    Bilstien 5100's all around, OME 885 coils, AAL, Total Chaos UCA's
    Got a 3" lift (bilstien 5100's front and back + 1/2 inch spacer and add a leafs in the back).

    Trying to figure out what size wheel to get with this, I was told a 17x9 would stick out to much?

    I kind of like these but I have no idea which offset and backside is right. Seems to be a lot of bolt options to. I just have the regular 6 lug set up now. I'd like to get the most lift possible out of the wheel/tire combinations I can.

    Also what do you think of these pro comps, or these kmc addicts.

    How much trouble did you have fitting Those rims on your truck? How much cutting trimming did you have to do? Mine is pretty much stock now. I'm trying to get 285/70/17 tires with 17*9s rims with a 3" OME Lift, What do you think?

    I love those wheels (ATX Thugs). The 17" will be fine, I see a 2nd gen Tacoma in my town that has these wheels in 17x8.5 and they look good.

    BTW, the cheapest place I found them was here: http://www.wheelandtirecombos.com/wheels/americanracing/thug-teflon.htm

    I have the OME 3" lift and put the thugs (17s) on...I had to do some very minor trimming but other than that they've worked out well
