Hi there
I hope you have better luck than we did. We searched for weeks for exactly the same as a second spare. We ended up getting our nephew from Topline mechanical in Alpha to get one for us. He got it from a place in central rockhampton. Cost us about $600 (including freight )for the alloy rim and a pretty good tyre attached.

Just a quick addition to the previous reply.
Make sure that the nuts you are looking for are specified either insert or washers. Which one do you want.
We have a landcruiser 79 series 5 stud with the washers, there are x 2 types of nut which came out during that period.
Just be sure you are getting the right ones in the first instance.

Sharon&Ian. “Yes I’m told these illusive Alloy Rims are as scarce as hens teeth” Toyota want $900 a rim, so I’ll keep my fingers crossed “Thanks for the heads up on the wheel nuts” Regards Elvis

You were lucky with the price. We were quoted on the Gold Coast $1000 + GST just for the rim.

This has to be a scam post.
Elvis would not require anything other than Cadillac rims.

Hi Bob. I’m not sure Mate, I suppose any Cruiser Rim 16” 5 stud that looks the part would do. Regards Elvis

Hi Elvis
Is there a chance you could post a photo of the required rim. I replaced one on my van last year in Kalgoorlie. Admittedly it was a 100series 2004 but it was identical to what I had. Got the rim for $250.

regards
