Hello Fellow Taco Fans! After years of wanting one I finally bought myself a Taco. It is nothing special but is a blank canvas. It's a base 2wd regular cab, 5 lug, white, 2005. It is setting on stock 15 inch steelies. I have no desire to lift it or try and make it look like a 4wd but I do not like it as is. I think the rear is sitting slightly lower than the front. I am planning to add a leaf spring from Fat Bob to fix this.
I don't like the stock rims and would like to fill in the wheel well a little more. I would like to avoid hurting the mpg, the ride and to much speedo error as much as possible. My options as I see them are to keep 15 inch rims and go with a slightly taller tire or increase to a 16 inch rim without a taller tire.
My question? Any other options without the lift? I don't want 18's with low profile tire look... Just a beefier looking regular truck...
Also, what are the pros and cons of the 15 vs. the 16 inch on a base suspension?
Thanks! This forum has been a huge help!
