    I’ve done another thread with a poll trying to get my wheelchoice down to one. I was excited about most styles, but I eventually loseinterest in them. I was hesitant about the Monsters because they are so commonyou’d think they were a factory option now, but I love how they look onTacomas. I was planning on going with the Monsters, then I saw the XD Spy’s ona Jeep driving into work. I really like them (at least, at the moment I reallylike them). Monsters have stood the test of time for me as far as how I likethe look. I don’t know what the Spy’s will do for me over time, but I thinkwith my tire selection they will make the truck look very tough, solid andaggressive.

    I will be putting 285/65/18 Nitto Trail Grapplers on them.

    Lets get your feedback. I like being unique, but I do likethe Monsters even though they are overplayed. What do you think of the Spy’sinstead?

    I like the Spy's. My neighbor has them on his Dodge. If it wasn't for him having them, I'd have them on my Taco.

    That's my dilemma with the monsters. Two people on my street have them.
