    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:

    Pro Comp 52 Rock Crawlers

    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

    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?

    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?

    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...

    Ya, the center caps come as a cylinder with the little end cap attached. Sorry it's a little hard to describe. I already had all my center caps on so I was too lazy to take all the tires off and take them out. But it might look good without them. The thing that get lost are the very end pieces that snap in. The pieces that have paint come off them are the center cap cylinder, as they are just painted black.

    The part that I said melts is the little procomp logo part, it has a clear softer plastic in front of it and one of my rims had that piece kind of deform and get cloudy. Not sure what happened but it looks like crap.

    The center caps are the only thing that I've had go wrong with my rims so I mean I'm sure you would be fine if you just left them off. I have the 7089's by the way.

    I can kinda see what you're talking about in the original post picture. The smaller circle inside of the center cap that has "Xtreme...blah blah blah" on it right?

    Isn't that something you can repaint or rattle can bed line it once it starts looking like crap?

    Im definitely a fan of the 7069's. But they were my second choice. I originally wanted the Pro Comp 5001's
    [​IMG]

    But the lowest bs I could find was 4.5 and I wanted 4" bs. So I went with the 7069's

    As far as the center caps, I have had no issue so far. But I have heard of other with that issue. A friend of mine called ProComp and they sent him 4 brand new center caps after he had an issue with 1 of them. Since then, he haas has no issues.

    With my stock 4.10 gearing, I really didn't feel much of a power loss when I went to 285's.

    Yeah those are pretty sweet wheels as well, I just like the bullet hole look to these rims. Pro Comp sending your friend new center caps is good to know in case mine fizzle out

    They are matte gunmetal and they come that color. Vin over at SCS has a few diff colors. I didn't see that you were asking for "Pro Comp" suggestions only....sorry.

    And thanks, I like them.
