Get what you like. Wheels can get really expensive really quick and its easy to buy something and end up hating them. I have some 19" TRD's I'm selling right now if you want to go back to the old look. XXR's are cool too but it seems everyone wants or has them. Maybe that's just me though. Either way, if you like XXR's the best, go with those since they wheels you pick will be seen by you the most. I agree with Matt, 20's are fine but will make for a rough ride and limit drop potential. I went to 18's recently (AME wheels) because I didn't like the feel of the 19's and there are more tire options with 18's.

Make sure you love the wheels you buy. I'm on my 3rd set now...
wow, thats a lot of cash to burn. but i agree. do your research and love what you buy. hdwheels has a virtual app guide that you can put your car, color, tint, drop, everything on and just swap rims to see what they look like. thats at perfectlyround.com. also check out the list of vendors that i carry, http://ampedperformance.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=8 and lmk what you like. ill get you a better deal than the rim shops for sure. just trying to help you guys out!

18s are great, i have them on mine but the next set i get are gonna be some wide 17s, just becuase its easier if i get coilovrs or bags in the future. in my opinion, if your gonna go REAL low i would go with 17s or 18s, but then again its your car and your style so go with whatever makes YOU happy.:)

xb's I'm on same foot here, it seems a lot of xbs are on xxrs and so would it be nice to have 18s concave rims with either a 5 or 6 spoke rims with all black. i have the 2011 RS edition, I'm not sure whether to put mud flaps and window deflectors..any ideas from you guys...btw, I'm just starting to built the box not for racing for but head turner...thanks!

We have 19"' wheels on my son's 2008. Lowered on TRD springs. No rubbing....no problems.....love them.



Just get what you like cause you are going to be looking at them for a long time.

2011+ have two reflectors on the rear bumper. The are not my favorite either.

I think stance looks real nice in tC's but not so much on xB's. Also it has to be done really well of it looks silly. If you plan it do it, expect to blow through tires as well.

Yeah I am going thru the same staying up till 3 am rim shopping and driving my wife nuts phase.. I tanked an escalade and bought a flying toaster and I couldnt be more happier..

I want to run 20's but I dont want rubberband for tires or a wagon ride so I think I am going to stick with 19's. I like the look of the TRD lowering springs.. not to much but stlll gives it a decent drop.. Im older and dont care about tucking wheels. I lowrided for 10 years with Majestics CC out of LA and I am happy my insurance is low now because of no tickets
