What would you do with $1300-1500?

Just added another Tacoma to the family. Found a 2009 Regular Cab SR5 4wd with 24k miles so I snatched it up quick. I just bought Weathertechs for it and plan on tint, fogs, satoshi, and a few other little cheap mods.

My question for all of you with the regular cabs is what would you do with approximately $13-1500 for all terrain tires, wheels, and a small lift? I have read through thread after thread and looked at tons of pictures but I have come up with very little as a decision on what to buy. I know exactly what I want to do with my 2011 Dbl Cab Sport, and know exactly what to buy....but when it comes to the 4 cylinder I draw a blank. The stock rims are pretty bad and I thought of maybe painting them black to save some money but I can't say that's my favorite option. Also, I am a little concerned about putting too big of a tire on the 4 banger. I was thinking a 255/75 maybe? I will not be regearing, so from what I have read this shouldn't be too much for it correct?

A lot of you guys have some sweet single cabs on here so I'm hoping you can help. It won't be used for any serious offroading if that helps.

Tires are a definite must for this truck...the ones on it have some life left but they look a little rough. I found some Raceline Raptors at a decent deal on ebay as well that I like. Should I stick with the 16 inch rim size, upgrade or downgrade? I have a friend who said to put 15 inch on it with 31x10.50's but I don't know if that will even work or look decent.

Getting frustrated so any help would be great. The budget above is my absolute max....and would prefer closer to the $1300 mark if possible.

Thanks for any advice.

15's won't work on a second gen 6 lug. I run 265/75/16's on my second Gen reg cab. I would love 255/85's but don't want to lose any power /mpgs.

With $1300. - $1500. to spend

With that kind of money to spend I'd be thinking real hard towards some young Puerto Rican hookers for the weekend. But hey; that's just me. <g>

These are the tires I have on my truck, wrangler silent armors, put about 15k on em already and they still look new. Wear great, are quiet and do great in all kinds of terrain, snow, ice, mud, dirt, you name it!
