    Has anyone put V-TEC Off-Road Wheels Brutal (Style 392) on their Tacoma? They look real good and are reasonably priced but I don't know about the quality. Any advice?

    I can't say anything specifically for the V-tec Brutal, but I have the V-tec Offroads in the same color scheme and they have held up very well for the past 2 years I have had them on.

    No complaints here for V-tec quality.

    I have v-tec black raptors on mine and i think they look awesome. depending on what color your rig is, they have chrome, black and gun metal. i personally think they look better than the off-roads; especially if you get 17 or 18"

    and i think v-tec makes a quality wheel. i also have worked at discount tire in the past and continue to get my wheels and tires through them. they usually have tons of v-tecs in stock and when i worked there nobody; customers or employees had anything bad to say about the brand

    Thanks for the feedback. I definitely think I'll go with V-Tec but I found the black Assassins that I like even better. I have the base Tacoma and wonder if the 8.5 might be too wide for it?

    if you like a rounded look to your wheels then the assassins. i personally dont like that style; thats why i did the raptors and i dont really like a mix of chrome and black too much either. but i know what you mean! there are so many choices! I was just talking to someone on here about the MB TKO's. you outta look those up too. $110/wheel at discount tire. they look a lot like the XD Monsters
