Thanks I'm constantly watching the progress of your truck 'cause I planning on selling mine this Spring and beginning the mod journey all over again.

The lower front valance is a 4x4 valence, custom painted obviously. The metal part of the bumper is now chrome but I've apparently been too lazy to take pictures of my truck the past few years.

I personally love the Vossen 5-spoke wheels... I'd certainly love to find something similar for when I buy my new Taco (something that costs less than $500/wheel would be nice!)

If the OP hasn't already seen it, there's a nice tire comparison tool on the Tacoma World web site:


tire calculator

Using that tool, I'm thinking that a 255/40R19 seems like a nice size for a second gen Tacoma. That overall size is nearly identical to the X-Runner's OEM 255/45R18's.

19's? lol

Do you know how much tires cost for 19" rims? Ridiculous amounts of monies!

couple important things to remember. If someone suggests a tire and you have an 01-04 and they have a 95-00.. your factory tire sizes are different and what will work for them will leave you showing about 10mph too fast. It's not fun. I suggest 18s because they wont look like gay ass cholo wheels and they wont look gay like 17s look no offense to 95-00 guys, you can use the smaller wheels and maintain a reasonable lo pro tire, 01-04 can't w/o kind of screwed up speedometers.


Since the s runner comes w/ a 55 series on 16 in wheels.. you can run a 235 45 18 which looks pretty damn nice and it's almost identical to stock

How do you figure? I'm guessing there are more 18" and 20" wheels available on the market, but there are quite a few 19's I wouldn't mind having at very reasonable prices... like this one for $170:

That's less than the X-Runner knock-offs if purchased new

Read what I wrote again.

I have two sets of XR rims, got them both for $400 from CL, argument invalid.

1st rarest would be a step side S-Runner. VoodooTrip has one, and it's supercharged.

2nd rarest would be the base model 5 lug with V6 that isn't an S-Runner. Speed Freek has one; but then he put a Chevy V8 in it after his V6 blew. haha
