    I have a 2006 trd sport with 4x4 and I want to put some flat black rims on her and some tires, around 30-32 inches. Any suggestions?


    I live in Southern California so it is pretty dry out here, just going to be drifting around in dust pits and romping some loose trails.

    Well looks like you do know where to begin cuz this place will give you all the answers and pics for pretty much everything. Flat black is very popular amongst fellow TW members. First decide what size wheel. 16" or 17" would be recomended. With 16" a 265/65/16 tire will yield right around 32" overall diameter with 17" go with 265/70/17 for 32" overall diameter. Any bigger and you will want a lift. The sizes mentioned look best on stock suspension IMO .

    ATX wheels are pretty popular, You can always just powdercoat your stock wheels too. 33" tires and i think you have to lift your truck, But im sure your wanting to do that no matter what haha

    Yeah I eventually want a Brenthel long travel kit but that won't be happening for awhile. So for now just big tires for more clearance, so to be correct, 32'' is the biggest i can go without rubbing?

    A 32" tire can deflate more on a 16" rim as opposed to a 17" rim

    Alot of cheap mods you can do as well such as the Black Headlight Mod, Foglight anytime mod, painted lower valence (plasti-derp wha?), and window tint. All these cheap mods will really set your truck off from the everyday tacoma!

    I might add the Satoshi mod is pretty cheap as well, but not for the faint of heart unless you have a spare grill.

    265/75/16s will fit fine on stock wheels. I will put them on mine and maybe upgrade my wheels later. You can always have them remounted on new wheels.

    I also want to mount more lights to my truck because it gets hard to see clearly when it is super dark in the middle of my canyon and all i have are stock lights. Do i need a skid plate to mount the lights to?? or what could I mount them to??

    Stock! For now!!
    I agree with the guy suggesting the Dynapro ATM's. I have the Dynapro MTs and I live here in socal (Rancho Cucamonga) and they are awesome! I go off roading in nearby areas and big bear and they wear well. But my buddy has the ATM's and they are a great tire.

    Not enough meat on that tire for me :) If you want ATs, have you looked at Terra Grapplers, everyone I know who has em loves em.
