    So right now I have Icon CO on my 06 Tacoma 4x4 (other mods too) set at 2.5". I finally have some money that's burning a hole in my wallet. There's a guy that comes into my work all the time and he has a set of American Racing Chamber wheels (http://www.americanracing.com/browse_atx.asp) with Cooper discover St tires in a 285/75/r16 with less than 500 miles on them (they definitley look that way too) for $800. I know I am going to do both mods but which would be better to do first?

    What is your alignment like? I have my truck at 2.5" and my alignment is good enough for me, as I have caster of 1.9/ 2.0 which was almost exactly what it was at before my lift (2.1/ 2.2). Drives the same from what I can tell. If your happy with your alignment, then I'd say wheels...

    Your alignment should be fine. Do the wheels and tires.
