    My Pyrite Mica tacoma is being delivered in about a week and I havent seen very many out there with aftermarket wheels yet. I have 3 different color choices in mind and a specific wheel in each color, but I dont wanna give my specific wheel ideas away so I will just list the colors. Which of these 3 would you prefer?

    Black - The pyrite and black would offset each other very well and would have somewhat of a military look to it.

    Bronze - Bronze goes almost perfectly with this color. With the right mods it could definitely be an eye catcher.

    Polished w/ Red Beadlock - I have thought long and hard about this one. I think the polished wheels would definitely help the truck stand out, while the red beadlock rings would match the red TRD bedside decal. It would be a different look and would stand out from the crowd.


    Thanks in advance for your opinions. This is a tough choice for me and all 3 choices have there pros and cons. Lets see what you guys think...

    red beadlock sounds awsome, especially like you said to compliment the trd decals. i love how that little bit of red pops with the pyrite mica color! even better would be black with red beadlocks! :drool::drool::drool::drool::drool: but anyway will look good as long as you like it!!!

    Not to jack your thread, but any ideas about where to find black wheels with red beadlocks?

    i agree with both of you guys about the red beadlock idea. trust me i do!! that was my number 1 choice until a guy i know went out and purchased the EXACT wheels, lift and tires i told him i was getting, and then put all of it on his tacoma.....i was slightly pissed lol. :fenforcer:

    its still my favorite but since he is a member of the car crew i used to be a member of, i dont want everyone thinking i copied his ideas. it sucks.

    you will more than likely have to buy a polished set and then paint them black.

    take some spraypaint and acciddently change the color of his wheels :) then put yours on...no but i think anything you put on will look good. i love that color i wish i waited for the 09's before i bought mine :mad:. cant wait to see some pics!

    These are the only black and red wheels I can find. I really want to do black and red on my truck but would like to see some other options. Have you found any others?

    none so far. you are probably better off getting the wheels you want the most and then painting them to look the way you want.

    the ones in that pic would probably look best on a white or black tacoma.

    Too many black wheels out there. Bronze would look awesome.
