    I was on discounttiredirect.com and I noticed that the only Guardians listed were the Chrome ones and I didn't see any other options, so I didn't know if they were being discontinued.

    Sorry for the delayed reply. Our subscriptions were removed somehow and we didn't get an email for your post.

    Are you still looking for a set of Guardians? If so, what size?

    It's ok. I'm wanting new wheels really bad, but I can't decide what I want. So I keep looking and looking at different styles and I was on discounttiredirect.com and noticed they weren't listed any more. I'm gonna stick with the 16". Just don't have the funds right now. Hopefully soon but just keep looking like everyday and all these awesome looking tacos up here.

    The Guardian is one of my favorite models but you're right, there are a lot of excellent styles to choose from :cool: The Level 8 MK6 seems to be another popular model for the Taco.

    To your question, no, the 16x8.5 Guardian has not been discontinued. We are just currently sold out which is why it's not showing up on our site.

    Gotcha, if I go with a level 8 wheel I'm looking at the Guardian, MK6, and the ZX I think. The one with the replaceable outer ring.

    All great choices! I run the ZX on my X and they are holding up well. I run the bolt on rock rings as well.
