    Just got my 18" 4Runner Limited wheels Monday from trdparts4u.com. They must've been having a blowout deal on them. 127.36 a wheel!!

    I have no clue :confused:, but I want to say that they're the same as the Tacomas. I've seen a few 05+ Tacomas with them on, so they must fit okay. Since iwc3714 refuses to sell me his enkei's, though I've never asked him to, these were my second option.

    I just checked the backspacing, it appears to be 5.5", closer to 5 7/16".

    Gee, I didn't even now I had put them on sale:rofl:
    Anyhow, kudos on your new rims, they're going to look great on your truck.
    What kind of tires are you looking at?

    ^ Yes those are the rims. I kept trying to use my mental telepathy but I guess it didn't work! :rofl:

    As for tires, I'm looking at the continental crosscontact lx, but it's a highway tire. I like the cooper discoverer atr's but there is no cooper tire seller (?!) around me. Right now I have no idea, but I want to get those puppies on the truck REAL soon!

    Update:

    Finally got a set of tires which are being mounted as I type this. I had to wait a month because of family issues. As soon as I get back home, I will post up pics.

    I was able to put these bad boys on today. Tires are Yokohama H/T-S G052 265/60 R18's. I stayed with the stock 4Runner size so I wouldn't have to recalibrate the speedo. Tell me what you think:

    Graphics are by sockmonkey. He does amazing work. If there is anybody on the fence about getting them, you need to get some.
    Put the grill together today. The black grill matches the black vinyl on the lower bumper pretty good imo. Sock provided that too. :)

    The toyota emblem is blue because, well, that's the first color my daughter pointed to in Auto Zone.
