    16x7.5 TRD Bronze "beadlock" wheels without the beadlocks w/ 265 70 16 Bridgestone Revo II tires (non-winter) 16x8 KMC Enduro w/ 265 70 16 Bridgestone Blizzak DMV-1 tires (winter) McGard Spline Drive lugs and locks, Satoshi Grill, BLHM, blacked out badges, Aries side steps, Smittybilt light bar with PIAA 540 plasma ion fogs, Aero-Turbine muffler
    Had my truck almost two years now and have made some changes. My goal was to make the truck unique but not stand out too much. And since I keep my cars for a long time (at the age of 33 I've only owned 3 cars, sold my first car after 14 years and have had my S2000 for over 9 years) I didn't want to do anything that would compromise the reliability or efficiency of my truck. Here she was the day I bought her...

    I removed this right away. I like boobs as much as the next guy, but not enough to put it on my truck. :D


    And how she looks today...

    Blacked out headlights, Satoshi grill w/ TRD emblem, eyelids, Smittybilt light bar with PIAA 540 fog lights, plasti-dipped lower valance.

    Tinted the front side windows, blacked out the badges, removed the chrome step bars and replaced them with black Aries, swapped the stock 17" sport wheels for 16" TRD "beadlocks" sans beadlocks. Tires are 265/70 16 Bridgestone Revo II's.

    I had the beadlocks on them for a couple days and decided I liked them better without. Too blingy for my taste.

    More blacked out badges and some decals on the canopy window dedicated to two of racing's best.

    Spline drive McGard lugs and locks.

    Painted the brake calipers with two-part G4 caliper paint. Rear drums also painted.

    Also have a set of KMC Enduros that used to be on the truck before I bought the bronze TRD's. These wheels now have my winter tires on them which are Bridgestone Blizzak DMV-1 (265/70 16)

    Future plans call for an OEM roof rack, may add a couple more lights to the light bar and an exhaust styem. The interior is pretty much stock except for an aftermarket head unit and Weathertech floor mats.

    Nice truck!, front looks mean.

    Do you still have the trd wheels and plan to keep them? if so, what do you plan on using to plug the holes for the beadlock bolts or are you gonna keep them just exposed?

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I still have the bronze TRD wheels. That's what is on the truck now until the weather gets nasty and I swap to the Enduros with winter tires. As for the holes, I checked the local hardware stores and online and couldn't find any screws that would work with these wheels. I'd like to find some black screws to fill the holes to give it a more finished look. Just can't seem to find any.

    I'm liking the build and your future mod. I need to hurry and mount my black TRD beadlock style wheels so I can start a build thread of my own. I've always wanted to make my truck look close to yours with a few touches of my own. I still need to get a canopy Leer 100XL, ditch my oem silver tube steps for the black oem tube steps. Where can I get those lug nut and lock? Toyota wants $135 + tax for the TRD wheel installation kit.

    Thanks Sport11.

    TRDsport253, I don't remember where I got the McGard lugs and locks. It was probably Amazon or eBay. They were just under $100 if I remember correctly. I should tell you that the finish on some of them is starting to come off of the lugs. Not terrible, but I think it's a bit early for them to start fading.

    did you have any fit issues with 16" wheels because of the calipers?

    Nope, both the XD and TRD wheels fit fine.
