    Hi, I just got a 2010 Double cab 4x4.. Im looking to get some good but affordable wheels. I will have a 3" lift and running some 285s on 17" wheels.

    Im looking at this

    http://www.4wheelparts.com/prodDetail.aspx?partNo=BRW909B786045

    or

    http://www.4wheelparts.com/prodDetail.aspx?partNo=PCW98-7883

    Now questions
    1. I saw few running pro comp wheels, but are they good/reliable?
    2. Having wide tires what specs should i look into, lets say 3" vs 4.5" backspacing.. i should go with 4.5".. or doesnt matter and i would need to use some spacer regardless
    3. you guys have links to better deals or maybe better wheels?
    4. any suggestion on tires.. Aggressive looking, decent on road and off road. maybe less than 200 each tire

    Sorry im a noob on trucks, saw few related threads but I have too much question so i'de rather start my own than to threadjack.. lol

    thanks

    I personally like the looks of the first wheel better but haven't heard any negative about the pro comp wheels either.

    As for tires, I am rockin Nitto Terra Grapplers and I love them. I have BFG A/Ts on my old truck and didn't like them. I did not feel like I had great traction and they wore like s**t.

    ^^ So you like both? :p

    I like the first better too.. just looking for some feedback or maybe some answers to shed some light.. ill look into that nittos. Im sure these are not best of wheels, not looking to pay some baller wheels like 600 a piece. but this seems like it will do the job for what im gonna use it for, great pice too..

    You'll want the 4.5" backspacing for the 33's.
