    They should fit, but we need more information - stock, lifted or lowered, and how was it done? Is the center hole 108 mm? Tire size is also an issue for clearance.

    They are for a 2015 Toyota 4-Runner, so should be 108 hub

    The truck is stock today, but I will be putting bags on it and a reverse 4 link

    Would this be a better fit?


    • Size: 18x8(-2 Diameter)
    • Finish: Silver Painted
    • Weight: 28.0 lbs.
    • Offset: +10mm


    Same 2015 4 runner, so 108 hub

    the 18s will definitely clear with drop spindles - the 17s may also, but might rub at lock, depending on the wheel thickness inside the wheel.

    Pennyman1 Thanks!

    So I should not be concern with it being an 8 wide wheel?

    I prefer 18s, so I will go that route if you think 18x8 4.88 10MM offset won't rub in the back!

    I have run wheels with 5" backspacing on Geronimo, so those should not be a problem on a second gen truck.

    Last Question, are we sure it's a 108 hub? Tire rack is showing MM being a 106 hub

    They will "work" but WILL NOT tuck. With an 8" wide rim you need atleast +38mm offset unless you want to do a lot of pulling on the fenders and other mods.

    Any suggestions on wheels? I was going to change to a 5 lug, but trying to find good options for sticking with stock 6 lug

    There are some rims in the right spec but they are few and far between.

    I did toyota hubs up front and had an axle place redrill the stock rear axles to 5-lug

    Thanks for all the help, after looking at cost and the wheels I would buy. I have decided to have custom wheels made. So I got the wheels below in an 18x8 that are being built for my MM.

    Call me crazy, but the wheels cost more then what I paid for the truck, but then again my system was 3X the cost. LMAO

    Yeah custom billets are also a choice just most people don't want to spend that much cash. Nice looking rim, what brand are they? What offset did you go with?

    Bon speed Wheels and they have done a few Mitsubishi. So they are doing an 18x8, 108 hub and -38 offset, 6x139 bolt. This is what they have done on all bagged vehicles.


    I would agree they are expensive, but a toyota rear end at a junk yard was like $450. Then needed the driveshaft that I could use the end to modify mine and then weld it. Driveshaft $200. The wheels I was looking at was $800, so all in I would be at $1450.

    Paid $1900 for the wheels, so paid a little more, but a lot less work. Priceless

    Yeah Bonspeed makes a good looking wheel. And you're right you paid a little more but less work and a better look in the end with a custom billet. Congrats on the purchase, post some pics when you get to doing some work.
