New Rims Method Standards

Post by rkgzx9leftcoast » Mon Sep 11, 2017 2:53 pm

I put some new rims on my PW 2016 , I should Probably have a Build Thread, but havnt started one yet. Anyway, in case anyone wants to see what 17In Method Standards look like. They are 5.75 Backspace or + 18 offset.

I was kind of upset Method doesnt offer many Wheels in 17" with +18 offset, most are 4.75 and 5.00 Which stick out way to much in my opinion. These dont move the tires outboard much at all. I have no rub, with the Thuren 1.5 inch front springs

:rockon:
Traded to 2019 ZR2, Red.

4Runner was a GREAT vehicle but could not even tow our 6x10 enclosed utility trailer comfortably, even when it was empty-ish.

It was time. Truck was still leaking BADLY every time it rained or snowed & melted. It was leaking at every single gasket (rear window, front window, all 4 doors). You could sit inside & watch it run down the inside of windshield, rear window & drip off the upper side door beams. It was molding on the inside & starting to stink. Needed new steering gearbox, shocks, new upgraded T-style steering, tires, brake lines, d/s manifold bolts that are barely recognizable due to rust-removed & replaced. Everyone around here would not even touch em once they looked at them.

So, say what you will. PW turned into a money pit. Was no longer a joy to drive. Hoping that this downsized 4x4 with lockers will fill the bill & have minimal problems, but..... As long as manufacturers keep making engineers design things that fail soon after warranty is up, we are going nowhere fast. Regardless of what you buy. :rockon:
