the ADR's are hypersilver and TRD's are supposed to be "graphite metallic" ie gunmetal. I'm personally leaning more towards TRD both for aesthetics and color. I can get the 225/40/18 wrapped around Yoko Z-Rated Parada Spec-2 for $1200. Not a bad deal.

go for the TRD if you can get it for such a great deal.

i like the first picture of rims the best. i also think black rims look good on carbon blue. i've got a carbon blue myself, but just have the stock rims on it still.


i got my pirate antenna ball back! *rock*

im not feeling the TRD. the first way is much better. i think bcz the trds spokes stick out if you look at it from the side and then stick the lip. that my friend is no cool. the other one just goes straight attaching the lip. get the point?

Look at these. They are sweet and would look good on a cb celi. Plus the offset tends to bring out the rear end more.
