    The guys at Ballistic Off-road wheels just sent us some photos of one of their new wheels. I though you guys might like to see them.

    The cool thing about these wheels is that the bolts at the ends of the spokes can be removed and painted or just left off. Same for the red accents. Glad you guys like them. PM me your email address and I will email you the pictures if you can't see them.

    I personally fell in love with these wheels but I am probably going to be getting the Ballistic Wizards instead since I have a black Tacoma. I am curious though I want to get bigger tires than the lame OEMs and was wondering what is the largest size you can put onto a stock 4x4 with out a lift? 295/70 r17? or 285/75 r17? what do you guys think?

    UH NO! 265/70 265/75 anything bigger and you'll need a lift and new UCA's. Also do a search and look at the gallery this has been discussed quite often.

    And also welcome to TW!

    Yea I have a 2008 Tacoma Sport 4-wheel drive Double Cab. Currently the stock OEMs are 265/65's and I woud like to get as high as possible on the sidewall without having to get a lift for the truck. After reading around on the site I am now looking in to a 2-3" spacer lift from readylift. How big could I go on tires with that?

    I would prefer to do 0 cutting LOL I am gonna get my wheels first and put the 265/65 oems onto them since they only have 13,000 miles on em. Then I will look into a lift and bigger tires for sure. I am thinking a 275/70 would be sufficient.

    What aspect ratio are your 285's? 65 70 or 75??
