    Haha check this out; :p

    If you drive an average of 15,000 miles per year (average for the average guy), it will take you 66.66 years to clock a million miles. Assuming you start driving at 18 years of age, you will be almost 85 years old when you reach a million miles. Since 85 years is more than the average life expectancy (for men) in North America, these wheels will out last its owner.

    These wheels can roll you off on your final journey, to the grave yard. Now that's what I call a very good return on investment :burnrubber: .

    Well i wonder who has the most miles on their Tacoma on here. I have a friend who drives a 1991 Toyota Pickup with about 195,000 on it and I know another guy with a 1985 toyota pickup with about 270,000 on his. My friend has a Honda CRX with about 335,000 on his.

    My dad had a 92 Toyota pickup, when he gave it away to his brother it had like 300,000 miles on it (still ran like new). Then the drove it from here (south of houston) to Elpaso then to Washington and back to Elpaso and it ran like a champ. And now it has around 500,000 last I heard, all we raplaced was the water pump, altenator (got salt water all in it) and I think we had the radiator rebuilt. And thats all besides regular maintence. Man I miss that truck.. :D

    I got almost half way there with my last Toyota truck. It was an 87 4x2 regular cab. Had 480,000 when I sold it and was still going strong. The original clutch went 450,000 and the pressure plate and throwout bearing were still good. The valve cover had never been off it and it still only used a quart of oil every 1500 miles. I sold it because I needed an SUV for my business. If I had any sense I would have kept it. Best vehicle I've ever owned.
