    Contemplating blowing my tax return on a set of wheels and tires...

    Got a RRed DC LB that I thought these would work well with. Currently sitting on stock suspension though. Was originally thinking I'd go with 18's, as I just don't offroad much (or at all, yet) but I'm thinking everyone here may have convinced me to get 17's.

    What do you think? Will the red trim here match the truck well? The truck's in sad shape right now... good thing spring detailing is coming up in a few weeks

    I think 17" is too big for 1st gen Tacoma's. Looks funny in my opinion.

    umm.... not first gen... '06

    I know I didn't say which I had (and I see you've got a 97 so I can see where your line of thought came from) but it does say what year I've got in the left hand column (06 DC LB 4x4)
