    I can't decide whether I want 18" or 20" wheels on 35's with a 6" lift. In the pics I can't tell the size of the wheel. If you have a 6" lift would you post a pic of your truck with the wheel and tire size?

    I have18's on my truck with 32.4's and I wish I would have stuck with 17's. I have a fair amount of sidewall but if you plan to use your truck offroad stick with 17's. If you really want the look of bigger rims go with the 18's. Mine looks good with the 18's but sometimes in the desert i would like a little more side wall.
    My opinion which is worth $.02 is 20's are best for mall crawling. They look good but save the rims for a sports car.

    on a 3" lift the 16" looks good but I want a bigger wheel with a 6" lift. I'm new to the game and I can't tell what size the wheels are in all of these great pics.

    16" and 35" tires. I think the look of huge rims and thin tires look lame on a truck

    This shot is before the new dura tracks but the tire pictured is just under a 33 (think it is a 32.4 or something according to tire calculator)

    Here is 17" on 33". I had 20" and hated there is no sidewall. It is just person opinion though.

    LOL... I wouldn't worry about it. It doesn't really matter to me. IMO I think a 20" rim is a tad overboard for a Taco but everyone has what they like. I just know I have seen alot of pppl get flamed over the topic of 20's on a Taco.

    Nice truck Redgrom. 18" are the ones i like with the 35's. I guess the pics that I seen with what I thought were 22" wheels were 20". and yes they did look like shit. I almost made a big mistake! If someone has 35's on 18's with a 6" lift post it on here. I would like to see what mine is going to look like for sure.
