    Hello Forum,

    I just bought these chrome wheel simulators & installed them on my silver '08 double cab prerunner. The ones that came with the truck (I bought the truck with 34,000 miles on it) were scratched up. I ordered it on ebay from a company called carid_2000. Great quality, the chrome simulator doesn't rattle & is designed to cover the steel wheel completely. I have always upgraded wheels on all of my previous vehicles but I am really liking these chrome simulators. I only wish that my 265/70r16's weren't so new so that I can replace them with 265/75's!

    Anyways, before I knew about these I was considering getting the 6 spoke 17" FJ Cruiser wheels with 265/70r17's but I may just keep these and go for the 265/75's which will give me the same overall height as the 17" set-up & save me some $$. Plus, I like chrome & I've been asked a few times what kind of chrome wheels do i have so I take that as a compliment.

    I ran those over my steel wheels for about a month, got a bonus at work and pulled the trigger for these:

    God gave the 5-lugger Tacoma the same bolt pattern as the Ford Mustang. Use it well.
