    Ordered the set off of Discount tire Direct. Gotta say, I love the look. I have a black and tan interior, so the bronze wheels flow really well with the truck. Tires are 265/75/16, minor rubbing at full lock, nothing too bad. No lift.
    I'll have my impressions of the tires later on as well. So far, quiet and they have an aggressive look.

    These are some quick shots from today. I'll have better shots in my build page soon.

    Are these the +18 offset or -6 offset guardians? Looks nice

    I'm not sure which ones ElNacho has. Other Taco owners have gotten the -6mm offset to give 4.5" backspacing. Gives the truck a wider stance and works out nicely. There is a thread with more pics.

    Edit: Found the link. This thread has some pics looking down the side of the truck to show the offset. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/wheels-tires/214724-level-8-gaurdians.html

    Thanks man! Looks like the 18 offset ones should be even with the flares which is what I'm looking for.

    I had looked into Falkens in the past. Could never find them at a good price. How do you like them?
