    What do you guys think? Would this setup look good on a Tacoma?

    They're off road wheels. That has been and will be the style for like 20 more years.

    I wouldn't even call those oldschool. Not a fan of the polished aluminum...but they would look good.


    Are those eagle alloys? I have very similar looking rims except mine aren't polished.

    best picture I have of them on my truck:

    That's a classic look. A wheel and tire combo like that will always look good.

    Old school chrome steelies... classic look. Cheap & effective. I've always liked the ones with the black centers.

    I honestly cannot STAND black wheels on anything but a Jeep (sorry everyone!), but that actually looks really good!

    I'm not sure what brand they are. They are for sale in my area, wheel and tire package for $495. I'm thinking about buying them because the tires look like they still have pretty good tread, and I like the wheels

    What brand are those wheels? I've looked for them forever!! They must not be made anymore?

    Those are also the wheels that were on the black '85 'Back to the Future' Toyota pickup
