With the evolution of my 4runner, the desire to have the ability to run lower psi tires on the trails meant that I would need beadlocked wheels. Since I did not find any beadlocked wheels that fit my taste, I went in search for a factory Toyota tire that I could beadlock. I knew that OMF Performance
has the skills to beadlock virtually any wheels, I researched into the best factory wheel that fit my 4runner. I found a set of 2005 Toyota Tundra 16" wheels that I really liked and went forward with the headlocking process. The finished result was spectacular. Testing it on the trails also proved that the beadlock wheels were a hit. The optional "rock domes" also help to protect the mounting hardware as well as provide additional traction under certain conditions. I've personally tested it on the rocks and they work flawlessly.
The 2005 Toyota Tundra factory tires feature a 16x7 specification but I had OMF
make the wheels 16x8 to better accomodate for the Goodyear Wranger MT/R 315/75/16
tires that would be mounted in place.
A separate set of 285/75/16 tires are mounted to my American Racing AR-23 Wheels (16x8 0 Offset 4.5 Backspacing)
