    they rub a little bit, in a sharp U-turn position.... im adding a coil-over suspension (3'') soon to clear better... i wasnt much of a 20's guy myself, but for $500 with tires (2000 miles), my rims and tires (16" ekei) i couldnt let them pass by.... they were worth the try and i like them alot!

    those wheels actually look pretty damn good on there man. im not a really huge fan of big wheels, but those are just the right combo of good looks, and they arent blingy at all. good job man.:)

    I saw "20s" in the title and I thought "ugh, please no" But then I saw the pics and I like the way your truck looks with 20s. Definitely a nice mod.

    yeah, 20s on our trucks don't look big. I'm used to cars that have 20s and look ridiculous.

    Last night at QT while getting gas. I saw an Infiniti SUV with low profile 26's. OMG! That was a big tire. The guy said he would have gotten 29's but would have had to cut & didn't want to do that. What was weird is it didn't look bad on that big suv.

    Expect about 25K miles from a 60K mile tire on those 20s.

    no need to... being that i recently did a S.A.S (solid axle swap) to my 1990 toyota (pics to come)- in all i lifted it over 10 inches and have a few more mods to do before she is ready for hunting season... with my tacoma i plan to be able to go off road, but obviously not at the present clearance of the tires.... lifting is in the works!
