    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    DONT GET THE XTERRAINS! They look cool, but thats it. I had a friend with a set of 33's on a 4" lifted '95 toyota and they wore horribly and were almost bald at 25000 miles and they sucked pretty much everywhere I went 4wheelin with him. In snow and sand they were completely worthless!

    the Toyo m-55 it's not the most aggressive but my dad got 60000kms off them and that's on the roughest most savage roads you can think of. I ran them all winter (toyo open country MT in the summer) roughly 20000 kms and i still have 3/4 of my tread left... they are noisey on the highway though.

    None. Mickey Thompson ATZ's. :D Don't you hate when people do that?!? I love the look of those ATZ's though.

    As far as your 3, I guess it depends on what you're looking for. Are you gearing more towards an AT or a MT? Or is this a purely looks decision?

    I like the ATZ's too but i am getting the 285/70R17 size and i heard it looks different then the link you just showed me, not as aggressive?

    Wow, good to know. That's the exact size I was looking to get someday. Hmmmm. Time for some investigating. That'd suck if it was true.

    I just bought a 2009 base Tacoma 4x2 regular cab. I still have my 96 Tacoma with 238,000 miles, going strong, but starting to have a fair amount of frame rust. Anyway, I'm considering buying some chrome wheels and new tires. The stock tires are 215/70R15. I would like to go up two sizes to 235/70R15, anyone had problems jumping up two sizes? Also, any good internet sites to purchase new wheels?
