    Anyone have these? I searched and couldn't find anything. I think I will be ordering them tomorrow, but just wanted to see if anyone had installation issues, balancing issues, or any unforeseen problems with these wheels on your Tacoma? Thanks in advance.

    Just make sure you get the correct offsets and backspacing.

    Thanks Dan. Ordering from Discount Tire, so I'll pay close attention to what they suggest. I know that 4.5 seems to be fairly common and had that on my last set, so I am hoping they have them in that backspace.

    Nice! What size are you going with?

    Yeah, I agree. Don't like the name.... I heard too many problems with the Procomp 7089's and these look identical (except the name).

    Looks good! What size and backspace -offset are you running?

    Yeah, it's like they both went to the same Chinese mfr, but tried to differentiate their products by putting dimples in various places...

    the V techs are not ridiculously expensive either.
    I think they are decent looking wheels. The comparison to the pro comp is spot on. The price being a big difference though

    I think they were mainly quality control issues...

    Some people can get the center caps to fit, some can't.. some clear the brake caliper, some don't. Ordering seems to be an ordeal.. and a few other things I am forgetting at the moment.

    Looks good! I would go with the slightly different design, but your setup looks awesome.

    I have the vtec offroads (black and silver color scheme, not all black) and I've had no issues. I've had them for a year now and they still look brand new.
