2011 DC MGM TRD Sport.

I haven't seen anybody running the ATX Slots yet.

I'm also debating whether to stay with 17" rims or go down to 16s.

I really like the way Ilg's truck looks with the 16s

I like the eagles but Im also more prone to go with the others because no one has them.


I was going to go XD addicts until I saw someone running them local so I went against them.

none of the above
both designs are with fake rivests 2 piece look, when clearly is just a cheap 1 piece cast alloy wheel
where will all the dust/dirt hide on those? yes in and around those "rivet" holes, gl with cleaning them

Im a fan of geting 16's and getting more tire. I have the ION 174's but I think they look better without the center cap

Same here. The 174's were only $94 shipped per wheel. I got a few rock gouges on that trip we went on but at $94 who cares

Has anybody here put 16s on their TRD Sport? Is there any difference between an OR or Sport besides rim size that would pose a problem? The brakes are the same, right?

I like the look of more tire on Toyotas, and of course I like the price of 16s better too.

Thanks for the help guys!

Still trying to decide. I'm just waiting on a check from my old truck's extended warranty before I pull the trigger. Now I have a third choice though:

ATX Slot



Eagle Alloy 185



XD Bully



I'm going to stay with a 17" wheel. I'm also going with a 265/70/17 tire.

Looking at these myself.

I just picked up a 2012 DC TRD Sport, silver streak. I am looking at the exact same wheels. leaning towards the "ATX Slots" in 17x9 if they will fit. Mine came with the alloy 17x8's they are ok but plain.
planning on using the same tire for now?

I chose and have the ATX Slots.

FYI, the fake bead lock is plastic. Make sure the installer is aware of this as he can pop one of them off when the tires get put on...it happen to me and I was pissed.
