This forum has threads all over the place with various wheel and tire suggestions. This thread is NOT for that purpose. This is simply a show and tell thread to help people like me "SEE" aftermarket wheel and/or tire options and decide for ourselves which is the best look for us. So here are my self imposed rules for this thread:

1) Either your wheels or tires (or both) must be aftermarket. This thread is not for factory wheel and tire combinations (sorry).
2) Upload a front, side, and rear photo of your truck which clearly shows the aftermarket wheels and/or aftermarket tires. The photo should also show the "stance."
3) List the exact wheel you have. This includes brand/style along with the size/width and any special offset built into the wheel. Add a link to where you purchased your wheel if possible. If your wheels are factory TB, just tell us if they are 18 or 20 inch.
4) List the exact tire you have. Give us the tire brand, the name/style and the size of the tire. If possible, provide us a link to where you purchased them or alternatively the price you paid for each tire.
5) If you have added a lift kit, wheel spacer or otherwise modified your truck to make the wheels and/or tires "fit", please describe what was done (eg, had to trim the mud flaps 1/4").

By "seeing" the various modifications, those of us who are undecided can better make a decision on what WE think looks the best for OUR TB. Thanks in advance to everyone who joins in and shares their pictures and information.
 
Ill take shot at this thread.
- Wheel set up is a set of Grid Off-Road 18x9 GD08 and the color is Metallic Dust with a 0 offset. https://www.grid-offroad.com/wheel-collection/gd8/
- Tires 285/65/18 Nitto Terra Grappler's https://www.discounttire.com/buy-tires/nitto-terra-grappler-g2/p/90511
- The TB has nothing installed lift wise other than what comes from the factory
- Don't think it needed to be said but no trimming of mud flaps to fit this set up.

Feedback since owning wheels and tires
- The Metallic Dust color is basically bronze
- The center caps that cover the lugs have a separate center cap and I ended up having to glue those on because they kept popping off and you cant but just that pcs yo have to buy the whole center cap.
- The Nitto's are way quieter than the Duras, night and day sound difference. Only con so far is these are worse when it comes to wet traction compared to the Duras.
