    ^^ +1... Maybe have her park in a "bad" neighborhood a few times and see if the wheels mysteriously come up missing. You know the new "teflon" coated "darker" color wheels are much easier to clean honey... ;)

    Good point! thinking....thinking.... :confused:
    The photoshop is a good idea, a visual is always better. Also check out Tirerack, they will let you "view" the wheels on your ride.

    The place I bought my Taco from also had a new "shop vehicle" FJ... looks killer, they painted the roof to match and put a lift/tire/wheel package on it.
