Which Wheels?

It will probably be a couple of months or so until I order any wheels, but I'm bored and want to see what others think haha

Which would be better?

Black Rock 997-Series Type 8


Black Rock 950-Series Lobo

Hmm, tempting... would be a lot lighter than steelies, but it would cost $120 more...

As of right now I think I'm just gonna go with my original decision, KM2's. As long as I budget my money well for the next 2 months and with my tax return, I should have my lift, wheels, and tires installed by the end of March!

So if I'm reading you correctly, your getting the wheels for free?
Because the procomps are $120 each.
or $120 more for a set?

Of those two choices for sure the one with round holes.

That other design if white in color, looks like factory 1970 something Toyota or datsun truck wheels. Or a design you would see on a 30 year old small boat or flatbed trailer!

Mhm, but if I can find a set of those procomps for almost the same price I'll probably get those. I think they look a little bit better plus it'll save weight!

Hmm, now that you've said that I think that option is out the window... Haha

when i upgrade to 285/75R16, im going to go with the summit racing steelies. not sure which ones but go to summitracing.com and look for the summit racing 84 and 85 style rims. the 85 is very similar to the ones in the first pic. both are only about 55 a rim. about the cheapest ive seen.

they ought to fit just fine. as long as the center hole is bigger than the hub, and you have the proper lugs with the rims, then you should be just fine. ive seen these same rims on other 6 lug tacos. im gonna get me a set of 5 when i upgrade to my 285's because every tire site reccomends an 8" wide rim (even though ive seen 285's mounted on 7 and 7.5" rims..)

damn u know i asked them and they told me not too long ago but i dont remember. i was only looking for the weight difference between the two and it was so small its negligable. but i think i prefer the 85 "O" style as well. at least for my truck. I like the "D" on older pickups and maybe earliest model tacomas.

I bought the "O" shaped ones but they rub on the caliper. So I had to get some 1/4" spacers.

the matte black 7069s are a beautiful wheel, I have them on my 2nd gen. Combine those with a set of gorilla locks in black and you will not be dissapointed.
