    Took over lease on an '06 Dbl Cab 4x4 2 months back and decided that due to good reliability and needing a slightly smaller truck than domestic, I went with a Tacoma. Test drove the new one and didn't want to lock in on 4 years of a lease so went the takeover route.
    Work quite a bit and finally got a chance to go camping/road trip with this truck the past week. Pre-ordered some new wheels and tires for this baby and got them put on this morning. Wow what a change!! Went from the stock 245/75/R16 to some Yok Geolander 265/60/R18's on KMC Spys 18x8.5 without having to lift the truck. Got the package ($2300) at KalTire and Eric over there is giving me 30 day satisfaction on the tires. He says if I want to go bigger and do a suspension lift, he would let me hand back the tires and pay $800 to get the lift plus difference in tire price to get what I want.

    Wow, that didn't take long about the Oilers suck comment!!! lol thanks for the comps on the wheels, wasn't really sure about them when looking at the sample on the shelf but they do make the truck look really good now. And the fact that the KalTire guy gave me a 30 day Sat. G'tee made it easy for me to buy.
