Help me decide on best looking wheel to complement my Pyrite Mica DC Sport

I posted this in the 2nd Gen Tacoma Forum but maybe this forum is a better place to get responses. I am in the process of finalizing my decisions on mods for my truck. So aside from lifting 3" , I want to put a different wheel on my truck. Here's what I am considering:

Anthracite/Gray FJ Cruiser TRD wheels
Silver FJ Cruiser TRD wheels
Replica Black Trail Teams Edition FJ Cruiser TRD wheels
KMC Rock Stars Black Matte 18x9


I don't plan on debadging. I am considering putting black N-fab sidesteps on as well.

So tell me what you all think. I'm open to other recommendations as well.

So you don't care for the RockStars but you like your KMC Monsters? What size tires you running there?

I don't plan on debadging. I am considering putting black N-fab sidesteps on as well.

I ended up saving the money I would have spent on new wheels and decided to keep my stock alloy wheels and applied the saved money towards my new tires and lift. Since I put the Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs on my FJ, I decided on the Nitto Terra Grapplers for my Tacoma. So far I really like them. So here is how my Tacoma stands as of now with 265/70/17 Nitto TGs.

So now I need to finalize my lift plans once and for all. I am leaning towards the Bilstein 5100 set up with the front set at 1.75 or buying the Bilstein 5100s and Eibach Springs then doing an AAL in the rear. I tried to get the Harsh Ride Rear Spring TSB done again today and was first shot down then after threatening to call Toyota myself, they did a little more research and told me they would need to talk to their regional representative. So I am in limbo. It took me 6 months to decide on wheels and tires so maybe it'll take less time to decide on lift.

I've grown to like the stock wheels. No biggie. I like them even more with the Nittos and I am sure once the lift is on, even better. Let me know how your Eibach/Bilstein 5100 lift works. You doing new UCAs too?

I ordered my 5100's seperatly from suspensionconnection.com, I spent about $180 with free shipping(I think their sale ends tomorrow), and the Eibach springs I ordered from automotiveconcepts.net for about $135 free shipping. I'm waiting to see if I can get a discount code from toytec for the aal. With the aal it will be about $300 for parts.

I also like the stock wheels, I'm not in any hurry to replace them. I'm gonna see what happens with the stock UCAs, I don't do a lot of driving (my truck is a 2007 with only 11500 miles) so if I need them I'll have time to save up for Light Racing UCA's by the time I decide to replace the tires.

I've got my Billies at 1.75" and love the look and ride of my setup. I'm on 16's so put 265/75/16s on. I think a 3" lift is unnecessary unless you're going to upsize to 285's. The 1.75 setting with a TSB leaf pack or AAL would look great on your truck.
