameter the wheel gets, the more adjustments and lift you will need to make.

A common tire size for many aftermarket 17″ wheels is a large 32″ tire (285/70/17 – 32.71″). See the list below on whether or not this wheel will rub.

TRD 17″ SEMA Wheel/Tire Options

  • 265/70/17 (Stock) (7-9″ Space Needed) – Won’t Rub
  • 255/75/17 (6.5-8.5″ Space Needed) – Won’t Rub
  • 270/70/17 (7-8.5″ Space Needed) – Won’t Rub
  • 285/70/17 (7.5-9″ Space Needed) – Questionable (Body Mount Chop May be Needed)
  • 305/65/17 (8.5-11″ Space Needed) – Will Rub – Adjustments/Mods Needed
  • 255/80/17 (6.5-8.5″ Space Needed) – Will Rub – Adjustments/Mods Needed
  • 305/70/17 (8-9.5″ Space Needed) – Will Rub – Adjustments/Mods Needed
  • 285/75/17 (7.5-9.5″ Space Needed) – Will Rub – Adjustments/Mods Needed

Best Aftermarket Wheel Options

5th Gen 4Runner Wheel Guide 2019

Take a look at the graphic of our favorite options for 5th Gen 4Runner wheels.

This is only my choice for what I would choose, and not the “best” options out there. Do your research and find what wheel fits your style best.

We had a set of ATX wheels on my Trail Edition. We replaced the ATX wheels due to an oxidation issue, so keep that in mind if you are looking into ATX wheels.

My Top pick for Aftermarket 4Runner Wheels

Deciding on the right set of wheels is important

The wheels you have on your 4Runner can make or break the appearance.

This is the hub (no pun intended) of your vehicles character. If you go to “BRO”, you might have some serious regrets. When we say BRO, we mean straight chrome and a 7″ deep dish wheel. At the same time, if you get the most basic wheels out there, that everyone has, what will be different about your 4Runner?

Wheel Options for 5th Gen 4Runner (6×139.7mm(5.5″) or 6×5.5 Bolt Pattern)

Spidertrax Wheel Spacers 5th Gen 4Runner

It is important to note our bolt pattern; 6×139.7mm (5.5″) or 6×5.5. You can’t just throw whatever wheel you think looks good on your 4Runner and call it a day. Different wheels are designed to fit different off-road vehicles per multiple specs.

When looking for a 5th Generation 4Runner wheel, you aren’t just looking at the actual wheel. You are looking at a handful of criteria. You need to start off by finding a wheel with our bolt pattern (that’s where I start).

Again, when shopping for wheels start here

  • Bolt Pattern (5th Gen = 6×139.7mm(5.5″) or 6×5.5)
  • Wheel Bore (5th Gen = 106mm – the size of the center hole on your wheel)
  • Offset (-offset pushes the wheel out. +offset pushes wheel into the wheel well)
  • Backspace (Similar to offset – the space between the center tire and inside wheel)
  • Rating (Weight rating wheels were designed for)
  • Weight (lb)
  • Lug Type (tapered “conical” and radiused)
  • LipSize (in)

Where to start?

  1. Bolt Pattern?
  2. Hub Centric or Lug Centric?
  3. What offset options does the wheel have?
  4. What backspace options does the wheel have?
  5. How much does it weigh?

I would start with bolt pattern, then move to wheel bore (are they hub centric or lug centric?) and then move to offset, and then backspace. For the 5th Gen 4Runner, there are a few aftermarket manufacturers of lug centric wheels (Stealth Custom Series, FN Wheels, TRD wheels, and other manufacturers). With that being said, it doesn’t much matter if you buy a set of wheels that are lug centric because that is how the lugs nuts center the wheel.

There are many different ways to make wheels. There are pros and cons to each type of wheel.  Whether you are looking at steel wheels or alloy wheels, you want to note the difference and do your research.

Steel Wheels

Steel wheels are the wheels that come on most cars, however, the stock wheels on the 5th gen are aluminum. Steel is inexpensive to produce and they are very sturdy, which makes them the obvious choice for stock accessories on most cars. They aren’t really optimized for performance, but they perform well enough that most car owners wouldn’t really care.

Many people run steelies (steel wheels) and have no problems at all. They actually prefer steelies to allow wheels because it gives them more weight on sleet, snow, and ice. Which may very well be true, but I would personally have a lighter TRD wheel or many of the aftermarket brands mentioned above in the graphic.

Aluminum Alloy Wheels

5th Gen 4Runner Borla Exhaust

Pictured above is a set of 20″ Fuel Vapor wheels on my girls 2016 5th Gen SR5 4Runner. You can read more about this wheel and tire set up here: Fuel Vapor Wheels & KO2 Tires. She wanted 20″ wheels so she got 20″ wheels. I recommended 17″ wheels, but she didn’t listen.

Aluminum alloy wheels are lightweight, they dissipate heat better, and they perform better during high-load cornering maneuvers. When you’re looking at performance, aluminum alloy wheels are often a better choice than steel wheels.

You can also get three kinds of alloy wheels: forged, cast, and billet.

Forged and cast wheels are both aluminum. The actual method for producing/ manufacturing these wheels is a little different.

Forged aluminum alloy wheels are stronger and in most cases offer a lower weight than cast alloy wheels. At the end of the day, there is not a huge difference between the two but some will argue the point.

Both forged and cast manufactured wheels are very similar and get the same job done.

The product specs from the press room for my 2016 states that the stock wheels are 7 inches wide, not 7.5 inches wide. Out of curiosity, how did you come about this information?

Getting ready to do a Bilstein 6112/5160 lift (a little less than 3″) on my 2019 limited nightshade. I plan to swap out the 18-in alloy wheels for some 17-in wheels and bigger tires.
Looking to do light to medium technical off-roading (Forest service roads and fire trails) but no serious Boulder crawling also looking for excellent performance on snow covered roads in lake Tahoe.

