After waiting years for Scion to come North to Canada I finally got my hands on a 2011 xB - Army Rock. The new boots are TSW Croft 17 X 8 (40 offset) with Falken Ziex ZE-912 rubber (225/45 X 17). I have had a TRD front tower brace and rear (anti) sway bar installed. I’ll probably wait a season and lower it next spring.

Comments welcomed!

Thanks BoxGT1... boots is more Canadian I guess (as in "It's snowing again... put your boots on!"). I'm going to give it one winter season with the factory rims and dedicated snow tires to see how it handles and then make a decision on lowering!

I hear you about the boots. I was up in Waterton N.P. back in June 2002. We got three feet of snow and everyone was stranded for several days. Funny thing though....I am Puerto Rican and was stationed here in Florida at the time so I came to Canada prepared. Your countrymen were in their Miatas and flip flops enjoying the "summer" weather when this storm came from out of nowhere. I had rented a 4-wheel drive so I was helping them out of the snow banks! Go figure. LOL!!!


It is a tough decision whether to lower it considering all the snow you guys get up in the North country. Regardless, your ride looks great....keep posting pics and stay well.

It was worth the long wait! I almost tried to bring one in a few years ago from Waite Toyota/Scion in Watertown but there was a lot of paperwork. There are always a few used ones around but the speedo's are in mph so again it's a bit of a hassle. Anyway, thanks again BamBam!

They look good, better than I would have suspected for the color.
(Polished rims, I mean, not the color itself)

Yeah, I have to agree, it does blend in . . .

Orginally,I wasn't shure about this color but after seeing these pic's I kind-a-like it. The different surroundings bring out the diff. tones (gray-brown). I really hope you can keep the snow in your area (Ontario).

Thanks Dale! It's not the snow you have to worry about up here.... it's the freezing rain/black ice! Just ordered a complete set of Weathertech Floor Liners to protect me carpets from salt damage.

You're absolutely right about the paint being able to take on the qualities of surroundings, especially the taupe tones. It has really grown on me but it's not for everyone. People either really like it or... well lets just say they have a strong dislike!

Toyota has had paint in the '80's that did the same thing. The Tocoma had a gray/green
which looked gray during the day and more green at night. GM had a color like that also back in the '50's. They called it "Falcon Gray". I haven't seen it since,unfortunately.
