    Ok, so I was all planing on getting these nice looking wheels in a 16 and then some nice M/Ts in 265/75. Then I was told that 16s in those wheels would look stupid on my taco and I should get 18s and then adjust the tire size to fit.

    So I guess the questions are... Can I get 18s and adjust a M/T size to fit? Would it look stupid on my '02 prerunner? If I can do it and if it wouldn't look stupid then what size tire would I need?:confused:

    I am looking at the Ultra Maveric wheels if you want to see them.

    They look kinda cheesy up close, but when on vehicle they looks better.

    Ok, so looking at tire size calculators and such it looks as if I could get 265/65R18 for those wheels. Now if only I could find 265/65 M/Ts!

    Ok, I gave up! :frusty:

    I'm getting the 17" Ultra Mavericks with the 265/70R17 Kumho Road Venture KL71s. Now I just have to wait for another week or so when my taxes come back and I will be set! :yay:

    Unless I change my mind again.. I am a chick afterall!
