    I just installed pro comp's 3/1 leveling kit in my 12 Pyrite TRD Off Road and am very excited...now losing my mind deciding on wheels and tires, soo much $$$. Also, I'm about to plasti my grill! Any suggestion on what good wheels/tires would look good on a pyrite mica taco?? Shopping for wheels is making me regret this color I once fell so deeply in love with!

    I would say anything black would look pretty solid on it, maybe with a bit of a chrome accent.....like polished lips or something. Truck looks good by the way :D

    I'm leaning toward something like the KMC XD Misfit with some aggressive MT's like 285/70/17...but I could go more economical and paint my stock wheel and do a big mean tire.

    Just for the record i think 2012 grills can seperate the chrome surround from the main grill, might make it easier.

    And im a huge fan of black but for your color truck a polished would look good IMO.
    Nice truck BTW!

    Wheels are the TRD black beadlock 16"
    Tires 265 R75 16 Duratrac

    I haven't lifted it at all yet but want to do a 2-3" lift in the near future for a little more clearance and weight carrying in the rear.
