Right first 2 or 4WD? (5 or 6 stud)

2nd, make sure any wheels are to the same load rating or better and that applies to the tyres also.

I've seen pictures of oval alloys way under rated and the results of a low load tyre rolling of the wheel due to side wall compression and lateral force.

Sadly no longer own the bus reverted to a Townace.

Bull bar was on it and I guess from Japan, bit of a bodge fit bit it held the extra spot/fog lamps on.

Hilux should take the load but are they 5 stud?

I rubbed my wheels down (used a wire brush in a drill then wet and dry) and sprayed with Hammerrite smooth, still looked good after 2 years.

Hi mate, I researched wheels for my Van EXTENSIVELY and can tell that you need wheels with a PCD of 5 x 114.3 and an offset of ET35 and you need them to be load rated. What size do you want? there are quite alot of 18inch wheels with those dimensions as they fit Nissan Skylines and Mitsubishi GTO's but not sure they are load rated. I wanted 15inch ones as I had just forked out 400 quid on a new set of tyres and I also didn't want to compromise ride quality. After a lot of searching I finally found a set in Germany that were 5x114.3 and load rated but were ET40 so I bought them and fitted high tensile wheel bolts and 5mm shims to my hubs to ensure clearance. They really make the Van look great but it was hard work tracking them down! Good luck!
