I found a great deal on a set of 17 x 9 wheels that will fit my 2008 Tundra. I am currently running 20's and it is supposed to have 18's. I figure a nice 285/70/17 tire would look great. What are the advantages/disadvantages of dropping??
besides lookin small and ugly? nothin...as long as its a TRD wheel that will actually fit....dont think theres much else besides that....do 18s and be done with it if u dont want the 20s. 17s just are too small for this truck. i know the larger sidewall for off roading blah blah.... they look silly.
They are Fuel Hostage wheels. The seller claims that the Tundra TRD's are listed as compatible. Now, I am worried though. Hmm. I would go with an 18 x 9 if I could find one that I could afford!! I just bought a set of Limited 18's in perfect shape. Guess I will have to sell them first. What should I ask for them? Then, my 20's?
Some 17" wheels will fit w/o issue. BF has a point, 17's can look small on the truck, but if you have a good deal in place and YOU like them, then go for it. They may have slight ride quality and offroad performance advantages... Tires tend to be less expensive, too. I'm about to switch from an 18" wheel to a 17" beadlock wheel - form follows function in my book.
Yes, but I think that they are specifically designed for the larger calipers...?? I went ahead and bought a set of 18x8's from the local salvage yard. They are not the limited edition's like my 20's but serviceable. I have been sand and painting all day to get them blacked out. They look pretty good now. Just letting them cure. I think I am gonna wrap them in some Dynapro ATM's 275/65/18's. Not really what I wanted but it will do for now.
