    Ok, I finally got my new wheels on.

    They are Moto Metal 955 chrome. I know alot of people on here are not really into chrome wheels, white lettered tires or unlifted trucks but thats is exactly what I have now....LOL

    The wheels are 16x8 and the tires are Dueler AT Revo's 265/70/16.

    These wheels move the tire out 1 1/4", measured from frame to outside of tire with stock wheels and then measured in the same spot with the new wheels.

    Just so you guys will know. If you have to replace a air pressure sensor you will also have to make a trip to a Toyota dealer to have the new sensor programmed to your truck.

    Looks awesome! What's the backspacing on the wheel? I'm trying to find wheels that will push everything out farther exactly like yours! Just not into chrome as much for my (black) truck--though it looks awesome on your truck! Sets off the chrome around the grill perfectly.
