Shock and Wheel question on stock 2X4

Ok i have 2 question..

1. what are good shock for stock truck.
I drive hard, fast and on twistey roads.

looking for Good cost and high cost...

2. what is the widest wheel and tire combo that can be added to a stock truck. with out rubbing.. i know most of you get lifted and add off road tires. Well that is not my thing.. i do love the Pre-runner look, but I am more a lower truck guy as i drive to fast to go up... i should go down...

any help would be great.

As for shocks....I guess it all depends on what you're looking for.

I had a set of OME shocks on my previous tacoma - and they wore well and rode nice. However - they're more expensive.

Another recommendation - although never had them on a stock truck....is Doetsch Tech Shocks paticularly the Prerunner variety.
These are about $40 (give or take) each.

I personally hate Rancho, they don't last very long and I've had a couple of them leak.

Sell your Taco and buy an X Runner. If you want to go fast and be low, thats what you need.
