Talking What Tires & COLOR rims should I get?

I'm a new threader here!!

TIRES- Looking to add some new tires on my tacoma. I'm LOOKING to put on 235/75/15 & I dont know where to start. I know people on this website know their stuff. I'm not rich so I'm not trying to spend a fortune but I wouldnt mind spending money on decent off-road looking tires.

BLACK RIM- I have the manufacture rims on my truck and i'm looking to paint them black. Any suggestion on HOW and WHAT color black I should use?

YOU GUYS ARE THE EXPERTS & I APPRECIATE ALL THE SUGGESTIONS..

bfgood or michelin a/t if you have the cash.

Here are some that are top of the line but may not look badass if that's what you're into:

I put m/s 2's on mine and cleaned the rims with comet and a tooth brush. Tonight I will plastidip them and may paint the caps flat black. If the plastidip wears off then I will probably paint them with cans.

i would get a BFG TA KO tire..Its a nice well known brand and its not too expensive. Michelin now owns BFG and also does Michelin testing on a BFG tires. I would at all cost stay away from Goodyear just personal preference, I just dont like the way ALL Goodyears are made. I just feel the material in the belts are not as well made other than the Goodyear Silent Armour which has kevlar in the belts.I work at Sams club tires.And a BFG tire sounds to fit your budget and what you need it for so a BFG TA KO is what i would recommend to you...and im cheap with rims so i plasti dipped mine and its holding great so far..18.00 solution and easy to do

I have Goodyear Wrangler Radials on mine that are that size. They're not m y favorite looking tire but they were dirt cheap and they're surprisingly good offroad and in snow.

Thanks for all the help. I'm definitely leaning toward BFG. Now I'm just looking for a place to do them at a affordable price. If anyone knows of any GOOD online stores to buy from or any in south florida that have recommendations, I'd also appreciate that. THANKS AGAIN!
