    Congratulations, you just revived a 5 year old thread! :yay:

    On a side note, Mud Bug hasn't logged in in over a year, don't think he will respond to that question. Is a shame he isn't around, that is definitely a cool truck he's got.

    who else thinks 15s and 16s with a nice thick tire looks better? 18s are entering mall crawler territory on a little tacoma.

    Not only that but tire prices on an 18" rim are stupid high... I dropped from 18"ers on my Sierra to 17"ers and am saving close to 200$ per tire... My bfg's were running me over 400 a tire
