    Hey all, just picked up an 04 Tacoma last month.
    Pretty much wanted a Tacoma as long as I can remember, awesome truck so far.


    Anywho - it'll need tires sooner than later and I've been toying with the idea of picking up a set of wheels as well.
    I've been looking at the KMC enduros - I dig em, and always thought I'd want dark/black wheels, but the more I look at trucks my color (lunar mist I think?), I think a brushed aluminum would look good.

    I'm currently running Bridgestone duellers 265/70/16's - I wouldn't mind going up maybe a tire size. Looking at the Nitto Terra Grappler's.
    I'd like to stick with a 16" wheel, probably 16x8.

    Any suggestions? Pics are a big help. I've found a lot of pics, but truthfully am not that familiar with truck tire/wheel sizes - so if they arent listed, I have no idea what I'm looking at :confused:


    Thanks in advance..
    And an obligatory pic

    I don't really like the centercap - any other wheels like this (they also don't come in 17")?

    You could go up to 265 75 16 for tires. cheaper tires if you stay with 16'' wheels.

    Nothing wrong with the wheels you have, they look good on a silver Taco.
    Just put some more rubber on them. At least 265/75/16s.
    Mine with 255/85/16 BFG KM2s (33.3")

    How about these? They are available right now, no waiting. =)

    Gunmetal or matte black are both available. Made in Japan, name brand, brand new wheels.

    Weds Adventure Hase Spec wheels, 16x8" 0mm offset (4.5" back spacing).

    I can get you a really good deal on them too!
