    I think the wheels on my truck are a pretty ugly. They look cool sometimes, but other times are just like.... bleh. maybe cause im moody.

    I thought the first two and the last one were pretty bitchin'


    I'd like bead locks, cause they look cool. Not because I need them, so wheels that have fake beed locks are an option...

    I'm pretty sure that what the guy replaced the stock wheels with are 15's, and I like how those look.

    What rims are pimp, and and could take abuse on the trails and such?

    Mickey Thompson puts out some rad rims. They will for sure be able to handle off roading.

    Spray paint your current wheels black. That's like emo/goth/pimp.

    Thats the best reason I've ever heard for not painting your trucks wheels.

    I like #2.

    The mid to late 80's Chevy 1/2 ton 4x4's and fullsize Blazers came with that type of aluminum wheel as an option, although they have a brushed aluminum finish, rather than mirrored. You could probably grab a set cheap from a junkyard, and they'll fit your Toyota.

    I can't speak for the Yoko Geo M/T or A/Ts but I have the H/T-S series on my Xterra. I'm almost at the end of their life and I will buy something different next time. They were just adequately grippy when I bought them and that didn't last long. I guess I'd be willing to try the A/Ts. I found myself slipping in the mud way too often with the H/T-S. Never got stuck but came close a couple of times. The tread is just not aggressive enough for anything muddy and the tread that they DO have wore down too quickly IMO. I may look into special-ordering the A/T-Ss if I can find some good reviews on them.

    Check out the Goodyear Wrangler MT/R. Aggressive like a Super Swamper but quieter and last longer.

    Mike... since your awesome...

    Have you ever delt with Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo

    I really like the thread design on them and reviews arent bad... but i think bridgestone has 4 threads not 6 layers...

    Do you know how much they last?

    I'll be using it onroad and offroad... on a jeep... and sometimes towing stuff... so the truck is pretty light (unless i am towing)

    They look nice, but I've never dealt with them, so I cant give any input on them. I surfed the site but couldn't find sidewall specs or tread specs (how many plies, etc)

    Find a Bridgestone dealer and ask what estimated tread life is, etc......

    Y'know Mike,

    Most 17 year olds (and no doubt many folks older than that) would be stoked to have had a car at all at your age.

    So embellish it all you want but remember you're better off than most as is.

    Just pointing that out. Someone should.
