    necro bump! stock height, stock size tires, Falken Wildpeak A/Ts. highly recommend this tire for mileage & road noise... good mileage, low noise, traction is kinda ehhh in wet conditions though. I put them on with the big silver center caps. I actually liked these some a lot of angles but they have started rusting due to winter salt so I am going to go with something different in the summer.

    don't actually need to take mudflaps off with this setup either, I just ripped the driver's side one off on the huge curb in front of this shitty house

    Looks great temps! I recommend leaving hub caps off, just clean up the hubs and hit them with some flat or matte black rustoleum. Looks much better IMO.

    Thanks for the post / photos! Great looking truck! We hardly ever see any red 2nd Gens anymore!

    PM me if you need some black caps to replace those chrome caps. :)

    thx.

    that is what I'm going to do - keep the rims looking nice and deep. then maybe red pinstripe around the outside. don't think I'll do anything else, this truck was so good looking from the factory I can't see many ways to improve it.. since the yamaha already had the hood scoop and whatnot

    How much more will the 17" with 4.1 backspace and -10 offset stick out than a wheel with 4.5" backspace and 0 offset of the same size? - Thanks

    Hi,

    The 17x8" -10mm offset (4.1" backspacing) wheels will sit outward 10mm additional (or approximately .4") more than 8" width / 0mm offset / 4.5" backspacing wheels.

    Hey Dustin, I'm very interested in a matte bronze set of these for pick up. What is the timing and other details I should know? Website says May 15th just wondering if I should plan for that? Can PM me if you like.

    You're very, very welcome. I really appreciate you and everyone else being so patient with the time that it took for the wheels to arrive.

    I have contacted everyone from the waiting list / pre-order list, and all pre-orders have shipped.

    It looks like we will definitely have a few matte black and matte bronze sets still available to ship out from this shipment. I might have one or two anthracite light gunmetal sets as well (still waiting for a couple of calls back from the waiting list).

    Anyone who is interested in a set please call or text me on my cell: (714)390-9387.

    *NEW FOR MAY 2014:

    The 17" Konig Countersteer Type X wheels are now hub centric for 6-lug Toyotas and the lug holes are sized for 12mm Toyota studs for an even more precise fitment.

    These new Konig Countersteer Type X wheels now also accept the popular flat type OEM center cap from Toyota : Part # PTR18-35092.
