    Looking to put a 3” lift on my ‘11 Tacoma here soon and I’m just wondering the best (while remaining reasonably priced) 17” rims. My truck is silver so I’m leaning towards getting black rims. Anyone got experience with Pro Comps? Also some good tires to go with it in 285/70R17. Looking at BFG KO2s or some GT AT2s. First post so sorry for any problems haha.

    Personally I am not a fan of black wheels because they all look the same from 15ft away and if I'm spending money on wheels, I want them to "pop"...But thats only my opinion. It really comes down to cost and style. As for tires....there are MUCH better tires than the KO2, especially if you see snow. Not to mention you can save a few hundered on tires to get nicer wheels. Look into the Kenda Klever RTs, that will likely be my next tire. I have Duratracs currently and LOVE them, though I hate every other goodyear tire with a deep passion! haha

    I have FN Wheels Six Shooters (17x9, now only available as a 17x8) and LOVE them. But I also lean towards JDM type stuff.

    Thanks for the input. I definitely get what you mean about the black rims looking the same. As far as tires and snow, I’m in Alabama so I see very little snow but I’ll definitely take a look into your suggestions. Thank you!
