Default was no more 80 rims... turned into design RTT support for a topper

I went back to stock rims on the Taco. Main reason is my Tundra calipers are just way bigger than the stock ones, and the clearance was just too tight for my liking. The stock rims provide more clearance for some reason also the 7" rim seems to sit better with my 10" wide tires, the 8" rim and 10" tire just didn't provide much of a bulge, if you know what I mean..


Anyway here's a before and after pic, for the sake of chat. Not sure if I want to paint these stockers black, or leave them alone, I'm going to leave them alone for a while I kind of like the change, though others in the house have now come out to say they actually prefer black rims..

what do you think?

And notice how much snow melted between the before and after... today I learned that Saturday afternoon after a big snow is probably not the best time to drop in on Discount Tire... 3 hour turnaroud time



edit: oh and yes, the 80 rims are available. http://www.risingsun4x4club.org/foru...ad.php?t=11247

I like the silver with the stock bumpers, but if you put an ARB or soemthing else on there, I think the all stealth black rims would look better.

What kind of topper, Tim? ARE?? I just called Suburban toppers about trading my current top towards an ARE CX with a rack and windoors.
