    The TRD rims look better on that set-up IMO. Go for it!

    If u a baller... option A

    If you want cleaner look... option B

    Neither looks bad. But that's because you have a 1st Gen, nothing can look bad!

    Well if you like wheeling, id take the TRDs. They look good, plus smaller rim so tires will be cheaper too

    Haha proof those are mall crawler wheels. I would trade those things straight up...I don't like the look of them at all. But since you'd get 400 too? Hell, why wouldn't you?

    Plus...you wouldn't want to have a mall crawler would you?

    it may look like a mall crawler but it will still craw though any mud hole around here, i just don't like mudding that much because its hard to keep clean and it messes you truck up

    i think i would trade imo better off in the long run oem wheels. truck looks really good either way but in the end you have to be happy with it. im pretty sure the money is really not a factor in your decision because the next set of tire ur going to buy for xd s is not going to be cheap.if you really cant afford all that bling bling big balla wheels its agood op. to down size for a good deal ,see if he go $500 you never know......

    Hard to choose from both but to be honest ill keep the monsters on it, but change the tires to the goodyear wrangler duratrac's it will give your truck a more aggressive look. trust me i put them on my truck, same model and it really changed the look.
    LIKE I ALWAYS SAY... A TIRE SAYS EVERYTHING ABOUT A TRUCK

    wheels are one of the single biggest mods you can do to change the look of the vehicle...keep the monsters. They look good and they make your truck stand out, not just another 4x4 with stockers (which is what the trds look like)
