I can't remember if I didn't mention it or had a typo or something but the stock wheels on it now are 16's. Im still not 100% on anything, so always open to suggestion.
No I have a wider tire. But my brother has them. He has to do the pinch weld mod that's it. And his tires are like 34 and 1/2" tall filled up.

Thanks guys.
And thanks for the lil chart moose. Also, good to know about the MPG.
15 sounds like what I will be doing. Still not 100% on the size of tire I want but that isn't really rocket science. My main point is that I want a new look, so I wont be keeping these wheels on it. Id probably sell them on CL, or just save them incase something happens. Ive been known to pop tires from time to time
I want wider wheels/tires, but not sure that that will happen.

I looked at your photos..are those the same wheels/tires on it?? It looks pretty good. That is actually sort of the style of wheel I think I want..But more holes. Oh great that just sounds dirty.

My suggestion is to do as you are, and do a lot of research. There are a lot of tire and wheel combinations that you can do. MOST of the trucks that run 33 inch tires need to have a lift to fit them. It also depends on things such as are you using this to mall-crawl, or will you be doing any serious off-roading? As your vehicle travels off-axis the tires get stuffed into the wheel well areas, increasing the risk of rubbing/making contact. There are a bunch of threads that talk about tire size that you will find helpful if your search. My suggestion is be cautious about wheel spacers, and large off-set numbers. These can stress your wheel bearings, and the Tacoma tends to be weak in that area.

I've considered this very idea. I even tried to get mad max on a lisense plate, but it was already taken.

Problem with making a build thread at this point, is that I'm so far into it that it would take an entire day to write it all out and post pics and videos.

What do you guys use for your diagnostic plug, I was hoping that on my 95.5 that the obd 2 would work, but no.

Trying to check my check engine light.
