I bought a set of these the other day for $400 wheels only. Debating on the tire size now. Anyone have any recommendations, opinions.

I've read 215/40/18 to maintain as close to stock with the speedometer, but not sure I want that size... the factory size from the tc wheels may be better... Thoughts opinions on the matter welcome. I'm new to the group. Cheers!

Welcome! That's a good size, it's very close to the stock rolling radius and just a little wider than stock for no problems with rubbing the fenders. If you wanted to go wider, you could instead go with 245/35/18, it will have the same rolling radius as the 215/40/18s would.

See the Size Comparer link at www.rimsntires.com to play with "what if" sizes and to get an idea of tires available in the size you want. Our stock tire size is 205/55/16 and our steel wheels have a 45mm offset. Have fun!

question for you.... i'm getting ready to have these put on now that I've purchased my tires... the stock wheels have lug nuts that don't fit the new wheels... did you purchase new lugs? I called toyota and they gave me a part number 90084-94001, and when i look online at some sites, the part number says it will not fit the '08 xb. Need some advice... It seems like that part number should do the trick, but just running into some mixed messages on varying sites. Any help would be appreciated.. thanks!

the TC wheels look fantastic on the XB!!!

Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession, but I have come to believe that it highly resembles the first.
