I'm looking for wheel suggestions

    I recently obtained a 2010 DC TRD Tacoma, Barcelona Red. I'm looking at installing a 3" lift, Toytec ultimate lift kit. Now I'm looking at wheels. Seeing that I live in CO, I hate to get something that will require a lot of polishing. I must say that I like the look of the Mickey Thompson Classic Lock, but again because I live where there's lots of snow I hesitate with getting these wheels. I do want to stay with 16's. Any suggestions?

    When looking for wheels, be sure you're mindful of the offset specs for the wheel you like. If you get the wrong offset, you'll run into all sorts of fitment issues. A negative offset spec will stick the wheels and tires out, and a positive will pull it in closer. I suggest a 0 offset(mounting surface is dead center of the wheel). A -12mm is very common, but when looking to run the largest tire possible with a lift, you can run into rubbing on the mudflaps, front body mount, and inside of the front bumper with that offset spec.

    As for low maintenance, chrome is about as easy as it gets. If chrome isnt your thing and you prefer black, then look into powder coated or teflon coated wheels.
