    What does everyone think of me doing my build similar to my first toyota which is pictured above? only difference would be black mickey thompsons instead of polished, and suspension lift instead of body lift

    I was very easy! I went to the local paint store, they put a scanner two places on my hood, to match the color. I got two cans of paint, and one can of clear. It matches perfectly, I am very impressed with the outcome

    1) im just dont really like them
    2) i just bought tires that at 17" wheels and these are 18's
    3) they have too much offset to run 285's according to KPT
