Need help picking tires, wheels, lift size...

Here's some pics from the tacoma's i like. (I'm getting an 07 Navy blue prerunner).

Anyone know what wheels these are?

Also how high would you say this lift is?


Thanks!

Nah... I would say 3" with coilovers and UACs with AAL in the rear.... I could be wrong...

Wheels do look like MOTOMETALS but i would say 17" - 18" are TOO WIDE unless you have a 6inch...

6" with 18's here lightmup's Truck!!! His truck Below...\/

its definately a 6"- you can clearly see the kicker braces under the passenger door that go forward to help make the drop brackets more rigid. Wheels look like Moto metals too me too.
They're Motometal 951's

basic 'stage 1' 6" lift kit is about $1500, a 'stage 2' one with coilovers and better rear shocks are like $2500 plus they take a bit of work to install, some cutting and welding etc which will probably cost another few hundred bucks. wheels and tires will probably run you $1500-2000 for a combo like that.

damn so would those motometals even fit (or look good) on a regular 3-6 inch lift? OR does that sacrifice the suspension? I dont really do that much offroading in Florida...

The wheels will fit as long as you pick a 16" or larger wheel and they look real good on a 3" lift. the wheels on my truck are 17's and i've got a 3". many others on here run 3" lifts, much more than run 6" lifts actually. There are many options for a 3" lift; Strut or coil Spacers, Coilovers, or even adjustable height shocks like the bilstein 5100s. Prices of them vary from around 100-200 for a spacer kit to over a thousand for coil overs.
