New guy lookin' for wheels

Hey all, just picked up an 04 Tacoma last month.
Pretty much wanted a Tacoma as long as I can remember, awesome truck so far.


Anywho - it'll need tires sooner than later and I've been toying with the idea of picking up a set of wheels as well.
I've been looking at the KMC enduros - I dig em, and always thought I'd want dark/black wheels, but the more I look at trucks my color (lunar mist I think?), I think a brushed aluminum would look good.

I'm currently running Bridgestone duellers 265/70/16's - I wouldn't mind going up maybe a tire size. Looking at the Nitto Terra Grappler's.
I'd like to stick with a 16" wheel, probably 16x8.

Any suggestions? Pics are a big help. I've found a lot of pics, but truthfully am not that familiar with truck tire/wheel sizes - so if they arent listed, I have no idea what I'm looking at


Thanks in advance..
And an obligatory pic

I kinda like these....



I don't really like the centercap - any other wheels like this (they also don't come in 17")?

Nothing wrong with the wheels you have, they look good on a silver Taco.
Just put some more rubber on them. At least 265/75/16s.
Mine with 255/85/16 BFG KM2s (33.3")

How about these? They are available right now, no waiting. =)

Gunmetal or matte black are both available. Made in Japan, name brand, brand new wheels.

Weds Adventure Hase Spec wheels, 16x8" 0mm offset (4.5" back spacing).

I can get you a really good deal on them too!
