    New to the Tacoma world with my stock 2010. I picked up some 3rd gen wheels and tires from a buddy and I’m looking to put them on my truck. I’ve heard I need to get different lugs to make it work, anything else I need to watch out for? IMG_4872.jpg IMG_5440.jpg

    Congrats on the new to you Tacoma. Make sure you torque it to 85lbs and re torque after a 100 miles or so.
    Welcome to the forum.
    Those will look good on that. Post pictures when they’re on.

    Welcome to the forum. That’s a clean looking 2010. The gen three rims will look great.

    This is a truck I seen a couple weeks ago with 3rd gen sport wheels. Doesn't look too bad.. This is NOT my truck. Lol 20180404_094311.jpg

    U know how some 3rd gens would die on an incline?

    It was the rims throwing a code.

    Holy crap. You know we’re going to start seeing threads saying “my new Tacoma’s rims won’t roll uphill” now.

    This HAS to happen!

    I’d agree that the Toyo’s that come from the factory refused to go up a couple wet hills,... but I’m fixing that soon.

    Man, you ain’t kidding. These factory Toyo tires are terrible on wet roads and ice.

    I went to 4 runner rims and my Tacoma had acorn type lugs and my 4Runner rims are shoulder type lugs
