    I have a TRD sport and 17' wheels. Are 16' rims better and if so why?

    The only difference I see, is visually, they allow more rubber to be shown, rather than rim.

    16" tires are usually cheaper and more choices.

    coming from a honda background, tires were actually cheaper for 17s than 16s, but from what i understand 16s are more common now than they were then

    15"s dont fit on a 2nd gen.

    i prefer 16"s over 17"s. tires look bigger and more beefy on a 16"

    I think 17 foot rims would set you back another $250 per tire, but they'd be sooo big!

    For real though it's up to you, really not that much difference on a pickup since's there's a lot of sidewall anyhow. You're not filling the wheelwell with wheel like a lowered car or truck.

    Get something you like, they'll perform about the same.

    A few more tire options with the 16".
    More rubber between your rim and whatever you are running over with the 16" which makes the better for off road, hence the more tire options.
    Other than that, no real difference.
