Ok so from my last thread, I put the 3 inch frt lift on and it measured level from ground to fender well but never looked level. Trucks should have a little rake to them or they look weird. So, I got a set of Rough Country 1.5'' blocks off ebay for 59.99 shipped.

now i love the stance. has a slight rake, not as much as stock, and i like the height.








ok so now my question.

Should i leave the wheels as is....or....

1. get the DC-1 dick cepek chrome wheels
2. get some black wheels
3. keep the TRDs and turn the letters to the inside.




I really like the look of the white letters as it is right now so even if you suggest #3 i aint gonna do it haha.

But the tires are new, so I am not going to go to 20s or anything, going to keep these tires. Chrome wheels i think would look good with the little bit of chrome stuff ive put on it. The DC wheels that are on sale right now and discussed in the other threads are really the only thing in the budget right now....i would prefer a different style but i doubt i'll ever get around to justifying twice as much for chrome wheels to myself or my wife...

suggestions? opinions?

Looks great! Not sure about the wheels since you aren't going to 20s, but I would totally stick with the tires/lettering the way it is. You hit the nail on the head with regard to having a slight rake... I'm worried about having to lift my truck to fit a 34" tire and I want it to still retain at least some rake to it, but worried that I may loose that even with adding the rear blocks.
Height looks good too and the tires look like they fit the wheel wells nice! Congrats!

I think your truck looks good as-is. Why spend money on some DC wheels if they are not ultimately what you really want?

To start off, I think your truck looks great! Now to answer your questions with my opinion:

1. No.
2. No.
3. Yes keep the TRDs, but leave the white walls out. Run them normally until they're low, then get a different set of tires and you can run blackwalls then. :D

No on the DC-1 wheels, they look cheap to me, no offense to anyone that runs them, just my opinion. No on the black wheels, you have too much chrome and it won't look right IMO. And YES you should flip the white walls. It's not 1990 anymore. Sorry, just a little dig for all the digs you dish out!! ;)

I like whitewall out on the BFGs. I think they look good out on the Toyos too. Keep the wheels.

OK. glad to see someone else thinks the DC1s look kinda cheap too. that was my comment in that thread. i think my big deal is i just dont want to have it stock hahahaha. i would like chrome wheels cause i like em...but i dont think it bugs me enough. i like the offset and fit of these. i did see a seller on ebay selling chromed TRDs now...wish i could see those on a truck...but i doubt i'd spend the moeny for that either. and i think the white letters do look good with the stock wheels. i think they would look funny on an aftermarket wheel though...weird.

ok..so i leave it as is.

the other thing i am thinking is, selling my OEM running boards and getting some stainles or chrome nerf bar style ones...the OEM ones look good to me but the rubber surface is impossible to clean...it always looks like it is dirty...bugs the sh!t out of me. plus the plastic end caps started fading a bit...i dunno....really the only way id do black wheels is if they had a polished or chrome lip and center but i think the rest of the gaudy chrome i have kinda mandates machined or chrome wheels. and i think my TRDs are a little more shiny than they were stock since they were refinished after the keying incident...they actually shine up very well, hard to see in the pic. i do not remember them being that shiny before but who knows.

Looks good. I've always thought the lettering looks good on stock rims. Thats how I have mine.

Take it from me...I blew a bunch of money on aftermarket wheels, and realized I wanted to go back to OEM ones. If anything, move to the 20s if you'd like something different. The platinum wheels have a machined finish that is very similar to the TRD wheels.
