View Full Version : Which rims to get now?
11-01-2006, 12:37 AM
Recently got me some Michelin XLs, but now I need some 16" rims. I guess my first instinct would be to go with aluminum for the weight issue (those XLs are some heavy suckers), but anyone have some suggestions. One thing I'm gonna need is some negative offset, like -15 to -25.

What kind of vehicle are you putting the rims and tires on?

Rock Crawler go with steel. Anything else go with aluminum for weight. Unsprung weight is not your friend. Find a set of factory take off aluminums. You can usually find them pretty cheap.

Like Grim Reaper said, if it's a crawler, get some black steelies. Otherwise get some aluminum. I like my MT Classic II's. Relatively cheap ($120), light, and have a good offset (3 5/8") for the Tacomas.

Sorry, the vehicle is an '89 Hilux, so pretty much exactly like and '85 or older Toyota 4x4 from the frame south. I was looking at the MT Classic IIs, so far they are the lightest, strongest (load capacity is 3100lbs) and closest offset.
Thanks for the responses guys.
