    thinking of getting rid of the stock 16" steels. I recently got the rear tsb on my 09 BSP AC, and will soon be picking up some 5100's to level her off. My when upgarding wheels, should go with 17"s or stay with 16"s?

    any advantage to 17's?

    I plan on picking up some BFG T/A'a too.

    any suggestions for a nice black wheel? or should i go with chrome?

    what do you guys think looks best on a black truck. I see a lot of black wheels on TW.

    feel free to post up pics of your setup!


    ps- they don't make 265-75-17's right? i'd need 265/70/17?

    Myself, I prefer 16's because 15's don't fit. And chrome or polished aluminum finish. But Hey!! Thats just me. You also go back to the days of your youth.

    Its not that you prefer 16s over 15s it's that you have no choice in the matter :laugh:

    My best advice, just search and keep searching until you see the ones that say to you, "Those are the ones for me".

    These were my first love. You just cannot fit a 15x10 wheel on a Tacoma. And the 16x8s don't look right.

    Put these on a Black 4x4 and there is nothing better IMHO.
