For 2021, the Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro trim is getting its shock absorbers returned, and the whole thing will sit on top of a new set of wheels. These wheels are 17 x 7.5-Inch wheels that are painted matte-black. These wheels are made by advanced flow-form technology for improved strength, lightness, and shock resistance. The new wheels and retuned shock absorbers increase the already formidable off-road capability of the TRD Pro version of the Toyota 4Runner.
