Anyone have TRD suspension with 17"s?

Anyone have TRD springs (1" drop) with 17"s and/or who has TRD shock & springs (1.5" or so drop) with 17"s?

I've heard with the shocks and springs from TRD mixed with 17"s gives of a large gap apperance, where as 16" (stock) looks fine because of more rubber and 18" looks fine because the rim is larger.

If you have pics that would be the best so I can see how it looks.

you can always buy bigger profile tires for 17"s to fill up the gap thumbsup
