    I've read decent reviews of that tire. Plus it has a 40K mile warranty (which I haven't seen on a mud terrain tire). The only downside I've read is that it's a 2-ply tire (more vulnerable?). I'm also not sure if they come in 285/75r16 (I think the largest is 265/75R16). For the price though they're hard to beat. Plus, Pep Boys currently has a buy 3 get one free deal.

    I'm going to paint the grill surround. I'm not sure yet if I'll do black or silver. I've thought about bedlining it too. I also have a can of silver streak mica coming that I've thought about using to try and color match it to the truck.

    ah, cool.....the grill surround will look great either way i think man. and for those tires.....only 2 ply?? i thought all m/t tires were 6 ply???:confused: hmmmm......well either way, if they are 2ply........i wouldnt take them rock climbing, but regular mudding should be fine. maybe they come in an lt tire size...........and those are more than 2 ply i think.

    Seeing that Im from San Diego too, I would remember a truck like that! Sweet A$$ ride. Seriously. It's nice to see someone go the extra mile to make theirs look different in a city where a tacoma is on every other street.

    Alll of the places I looked stopped selling them unless you had an FJ Special Edition VIN number. Of the places that were selling them (eBay), the prices were getting a little too crazy ($700-$800 for 4 rims). So I started looking into other wheels and found these for ~$500. Plus, I looked into them a little more and some people were complaining that they scratch up very easy.
