Thumbs up New Method's and Toyo's went on today!

Method NV and Toyo AT2 P265/75r16
Went from sport wheels with BFG AT LT285/70r17 E rated and what a difference. 99% highway/city truck and the P rated is sooo quiet, smooth, and plush... less of a truck ride, yes I know its a truck, but loving the change! More photos when its washed and I find time...

Will do when I get the time and can clean it up! Method racing was unfortunately very difficult to deal with for a few reasons and I almost went a different route. Had to go through multiple vendors to get them but eventually worked out.

I imagined they would look great on a tacoma. I wanted to wait for them, but went another route. Try taking the center caps off. Probably will look even better.

It was frustrating due in part to them being such a new wheel and so hard to get a straight answer. Method changed the arrival date a few times. I had three vendors trying to get them for me.
The first one was told by method they were not available and were discontinued!???
Second vendor was told by method they were only making 17s???
Third vendor was a friend who runs a high end wheel and tire shop. They told him there was no release date and not even a projected date. So, he called all his suppliers and found a set IN STOCK!!!

Not bashing Method racing at all... The rims seem to be high quality, fit great, look great, and reviews are solid on many other styles across the board. I am assuming it was the wheel manufacturer in China that was having the issues. I was impatient and wanted them NOW! Happy it worked out and cant wait to see them on all the taco colors!!! Saw a black set here somewhere.

Center caps may be coming off soon... one is loose and making noise anyway

I've been waiting since February for my set and since the delivery date has changed 3 times, vendor told me last week they have arrived and are waiting to clear customs and waiting to receive them before shipping to me, so hopefully next week I should have them......hopefully

Looks good. Did you reuse the stock lugs?

Discount was unable to get them even though they are listed on their website. May be diff now, I tried a few weeks ago.

Stock lugs would not work. Had to use aftermarket from wheel shop!

Is the wheel silver or machined? Looks like a flat silver in pics.

Thanks everyone!

They are machined. Photos are poor quality and truck is dirty.

Tires did great romping around big bear this weekend!

Did you put in a lift kit when you upgraded your wheels?
