    Ha WHY would you get 20" rims? Tires for those would be much more expensive, not to mention it'd look mad funny inside a little Tacoma wheel well.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    I got 15"x10" with a 4.5" back spacing and a -44mm offset.

    I wouldn't get 20's on a 1st gen it would look funny unless you had a 5 lugger dropped.

    Dropped 5 luggers look just as weird.

    BFG AT tires are the tried and true ones to get, I have a pair and they work pretty well, but are not perfect.

    I have Nankang Mudstars as well and they're pretty great too.

    Well that depends on your taste. I personally like wide tires with a lot of side wall so I went with 33"x12.5"X15" My tires come in tomorrow I'll post some pics of the truck.

    But it's really your choice buy what you want but I'll tell you now you buy 20's for a 1st Gen and post pics on this site your not going to like the comments you get about your truck.

    Are your tires bald? Do you even need to buy new ones or is the money just burning a hole in your pocket?
