    Just took delivery of my 2012 Sport Upgrade Tacoma last night. It is a street-only truck so I just wanted some great all season tires, a lower profile tire than stock, no bicycle tire look of 22's, an OEM look, and minimal bling.

    I went with the 2008 4Runner Limited wheels and 265/60R18 Michelin M/S2's. Certainly not a set-up for the off-roaders, but it works great for me. My Sport Plus wheels are for sale, if anyone wants a set.

    It was getting dark when I finally snapped the photo.

    BTW, what do you think the over-under on a decent-sized scratch on your new truck should be? Mine was about 10 hours: pick up the truck, go to bed, wake up, scratch truck. Motherf'er! Oh well, the first scratch always hurts the most and it is a truck after all.

    Love the rims. FWIW you can run 265/65/18 on stock suspension

    Thanks!

    Thank you. I really thought about the 265/65-18's, read about how it basically corrects the speedometer, etc. I was trying to get a little lower profile tire rather than a larger diameter tire and the spare is 265/60 so, for no real good reason, I just decided to keep the stock size tire. I even went through the process again last night. Damn you, now you have me second-guessing myself again. LOL.

    Don't second guess it looks great the way it is.

    Great Wheels. Did you go after them specifically, or did you find some available and decide they would look great?

    And, of course MGM is my all time favorite color (and the color of my 2010 Access Cab)
