    I’ve noticed that stock OR wheels are extremely strong and can easily handle heavy, large off road tires of all descriptions while holding their balance and running true. There are lots of threads on here about wheel/balance issues usually involving various manufacturers of light wheels. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a problem involving OR wheels. No wonder, they’re about as good as it gets in terms of quality. I get it, though, everyone wants style at low cost, so Asian wheels are low cost individuality. But if you want to change wheels, you should at least try to get a high quality American made wheel. Just my .02 worth. I guess I’m lucky, I’m kind of a form follows function type of guy, and I like OR wheels. There aren’t many in the aftermarket that are better than them.

    I agree with you oldtoyotaguy, only thing i think an 8” wheel would be nice.

    I think you are misunderstanding what I'm trying to do. My truck came with Pro wheels. I want to remove the Pro wheels and install the Off Road/Trail wheels.

    But I was also wondering - what are all the reasons the Off Road wheels are better? Perhaps we have covered the waterfront - size, valve stem protection, strength, and ease of cleaning.


    I also agree with you - It's mind-boggling when I see people remove a set of high-quality Japanese forged aluminum alloy wheels and swap to a crappy set of Moto or Fuel "rims" they got from Discount Tire. :crazy:

    Sorry, will van, yes I misunderstood that. Thanks for clarifying that. I agree if you need/want 8” for what you’re trying to do.

    I just bought a 2019 SR5, and am a complete newb. I prefer the Off Road wheels and see a local set for sale on Craigslist. The sensors are removed. Is that a big deal, or can I replace with the sensors in my basic wheels?

    I replaced them with the ones in my SR5 wheels. It'll work fine.
