    I'm having one heck of a time deciding on what rims to buy.
    Looking to get 16" rims.
    I know I want black wheels and like the look of the 3 from Pro Comp below:

    and this is what I'm working with:

    Any and all suggestions will be taken, thank you :)
    The rear will be raised 3-4" when my All Pro Expo Leafs come this week
    So don't mind the temporary bro lean.

    Again, THANKS!

    Yeah when I saw them on w00dy's 2003 Tacoma, they do look nice
    Here's the link to his build so y'all can see what they look like on a Taco:
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/1st-gen-builds/269425-w00dys-2003-doublecab-aka-driveway-queen.html

    I like the 52s as well, and I'm not crazy about the look of that Yota rim. It looks too "stock". I like more of the 4x4 look

    ohhhhh that makes more sense lol.
    Uh uh uh, not so fast.
    Gotta wait for the day-TW surfin' crowd to get their votes in.
    My next dilemma will be 32 or 33 BFG All-Terrains :rolleyes:

    Me too :goingcrazy:

    Will probably go with 32 since I can't afford to regear and don't want to turn the truck into a turd

    I would avoid the center caps on the 7069. I've already had to replace too because they will come out/ chip paint/ and the very center part will get all melted.

    Two* and this was on my rims which are 3 years old now, so I suppose they could have upgraded them

    Hm, yeah that's what I was gonna start researching, you lose that much power with 33s huh?


    Replace two center caps? I feel like it would look pretty good without center caps as well..?

    I'm also curious as to what the center caps alone will set me back if I do so happen to go with the 7069s?

    And lastly... how the heck do they melt?

    Consensus seems to be it sucks with a standard. It's somewhat better with the auto. Most folks seems to agree there's not a big difference going 265/75r16 or 235/85r16 (just shy of 32") from stock. That's what I'm leaning towards doing.

    Well that's no bueno considering I have a 5-speed.
    Those are pretty much identical tires except the 265s are 1.18" wider.

    So why not just go with the 265s since those seem to be a more widely used tire?

    Happy to help :cheers:

    Some folks don't like the pizza cutter look. 235/85's are what i am probably going to put on my truck once my current tires wear out. Think 255/85r16's will be too much without a regear.

    Don't get me wrong, I do like certain stock rims, I would hunt these ones down and do the same as this guy with the gunmetal grey:

    What's involved in a regear? Sounds like more of a PITA than it's worth...

    In short: it will cost you $500 - $1500 depending on deals / if you do it yourself / etc. Personally, I am handy and have done every form of regular yota maintenance, but i think a regear is beyond my skill-level. YMMV
