    Hey guys!

    New member here, finally pulled the trigger on a new Tacoma last night! Traded in my 2013 SRT8 Charger for it, got 3 tickets in the past 6 months so I really didn't have a choice according to my wife. I absolutley love it although it barely fits in my garage :)

    Anyways, I'm planning on getting a lift and putting on some new rims and tires this week. At they dealer they said I should do 3in in the back and 2.5 in the front, is that about par for the course?

    As for rims/tires, what size/brand should I be looking for? I would like to put 33in tires on it.

    So far I like these 2 on Amazon:

    http://www.amazon.com/Mayhem-Matte-Black-Wheel-12x135mm/dp/B004X5YAN6

    http://www.amazon.com/KMC-Wheels-XD-Series-Machined/dp/B0025KV2RI

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks guys! I am looking forward to being an active member on these forums.

    Now I must go say my goodbyes on my 2 favorite Charger forums.

    Cheers!

    Sounds right on the lift.
    There are so many different brands and everyone has there own opinions. Just stay away from spacer lifts.

    Icon, king, OME, toytec, deaver, dirt logic, sway a way. Are all good brands.
    As far as the wheels? The best ones are the ones YOU like.
