    Ok guys I am going to buy wheels and tire this week. I need advise on what size to go with. I have 2" front leveling kit with rear tsb done. Sits pretty level.
    16x8 with a 265/75r16 or
    17x9 with a 265/70r17. Here are the wheels. Tires will be cooper sst's.
    I think this will look good on a Speedway Blue Taco. What size guys?

    I would go with the 16" wheels.... offroad wheels IMO are supposed to be small with lots of rubber!!

    depends on where you drive it. if you go off road then the 16's will be less susceptible to damage and can be aired down more, but the 17's will be slightly less sidewall and make it handle a little better on the road.

    +1. I always liked less wheel and more tire.

    If I could put 15s on my '09, I would.
