    Hello fellow Canucks,

    Just got an 09 Double Cab TRD a few weeks ago and one of the first things I did was look for a good Tacoma forum. I was happy to see TW even has a regional forum for us Canadians!

    I am starting to look for wheels/rims for a winter setup. I like the look of the 17" TRD wheels and would like something similar. Anyone have something for sale or know where I can get something locally? I browsed through the "sale" part of TW and there are lots of rims for sale, unfortunately they are all in the US.

    Also, does anyone know of an honest and knowledgeable mechanic/service center in Ottawa. I'm not a DIY but I hate taking my car to the dealerships.

    Thanks in advance!
    Wally

    welcome to tw :wave:

    you can find the stock 17" rims come up for sale fairly often on kijiji, especially in ottawa for some reason. :)

    Thanks for the warm welcome and headsup. I will make sure to keep a second browser tab logged into my TD account so if my wife comes around I'll switch to that tab and tell her I'm looking into our finances! :)
