    Here are my Method NV's. I did remove the gold colored hex bolts and replaced them with stainless button heads. They match my paint much better.

    That is a very clean wheel and wheel well. Very clean. Hard work keeping stuff clean pays off 15 years down the road. Looks sharp:cool:

    The grill is from Grill Craft. It is far more durable than the OEM section it replaces.

    Those silver screw heads definitely look better than the gold would've on your rig

    Apologies if this one has been mentioned in this thread already, but I musta missed it. The old Expeditions West Tacoma is pretty well known in some circles, and has been talked about here before. It was owned for a time by a friend of mine who sent me some images. I always liked those Performance Wheels Outback TX 1 wheels on that truck. They're long out of production, alas.

    And here's another rerun fershure, but a different view to help people visualize this common combination. When I replaced my 2001 DC with a white 2003 DC a year and a half ago it came with 17" FJ Cruiser wheels. Those went on the 2001 when it was sold and the stock wheels with my 235/85-16 BFG AT KOs went on the white truck.

    Switched to 15x8 recently! Had two other wheels in 17s (TRD and F5's) but I wasnt happy about the fitment on our 1st gens.

    Mostly stock looking.
    How bad do they rub when the tires stuffed? Did you do a bunch of trimming?
    Looks awesome!

    Thanks! No trimming at all, but they rub at full lock against the frame.
