    If you're going to wheel... I'd stick with 16's or 17's at most. 18's is ghetto in my eyes, but that's just my opinion. You're going to get a lot of opinions you probably don't want so... be ready :D

    As for 0 offset... you'll need to make sure they have a 4.5" backspacing. 265/60/18 will probably need some trim. Is this a TRD or not? If it is, you might be able to get away with no further lift but it'd be close and full flex will probably rub.

    However, it's pretty close so... hard to say until it's on...

    I couldn't agree more... I would stick with 16's if you are ever to go off road... you deflate your tires and your side walls are important. If you really want something that has 18's get an Xrunner or some, some.

    Don't hamper a 4x4 with these! Get a 2 wd if that is what you want!!! You'll save money so that the RBP stuff won't seem so expensive!!!

    there was just a guy on here saying he had "factory 20s". that's a donk.. or whatever the truck version of a donk is.

    I'm sad that I have 17s on my truck. I wish I had 16s. Though 17 does seem to be a sweet spot between ride and control. Well in this sidewall size anyway.
