LXGXSAM1,
Is the Lexus emblem on your center cap a decal?
What brand or where did u find the center cap and how did you manage
to shorten it?
Are your rims available in 24"?

Hi, The center cap is a DYI project which I pieced together since I could not find any Lexus/Toyota truck center cap that fills the gap.
The very center is a decal I found on eBay similar to the RC350 center caps

, but the top part is plastic which you could drill a hole big enough for any 2 - 2.25 inch factory/OEM Lexus center caps to lock-into. I intend to replace the decal later on with a Lexus cap.
I ordered a 4.25" diameter center cap online similar to this: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/a...6018/overview/. The bottom part is metal which is detachable from the top plastic cap.
I finally had the time this past weekend to cut the metal cylinder in half from the center with a hacksaw, then match-painted the caps with the wheels' color afterwards.
The rims were only available in 20" diameter from what the wheels shop in LA told me a while back. 'Sorry but the wheels were custom ordered from overseas but they didn't make a matching center caps.

I've got my eye on the Black Rhino Mozambiques also, except in 20". They are Rotary Forged, so they're extremely lightweight. Those 18's are 19lbs each, which is close to at least 10lbs under stock weight (I think). I wish the 20's came in a lower offset though, something closer to +0 offset. They only come in +15 currently.

Just realized I never posted my wheels here. Yes, street wheels on an off-road truck.

Decisions... Decisions....
I'm not sure what wheels to get for the vehicle. I'll probably get new wheels and tires after the stock tires wear down or if they need replacing due to age. At this rate with the amount of miles I'm not putting on, it'll most likely be due to the latter.

Option 1:
F sport wheels

Option 2:
BFD wheels in matte bronze from FN Wheels (https://www.fnwheels.com/new-products/bfd/) I've always liked the black on bronze look.

All of these will either be wrapped with BFG K02 or Cooper Discoverer AT3 tires.

Default Will the 2013,2014,2015 OEM wheels fit on a 2010?

Firstly, apologies for my ignorance, I'm a Noob to fortunes in general and the GX 460.

i just bought a 2010 GX 460 base and don't line the wheels, can I put the OEM wheels of newer years? Is the bolt pattern the same?

thank you for your input.

Yes, nothing has changed. 4Runner wheels will also fit, but they are not as wide.

Motolex,
Where did you get those TRD wheels? They look great. Do you have a part number? The only 18" TRD wheels I seen are for the Tundra but, those are 5, not 6 lugs. Thanks!
