    Here you go.

    These are the wheels I had made up for my restomod project. They're insanely light and reasonably priced for an American-made product, about 8-9 pounds for a 15" wheel.

    You can choose a 17" wheel and a 6 x 5.5 bolt pattern. Each half of the wheel is a configurable width so you can choose your total width and offset. Load capacity? Not sure, you'll have to ask.

    Here's your chance to show manufacturers that you have dudebro money to spend.

    @Snickel Fritz You already have the trail wheels. They are not the lightest but they are very durable and the best stock off road rims you can get. Probably better than most aftermarket rims. They protect the valve stem very well. If you need them a different color just have them powder coated.

    I'm not kidding! They price out to about $350 per wheel but you can get a 17x7 wheel with zero offset, and a 6x5.5 bolt pattern. And there's no fake beadlocks or unnecessary gaudy trim. They're the real deal man.

    Except that military bore for 6 x 5.5 bolt patterns are over 130mm. 4Runners are 106mm. 4Runners are designed for hub-centric wheels. Even if ring adapters for something that size existed, I cannot imagine that being a good idea for a daily driver... maybe a show car, which is what those wheels are designed for.
    Really Tory, you don't have to help. I get it- you don't understand why I'm even bothering to discuss the idea in this thread. There are others interested however.
    If my "dudebro" comments above offended you, I apologize. If you aren't actually trolling or just being facetiously snarky this time, I apologize.
    Thanks anyway.

    4Runner (and all midsize Toyota 4x4 trucks) are 6x139.7 bolt pattern.

    They are not show car wheels, they are performance wheels.

    I'm really sorry that there doesn't seem to be a perfect readymade solution to your quandary, but you are sort of on a lonely path here. You want a 17x7 wheel, but none of the ones that are readily available seem to be what you're looking for... for reasons.

    Dude, you're really being snarky for no reason. Every comment you have made has been a challenge to the thread itself. Your one "suggestion" was for a wheel that will not fit due to it's massive bore. You've been trying to low-key troll here instead of doing so on T4R lately, and against my better judgement I bothered to respond to your first post.
    You're obviously not here to help, so kindly abstain from commenting on my thread. Good day.
