    just ranting if anyone cares to listen...

    after hrs of looking at websites for wheels, pictures here on TW, other Taco forums, hrs upon hrs, my picky self had finally settled on a wheel for the rig. What? out of stock? what, no production date? what it could be months or maybe out of production? what!!!!

    I really like the Black Rhino Ocotillo in matte black, but they're gone!! i don't like most of the 17" wheels out there, too many fake rivets, useless add-on bolts that are non-functional, too many ridges and lips on the rims, too much chrome, or just too plain. yes, i'm picky.

    darn you black rhino!! ok, i'm done.:mad:

    checked out the Gear Alloys. they have those multiple ridges and lips, edges everywhere that i'm not really into. i prefer clean wheels, with very few curves edges ridges, more like what some would consider a car or "ricer" wheel. thanks for that suggestion though.

    pain yes. the worst part is when the website says, "In stock" or "20 available" but when you call they so out of stock. come on, people, be honest and stop wasting my time!

    Same thing happened to me when I first bought my SAAB - I wanted the BBS wheels that came on the Aero versions of my model year 9-5... the only problem is they were discontinued years before and the lowest I could find a set was for $1200. Fuck that! I never ended up finding a decently priced set.

    In my head I imagine finding a set of the FJ cruiser (TRD?) wheels, the blocky 6-spoke ones, and powder coating them gunmetal for the truck I'll eventually get. That is as ideal a wheel as you can put on a Tacoma if you ask me...

    EDIT: I have similar tastes in wheels as you OP. I like them distictive without being flashy, without too much contrast to distract the eye. You should check out the FJ rims I was talking about. They're amazing.

    I have quite a bit of rubbing with them how about you? I have done some good amount of chopping and in reverse or a bump while braking while I turn.

    What size tires you have? I did have rubbing, like you in reverse at full turn. Just cut out all the plastic fender liner up front and problem solved. Trimmed my actual fenders corners as well

    I think rubbing in full lock reverse is almost "normal." Heck my stock truck rubs when in reverse full lock and if I hit a speed bump at the same time.

    The Konig's are okay. But just a bit too plain for that much money.

    I'm gonna hold out and pray that the Ocotillo's come back in stock.
    OR my second choice was the new American Racing Circuit wheel. But that's only in an 18" and the hub bore may be too small. I dont really want to go 18" though just for a wheel. Oh boy.

    Thanks. I tried them. No go. I need: 17x9, 6-139.7, -12mm offset.

    Just about everybody lists them as "In Stock" online. But when you call, they have to check inventory with the distributor (Black Rhino), who doesn't have them in stock. I wish these guys would be more accurate in their posted inventory.

    The bolts are fine but the inner 6 bolts area around the hub rusted a bit.

    Everywhere was sold out of wheels when I finally found the set I wanted.

    Had to wait awhile but I'm glad I did!

    ARRRRRRGGGG! I finally settled on a different set, the Fuel Boost black wheels. After the distributor telling me they can drill out the hub bore to make it fit, I thought cool. I went to place my order, now they tell me they can't recommend drilling them out.

    Out of stock......AGAIN! Dang it!!!

    ranting again........
