    So I wanted new tires, but couldn't go that big since I actually have to use my truck to commute quite a distance every day (DC Capital Beltway can be rough).

    Tires:
    I ended up going with the BFG 265/70R17 I like them and they are doing really well on the highway and recent snow we had (snow = the reason why my truck is looking a little rough.

    Rims:
    So I was looking ALL over the place - to include all these forums - and I could Not find a set of rims I fell in love with. Since I picked up new tires, I didn't want to look like every other Taco on the road with stock rims. So I changed the center caps to the TRD ones. I like the look of these a lot better and it only cost 40 bucks to mod.

    Depending on weather, I'll get her clean this weekend and take some better pictures.

    Thanks!
    I picked them up at toyotapartszone.com

    Part number - PTR20-35081TRD

    Even though I have 17 inch rims, these 16 inch center caps fit GREAT. (got the idea off of someone on this forum)

    Hey OP, those are sweet the tires and c caps that is. Are you sure they those bfg are 265/75/17? I couldn't find that size on discounttire.com. Also I think you should paint match the sport wheel to the TRD c caps. There's a few member on here that have done it and it looks sweet.

    I have the exact same rims, same tire size, (I have the stock Bridgestones), but I noticed how your rims are nice and shinny, my rims look dull, but its in the middle of winter, can't really clean them now.
    Question? Will those rims shine up like yours? Is there a clear paint coating on the rims? What do you use to shine them up with?
    Your truck looks good

    They shouldn't rub. Thats usually as big as you can go on stock suspension.

    Looks good, I know it must be minimal but did it change your mpg's much/any? I want some "real" tires on mine too. One reason I wanted the off road instead of the sport.
