    need some help on what wheels would be best searched for a while and i have it narrowed down. I have 1.25" spidertrax spacers right now and i like how they sit. I think i need something around a 4" backspacing to keep the same look. Also i have 285's with billies at 2.5". And im getting eibach's in a couple of weeks.

    let me know what you think

    1) mickey thompson classic lock black
    16x8, 4"bs -12mm offset
    [​IMG]

    2) Pro comp 7069
    16x8 4"bs -12mm offset
    [​IMG]

    3)mickey thompson classicII black
    16x8 either 4.437"bs or 3.625"bs

    let me know what you think! post up some other wheels if you have suggestions as well

    Indiana, you dont wanna come here.
    Vehicle:
    01 TRD xtracab, lifted, sitting on dem dirty turty trees, actually they are clean.
    Stuff. Things as well. I like putting these on instead of those. You know, for likes.
    I voted for number 1 for a few reasons.

    1. I like the bead lock look.
    2. I want this wheel myself.
    3. The holes are bigger, which I feel looks better than the pro comps.


    My second choice would be number 2 (pro comps), and actually would come down to pricing.

    I can tell you the mickey thompson classic ii's with 4" backspacing will not clear the brake caliper on a second gen taco. You have to get the 3.625" backspacing. Ask me how I know.

    Cool. I hadn't seen them on a Tacoma either so I thought what the hell...

    I love them and you can get different outer rings if you want in different colors, like red, blue, gold, polished, or black. They come with black like you see on mine.

    The classic IIs have always been my favorite aftermarket wheel. However I do not like simulocks. Blech.

    go with the classic lock's. i did and i mounted up 285/70/17's. they look fantastic and m/t makes the outer ring in about 8 colors if you want to switch them out. I'm gonna pick up a set of red ones for the black wheels on a mag gray dc sport. :cool:
