    Hey guys.

    Picked up this 2014 Tacoma a few months ago and I really like the truck a lot. First thing I did was throw the bed cover on it and some step bars so the kids could get in and out a little easier. Next was a some tint on the front windows which I think made a big difference.

    Now I am starting to look into wheels.... I am sure wheels have been discussed millions of times but I just wanted to start my own thread on it.

    I dont mind the stock steel wheels but I would like to do something a little different with the wheels and tires. Just a slightly fuller look than how it sits now. I was not really wanting to lift the truck since it is not 4x4 but I could consider doing a very small lift if that was the only way to get just a tad more rubber under it. (My tires are the stock size 245/75R16)

    One of the guys at work has an older Tacoma and when he bought it, it already had a 2" lift and running 265/70R17 . I think his truck looks pretty good but again, I would prefer not to lift it.

    I am also looking for suggestions on rims. Seems like everyone runs black rims anymore and I guess considering my truck is dark color, maybe black would look pretty good on it.

    So what do you guys suggest for wheels and tire size? Lift or no lift? If you have pictures of a similar setup, please post them.

    Below are pictures of my truck and the one that sits at work.

    265/75R16 fit without lifting and fill in the wheel wells nicely.2017-11-08 10.47.31.jpg

    I think a carbon grey wheel would look great. Personal preference.

    Actually I was kind of thinking the same thing. A Carbon Grey might look pretty good on the truck. I kind of like the idea of black but the truck had some gloss black plastic wheel covers on it when I first got it. I took them off one day and thought the truck looked better with out them. So now I am kind of thinking something like that carbon grey might look pretty decent on it.

    I have also seen a couple of the same color Tacomas running around with the stock aluminum wheels and I actually didnt think they looked bad at all. So maybe a natural aluminum color would not be too bad.

    Its hard to decide. The truck is already dark so I dont know if I should stay with dark wheels or break it up with some Carbon Grey or aluminum.

    Tires.. Looks like the 265 might be the way to go.

    I'd have to see what those look like on a truck, but I dig the style and color. I'm not a huge fan of solid black on our color truck. Plus, I think black was the thing to do back in 2002 :crapstorm:

    I love bronze wheels, but I'm not sure it would look good on this color truck.

    Your steelie TPMS modules will not fit properly on alloy wheels, so you might be incurring additional costs there.

    Go with aluminum and run them in the spring , summer and fall. Use your steel ones for the winter.

    I kind of like that wheel but without seeing it on another truck, its hard to say. I do like the color of them.
