    I'm going to pick these rims up tomorrow for $800. The guys says they are in good shape with small scratches here and there, but no curb rash.

    I wanted black wheels for my truck but to get rims here in Hawaii I'd need to pay about $1200-$1300 for a decent set.

    So these are starting to grow on me and I think I'll buy them but I'm curious what you guys think about the style and pricing, please leave your opinions!

    I don't know the retail cost but you should do a little more research before spending $800. I found these -WHEELS- on eBay - similar for $550 new. To me, $800 seems high for these unless the tires are included.

    They remind me of the chrome wheels that come on the '12 tacomas. how much are they new? Do they come with the tires?

    I hear Ya! But because I live in Hawaii, shipping 4 rims will cost about $400-$500. So those $550 rims end up costing me about 1 grand PLUS I have dealt with getting the wrong parts shipped and in order to get them exchanged takes any where from 2 weeks to a month!

    I like the fact that I'll save a few hundred and that I can see them and test fit to make sure they are all good!

    The are $800 and do not come with any tires.

    What do you guys think about the way they look, yay or ney?

    You can save a lot of money by getting THESE. They might be a little small, but you can't beat the price. LOL.

    Seriously, I understand the difficulties of shipping to Hawaii but $800 seems high. I generally think used wheels/tires/mods/etc are worth 50-65% of the new cost, depending on condition. I would show the guy the eBay ad and tell him that you are not going to pay more than the wheels cost new.

    After thinking about it a bit more, I am not sure 10" width wheels will look/perform great on a Tacoma. They will either rub and/or stick out from the fenders. I have never researched it, but search and see how 10" width look and perform.
