15x8J ET-8 rims on L300?

Post by jejoenje » Sat Mar 23, 2019 8:04 am

Hi all
Apologies if I've posted this in the wrong section.

Does anyone here have any experience running 15x8J offset -8 rims on a stock (not lifted) L300? If so, any issues with rubbing at full lock etc?
I've spotted a very cheap set of those rims with tyres on (265/70's). They are Toyota Hilux rims, and I know the 7J variety fits no problem, just not sure about the 8J's.

Thoughts?
Cheers
Jeroen

I don't have practical experience with those rims in particular, however I'm looking at a set of 16"x8 ET10 wheels, which fit with 8mm between the rim and top suspension arm. The Hilux ET8 (positive offset is stock on a Hilux) should fit just fine, unless there's something I've overlooked. (How's that for an encouraging, but ultimately useless answer!)

You could always make a cardboard mockup; draw a section of wheel and tyre on cardboard, cut out, and hold against the wheel flange. Very easy. You won't even need any sticky-backed plastic.
Nothing says "poor workmanship" more than wrinkles in the duct tape.

I am running 15x8 et 0 and the wheel sits flush to my flared fenders. You may have a bit of poke on a stocker.

Hi both,
Thanks for this - very useful info. Apologies for my slow reply, I should probably spend more time on here checking for messages! :)
Turns out I am now pretty sure that the seller got the width wrong on the rims I was looking at. I never ended up buying them, but they were 7J's, which is what I was expecting... :-D
I do think the same rims are also available with different offsets (they are these https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/Z6MAAOSw ... -l1600.jpg I'm thinking of), ET-8 being the most commonly available ones in the UK.
I'm keeping my eyes peeled - not in a massive hurry at the moment (slight cash flow issues) but I want something that sits a bit wider and further "out" to my current stock 6J ET22's.
Cheers
Jeroen
