    Hey guys (and gals) I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my 2010 DC TRD Sport (hopefully will have it within a week!). I am not a big fan of the wheels and tires that come with the TRD Sport so I was hoping you all would have some suggestions for what I could get. I will be mostly on the road, hardly doing any offroading so I am considering the following for my tires:

    -gas mileage (do different tires make much of a difference?)
    -smooth highway ride
    -quiet at high speeds

    Also, I am looking for some new wheels, so if anyone cares to share their preference on wheels for the sport package I would greatly appreciate it!

    Hopefully you made it all the way through that :eek:. btw this site is great and I can't stop coming back to it every day. It's making me crazy excited to get my new taco!!

    Oh, almost forgot...I saw on another thread that I could probably get ~$500 on ebay for my OEM tires and wheels. Is this true?

    I would go with Michellin LTX's on TRD Offroad wheels.

    I really like these 17" TRD Off-road wheels. However trdparts4u.com only has them listed for the Tundra. Would they fit my 2010 DC Taco?
