    I just purchased a 2006 Radiant Red DC Sport and I want to get some flat black wheels for it. I have a few ideas in mind but I wanted to get your opinions. Must be a 16" wheel because I am planning on getting 265/75/16 General Grabber AT2 Tires.

    KMC Enduro

    Pro Comp 7028 (I don't really like the silver bolts all the way around the lip)

    [​IMG]

    Or something like the Mickey Thompson Classic Locks with Red Beadlock Ring
    (Do not want to spend more than 700 shipped so this option probably wont work.)

    [​IMG]

    Or the new TRD Beadlock wheels powder coated like this.

    didnt see the size in the first post... probably the trd's so you dont have to buy new lugs... they will be easy to clean too

    i just put yoko geolandar a/t-s on my doublecab. was going to put thegrabbers on untill i heard they have a nasty way of chopping quickly. the yokos are a littl quieter too. 80mph on the highway and not much noise over stock dunlops

    the edges of the front tires wearing unevenly after 2k miles... you have to rotatethem every 1500+ miles... at least that is the general concensus when i spent a month picking out th tires i got. i like the grabbers dont get me wrong but i happened to see them on my good friends f-150 after 3k and they were bad... the lugs on the shoulder were all over the place hi-lo hi-lo... if you have the time to rotate tiresi'd say get them if you really like them but i have my yokos and no probs even wear and quiet quiet quiet. make sure you get the correct load rating too... it will affect your ride quite a bit. and i know everyone is going to say y friends truck must be out of alignment or the tires should be balanced but he had the truck aligned when he got the tires put on at the dealership... so take what you may from it and ask anyopne you see in parking lots with the tires you like on their rigs how they like their tires.. best way to get info from someone who isn't going to make a comission off the sale

    they were mounted 3 months ago... i belive the were the at2's... ifyou like them get them just ask around first...and be ready to rotate frequently... not that like its a bad habit to do... just not fun to do that frequently... ask people u know that have them and people u see in lots with them.. then you can see the wear patterns.. i spent hours looking at tires online then finally just started approaching people when i was gettin gas and such that had the tires i wanted and asked their opinion..ifyou ask someone at a tire shop they just sell you on whatever they will make the most money on that day,.

    also find a tire shop that matches online prices and have them do the tires... easier if you have any problems and you can inspect the tires for issues before they mount/ ship them

    I would love to get those but I was just doing some math and they are like $210 per wheel + shipping (maybe $200) + powdercoating ($200)

    Totals up to: $1,240

    That is double what I can get the Konig Countersteers for.
