    Nothing yet, but look forward to getting started.
    I'm wondering what the pro's and con's are of each wheel size? I'm interested in 17's but wondering about how this size wheel performs on a Tacoma.

    I've heard 17's smooths the ride out but I've also heard the engine has some trouble driving these? How about gas milage, is that affected? Off-road capability vs highway driving?

    Any feedback would be appreciated

    I'd like to be more informed before I leap. Thanks!

    more tire options in 16"

    16" tires are cheaper then 17"

    more sidewall is better off road

    i got 16" because i like the look of more tire then rim, and the tires are cheaper for 16"
