Your opinion - xd spy's or ion 171's?

I have never bought aftermarket wheels for any vehicle but with my Tacoma I just can't resist. I have narrowed it down to these two, the KMC XD Series Spy OR the Ion 171. Would love to hear your opinion and why.

(Open to ideas on tires too)

I'd like to stick with 17" and go with a bigger tire, a 3" lift is going to happen within the next 2 weeks too

XD SPY for the win!

XD SPY's it is! Done, pictures coming next weekend. FYI the tire choice will be Michelin M/S 2's tires for the SPY wheels and full on snow / offroad tires for the stock rims.

Thanks for your help!

I can only imagine what the next mod will be.............LOL

Thanks for that! I had already made up my mind on getting the Spy's but wasn't 100% sure on whether to have the white lettering of the tires out or in. Now I am sure, they look great with those rims. Much appreciated.

Awesome looking truck BTW
