    Hey everyone,

    After much debate I chose to hold off on the lift kit and A/T tires for my Taco. I kept my factory tires and went with a 17" aftermarket wheel. I went with the Liquid Metal Rhino wheel. I was nervous when I ordered them because I didn't know how they'd look. However, I personally think they look pretty good. They'll do for the time being. I am thinking of getting a leveling kit but haven't looked into it too much.

    Anyway, let me know what you guys think.

    ALSO, I am debating on whether or not to strip my emblems off and paint them black or if I should leave them chrome. I would like some opinions on that.

    Thanks

    I like your wheels, quite a bit. I know you said you're holding off on the A/T tires, but I'd step up that effort along with the lift. Your stock tires are just so... mild looking! They'll obviously do for the time being, but I would absolutely look to something more aggressive sooner vs. later.

    In my opinion, and I'll probably be in the minority here, leave the emblems alone. No need to change the look of something just for the sake of doing it. I think your pickup would be perfect with a ~3" lift, the wheels you've got and some Duratracs or BFGs.

    I talked about painting the emblems black earlier. However, after I took the emblems off, I sort of like the look of not having them. Therefore, I'll probably leave them off for the time being.

    Wheels wheels, we can't see the wheels. We've seen the truck. How about a simple straight-on shoot with in 2-4 feet of just wheels.


    :notsure:
