Whats up everyone! New to the T3G Forum and looking fwd to becoming more involved. I have spoken with Malcolm a few times and really support what he is doing here! Should've showed my support and registered sooner but life happens...

Background: I have been driving Toyotas since before there were such thing as a Tacoma. My first vehicle was a 92 Toyota Pickup. You just can't stop these things! Even after multiple accidents (deer / other vehicles), I still got 200K+ miles before retiring it. The damn thing still ran but unfortunately got to a point that it was cheaper to get rid of it than put more $ into it. I have driven both T4Rs and Tacomas and definitely partial to the versatility of the Tacoma!

Fast Fwd... Now I currently own a 2018 TRD Pro in Midnight Black (ncTACOpro). Pics to follow...

Wow those do not look like a 265 70. I’ve got the same size on a 17” and mine look small in a photo compared to those!

They are a beefy 265. 70% tread wall with a full 31.9" diameter. If your looking for the quiet and perfectly smooth ride... not for you but I love em! Beside a little road noise, due to being a MT, I highly recommend! They perform well in all conditions!

My brother had an FJ in Hawaii with the same tires too! Good tread wear and life. He just sold his FJ, moved to Maine, bought a Taco and reordered the same setup I'm running!

Welcome to T3G! The black and the wheels are super sexy dude. What are your goals for the truck (besides driving it for 500k+ miles of course)?

I have to agree. Those things are meaty for a 265. They look killer. :love:

Agreed. There is so much to learn about wheel and tire setups and how they perform and look. Those MT look killer though!

Thanks brother! I am actually pretty bad now when it comes to keeping vehicles.... commitment issues. I have been waiting for a color (hoping for some sort of silver sky metallic for the Pro) to add a bunch mods. I had a 17 Cement Pro and now the black but pin-striping and swirl marks are a B****. Looking to upgrade suspension (leveling or lift) with uppers, possibly some new wheels and bigger tires, add additional lighting, roof rack...you know the norm. Thanks for the warm welcome!