I like method racing wheels but I’m also considering just going with TRD SEMA’S. WHAT WOULD YOU ALL PUT ON THERE AND WHAT KIND OF TIRES? TOYO AT III’s?

Hi all!
I have an old set of Alcoa aluminum rims that came off my old 90 Toyota 4×4 truck. Size is 15x12x6.5. I was wondering if they can fit on a 2018 5th gen Toyota 4Runner that’s running on stock size wheels (17’s).
If I put the 15×12’s on, is there going to be enough clearance for the brake calipers?
Thanks.

5th Gen 4Runners cannot have any smaller than a 17″ wheel installed. The calipers and rotors are in the way of going any smaller. You won’t be able to use 15s or 16s on your 4Runner.

I’m buying 2020 4Runner TRD Off Road Premium & need really good deep snow tires as I’ll be at 12,000 ft. in the CO Rockies. I’m planning on getting the Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 SUV snow tire & am either getting winter wheels or changing tires for the season. Any suggestions/ recommendations? Steel vs alloy, brand, just change tires? I’m a newbie at this.

I’ve lived in the mountains of colorado for the last decade. Just get some blizzaks and change them out seasonally, that’s what we all do up here. The nokians are great tires, but they are very soft rubber that wears out quicker. You’ll be surprised in fall/spring how quickly the driving conditions change from blizzard to warm weather. The blizzaks are a little more robust for these conditions.

I have a 2019 Limited and am looking to install Mayhem Voyager in 17×8.5, et0, BS4.8 / BFG KO2 275/70/17 with factory suspension (no lift).

I will likely have to do the fender liner mod and maybe remove mudflaps.

I would get the -12mm offset for the more aggressive stance. The negative offset pushes your wheels out a little more and will look nice 👍🏽

even with the 3inch lift you will still have to do a body mount chop if you go with an aggressive offset.

Have a 2010 trail. Want to replace the original wheels with some 2019 4Runner wheels 75154.
Original wheels are 17×7, 4.5” backspace, with +15 offset. New wheels are 17×7.5, 4.5” backspace, with +12 offset. Looking at the numbers I don’t see an issue, but all websites only show these as a match for 2014 and newer 4runners. Will these work on my 2010 trail? I don’t want to modify or cut on the body.

I have a 2020 4Runner, SR5 with stock wheels. I put on RRW 17″ and Falken Wild Peak Tires (265/70/17)… So basically NO change in tires or wheels. I get rub when I lock my wheel to either side. (I am new to this stuff) Is there a way to remedy this? I got a little lost in the narrative up above, but I feel perhaps I need some spacing to offset the rub, but I have no way of knowing as I am still learning.

The wheels and tires sound well within tolerances.
You didn’t mention the backspace /offset of the wheels, or what it is rubbing, or how much.
my concern would be that you have too little backspace(wrong wheels?) , and this would also cause excess wheel bearing wear.
If the rubbing is minor and on the liners then some cutting should fix it.

HI Clive, thanks for the response. I don’t know much about offset, but from my understanding, my wheels are not offset any, or shouldn’t be. I just wanted black rims with a more rugged tire. The rubbing does appear to be just the plastic mud flap and not the actual car body. The rub is minor, but sounds awful as the plastic shudders and most likely sounds worse than it is. But it just seems that it shouldn’t be rubbing if the wheels and tires are the same size as stock. That’s why I started to read this article about… Read more »

yes, your offset is now an inch, and probably rubbing the outer liner..
your options are:
1. cut/adjust the liner/body, (can you see the wear/rub point?)
2. >=2″ lift/level the f/e ($100 to thousands + labor – see eibach kit)
3. reduce the offset (change wheels.

The tires probably wont rub (I have 275 70 17 and they don’t) but, as you are going almost 1″ further out from the vehicle, without lift your front tires will probably impact the body wheel arch when you compress the suspension due a bump in the road, especially when turning at the same time. The stock +15mm means the wheel is ‘inside’ the body arch

    2018 ORP. I opted for the Method MR305 wheels in bronze with black after-market lug nuts. The wheels are 17X8.5 6X5.5 with a 0mm offset/4.5 backspace. Although the hub bore is 106.5, they are considered lug-centric wheels as far as I know. The factory lug nuts had a flat seat and a narrow diameter shaft that engaged quite a bit of the stud. The new lug nuts are a simple tapered seat and do not engage anywhere near as much thread. This concerns me. Am I being paranoid?

    Darrell, rule of thumb is to to have as much engagement as the diameter of the stud. In this case, you need 12mm of engagement. You should run an E.T. Acorn lug nut (E.T. – Extended Thread). This will give you the added thread engagement you need to be safe. I run RHI Automotive black chrome lugs on mine (2 year warranty on lugs too!)

    This is very helpful. But what about the tpms? Can we keep the oem and transfer them to the new wheels, or do we need a new set for the new wheels? And what about programming them? I will be changing wheels soon and wanna cover all the bases before going to the shop.

    Ryan, as long as your wheel is TPMS compatible, you should have no issues transferring your factory sensors to your new wheels. However, considering the labor you’ll possibly pay at a tire shop to break own factory wheels, remove sensors, replace into new wheels and likely charge you labor and parts for a rebuild kit will be cost-prohibitive. You’d likely be better to get a quality aftermarket sensor and install to the wheels. I personally run MAX Sensor TPMS sensors, which are a perfect replacement for factory and program exactly the same as an OEM sensor.

    Just wanted to say thank you for compiling this info. Super helpful! I’m having a heck of a time finding wheel options. I’m going white so it’s not easy lol.
