    I am about to pull the trigger on these-

    Pro “style”.

    I’m seeing the real OEM rims for not much more.

    those are 4runner trd wheels- these are tacoma trd- only in 17" vs. the 16" oem.
    it seems noone else notices the size difference. i like 17" vs 16" so i dont have to buy new tires, so its good news for me, but i think im alone.
    Murica fuck yeah! Chinese crap be damned!
    nm guys- just sharing some wheels i found on ebay.
    if i wanted oem 16" i know they're available ;)

    Good luck balancing them :)
    I did that once on my CX5 and literally ended up throwing the rims away in the end
    There is a reason good rims cost more

    There's a place in San Diego called "The Wheel Zone" that's been open since 1994. This eBay seller is WheelZoneSD but doesn't appear to be the same as the actual shop. In fact, the real wheel zone shop doesn't even carry these rims (according to their website anyways).

    IMO this seems like a crappy knock-off company that 'stole' the name of a legit shop. Lifetime warranty is very likely BS. I'd personally stay away, but it's not my truck.

    The oem posted is 17" just like what's on your truck.

    Yes the 4runner is what was posted, but I find them much nicer looking then the Current tacoma pro rims. The tacoma ones look more blobby, with less clean lines.

    No way I'm paying more for a Chinese knockoff then real Toyota parts.

    The 4runner 17" pro rims are so common on tacomas now, and I didnt want to run what everyone else is running. I think those look nice on other colors but i dont care for em on quicksand.
    i like the look of the chunky tacoma trd pro 16"s, but too each his own ;)

    It is funny to me how everyone hates on Chinese stuff as if there's nothing in their household that is made in China. be real, that isn't the case. Do I support China? no, I don't think anyone here does. But just to comment on a post to show your disdain for Chinese products is of no use to anyone, and it's stupid. Noone is 100% China free.
    Nevermind the fact that capitalism and free trade is what creates competition, forcing American companies to do even better to compete and stay viable in the market. While cheap immitation knock offs are bad when sold as something they aren't, Chinese made similiar are not knock offs technically.
    These wheels i posted about are not 16". They are a different size, and width than factory, and come in two additional finishes that the factory version does not offer. These are are different wheel. They Look like factory, but aren't a 16" identical wheel made in China. THAT is a knock off. And the pro grills everyone's running- guess where most of those are made....
    that cell phone you're using....ain't made in Texas.
    Etc etc....
    Im a veteran. Pro American, and as patriotic as they come, but I'm realistic too. While I'm not a spokesman for those replica wheels, they do have a warranty on them offered, so they can't be total garbage, and if they are, there's a warranty which if nothing else protects you as a buyer through Paypal and Ebay buyer protection.
    I have to remember daily that this is the internet and this kind of stupidity is to be expected. If i read a post and didn't have anything constructive to add, I would move along, but thats just me.
