    Too dang expensive . . . that's what I kept telling myself. But, ever since I saw a set of these on a Tacoma . . . I kind of lost my senses.

    Hope they look good on my silver DCSB - cause I ordered a set last night. (had to share my excitement):D

    Sure, but then you've got to have them powder coated ($80/wheel when I checked) and then buy the black center caps and lugs for them.

    I live in a very rural area - the nearest powder coating place is 150 miles.

    I agree - too much money either way - oh well.

    ^ I'm not sure that you are trolling or you have a friend that got you a deal. If you tell the stealership the vin they ask for a name & ID also I'm assuming.. Anyone can get a TT vin from the Internet...

    Thanks for the replies folks . . . I'm excited to see these wheels on my truck.

    So now I've got tires coming too. Hankook DynaPro LT265/75R16E

    These should be perfect for the rocky forest service/logging roads that I end up on for cutting firewood and such. I've run 10 ply tires on my Prerunner for the last 12 years and have never had a flat or even a slow leak.
