    BBS RW Truck wheels. The wheels in the picture are sized for 17". The wheels I would purchase are 18". I would keep tire size the same 265/65/18.

    Honestly, I dont think it looks good. And, I just dont like wheels over 17'' on a 4x4. But, it's really up to you if you like it or not.

    They only come in 18". When they were photoshopped they were made to fit directly over the stock wheels.

    I like that look personally. (spoke) Brighter wheels make the truck look cleaner. IMHO.
    But it depends on what you like?
    Either way it's gonna look good! It's a Tacoma!:D

    Really? Can you explain more?

    Well I was thinking if I don't like the look or in the future if I want to change I'll get them powdercoated and they will look like this...

    truck. they are bbs rd truck in 17". they are very rare.
    i ran across them on craigslist, by the time i sold the tires
    that came with them i have $235 in them. this is what
    they look like.

    I love those wheels. The local dealer had a truck with those wheels and I absolutely fell in love with them. They looked amazing.

    I like the silver/aluminum spoked rims over the black rims I noticed in your signature. The new [silver] wheels look sturdier than the black ones, which I think is important for a truck. I also think the silver/aluminum "pops" more with the blue than the black rims do.

    I think I'm gonna do it. They are much classier than the average pro comp, moto metal, or XD wheels.

    amen. plus they don't show dirt as bad as black wheels. that is what
    made me go that direction. i hate cleaning a car, 2 or 3 times a year
    is enough for me. as long as i keep the inside straight, that is all
    i care about.

    18's and up seem kind of silly on a 4x4. Don't you lose a lot of air down ability with low-profile tires? Unless you're trying to clear bigger brakes, I don't see the point. Function over looks.
