    Thanks.. unfortunately they only come in 17" or 20" from what I can find... so I think the 17" right? I first found these on an FJ, they were 20's looked great.. but Im not sure how they would look on the Tacoma. Not sure on suspension stuff yet, this was "supposed" to be my 3rd car, DD, etc. told wifey I wouldn't go "crazy" like usual!

    Yeah stick with 17s, personally I dont like trucks that get huge wheels that serve no purpose. 20s would be overkill IMO.

    Yeah true, or some sort of chrome and black combo. Hard to be original in this day with wheels so might as well get what you like right.

    My other choice I'm considering would be the BBS wheels like I had on my 07 FJ. Completely different direction

    Icon Coilovers, Downsouth UCAs, rear Icon "2.5" shocks and Toytec single AAL. Still gotta do exhaust, dark headlights and re-gear the rear diff.

    On a white truck, i would steer away from:
    1) chrome (way too 90s looking)
    2)silver (too washed-out looking against white IMO)
    in that order.

    I would first get a black wheel....either a good looking flat black wheel, or a gloss black.

    For me, I chose the gloss black (Hoss), but thats because i have a black truck (shiney black paint = shiney black wheels).

    Thanks for the input.. Thoughts on a compromise, maybe a metallic graphite colored wheel?

    I would go the BBS route. Nothing screams cheesy like those silver and black wheels that are played out.
