Been on another hiatus due to work, but finally back stateside and have the Taco on my mind. Have the parts on order for an ICON Stage 4 lift (3") and I'm facing the snowball effect of:
Bigger Lift -> Bigger Tires -> New Wheels
My mind is fairly set on getting the BFG KM2 (285/75/16) and currently have the stock TRD Beadlock wheels (black w/ silver edging). My buddies say I shouldn't have any issues with rubbing...but I've read differently on trolling the posts and my buddies have been known to be wrong on a sh*t ton of topics. Three big questions:
1. (Most important): Should I keep the current wheels or pair the new tires with something else? I'm not entirely sold on black rims because they look like cheap steel wheels from 50' or more away...but anything too fancy looks like arse when put through any minor abuse. Any and all viewpoints are welcome!
2. How serious is this rubbing going to be...aka what do I need to accomplish to drive it out of my garage without any concerns on highway, offroading or otherwise?
3. This will probably screw up my whole post with opinions and side convos...but any significant issues with the KM2s, 16" wheels or pairing those KM2s with my beadlocks?
Like I said, I've been searching the forums for a good post on "just the right answer"...but it eludes me. Sometimes these questions are like herding black cats in a room with no lights...and I'm entrusting you all to cowboy up and give me some useful advice. Thank you in advance! Happy Presidents' Day.
