    Just ordered the ProComp 1028's for my Speedway Blue 4x4 Dbl Cab TRD. Got home and my wife and daughter like the Monsters (that I went down to buy) better.

    These two rims look nothing alike, but I am having a hard time choosing. I like the old school, "functional" look of the 1028's, but I also like the "bad boy" looks of the Monsters. I also have this gut feeling that the Speedway Blue color will look better with polished alloy rather than black, but I like the Monsters alot. I've seen the Monsters on several trucks, but I couldn't find any pics of the 1028's on Tacomas and now I'm worried that the 1028's might be flashier/blingier than I was expecting. Please help me choose - I can still change the order. Here are some pics to help you decide:

    I'd appreciate your input asap as I still have time to change the order.

    Here are some extra pics. My daughter let me borrow her rims to see if I liked black wheels.

    Im thinking the Monster's....:)
    Ive seen the Monster's being run without the center cap, and it looks good. Give's a more unique style.
    But Black on that Blue looks great!

    I would only get the monsters if your going to lift your truck with big beefy tires. If you want to keep it stock go procomps.

    I ordered Nitto Terra Grapplers in 275/65-18 C. I was going to get the Duratracs, but that size was only available in E. I also have 5100's with the front set to 1.75". Rear has TSB with Toytec 1.5" AAL.
