    Just joined the forum the other day. Took my 2011 Tacoma home night before last and already have 200 miles on it. Even though I traded in a 4Runner that was almost the same thing, I can't get enough of the Tacoma. I appreciate all the information on here; I've spent quite a bit on here educating myself even before I bought it.

    I have a silver double cab and I plan on installing an ARB front and AllPro rear on it. Anyone have any good pics of rims that would look good on that color? I'm having a very difficult time finding something I like. Been thinking about the DC2's in black and silver. Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to TW! Great Site.

    DC2s aren't my cup of tea... but if you like em, go for it! I personally think black wheels look sick on a silver Taco.

    Gotta have some new rims... I've come to the conclusion that i'm gonna put either the Nitto's or the Dura Trac's on it. I just can't get right with the commitment that comes with buying rims.

    Nice looking truck. I have always been a fan of the hood scoop. Get ready to whip out the wallet haha

    I kinda pulled them off already. Wasn't real big on them from the start. I've taken all the badges off the rear as well. Probably going to replace them with black.
