    No problem, And you can buy your lug nuts which you will need. You cannot use the Toyota ones. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for "heads up" on lug nuts. I didn't know. I see two places to buy them, we'll see I guess. Thanks again.

    They have the 17x9 in the F5’s in blue but that wheel is to wide for our stock size tire. Lol.

    I’ve never ordered SCS wheels in the past…

    Wondering if the best place to order is direct from the manufacturer, or through a 3rd-party retailer?

    Just order them. It will look amazing! I know, bad influence. Lol.

    I would also powder-coat the front skid plate black and repaint the TRD letters to match the wheel color.

    I have ordered all mine directly thru them. I don’t believe you will get them cheaper any where else.

    The other advantage to an orange/red color is that it reflects heat almost as much as white. I did this demo a few months ago on a Toyota lot where there were 3 trucks parked in the hot AZ sun: SO, white and gray. I told the salesman to put his hand on the white and then on the SO…they were both cool to the touch. And then he put his hand on the Magnetic Gray and I almost heard a sizzle as he recoiled in pain. SO reflects heat, stays cool and looks clean when dirty. Any other requests? Cheers

    OEM+ build. No lift and 265's. I think it is perfect this way from the factory.

    Pics are deceiving . I thought it looked a little taller. The bf tires give it a different look.

    I think you could be spot on! I don't know why I'm thinking of changing wheels. Pics are awesome!

    Thanks! Westcott Designs 20 Degrees with top plates DOM and TIG. I personally thought the flat stuck out too much and would get in the way of everyday driving after seeing side by side pictures. After having these on for 2000 miles now, I made the right choice.

    The 20s look the best too. I would choose the same but w/o top plates. Do you do a lot of offroading or are the sliders for general protection?

    I had intended to buy the new LC250 but the info so far for it and the GX is so underwhelming and I figure Toyota will likely do the same on the gen 6, so I am actively looking for a SO 2023. But it is almost impossible to find at MSRP in my area. The two dealers who sell at list have deposits in hand for TRD Pros for two years supply, and the other dealers want $10K markup (and have none available.)

    Wish me luck.

    Wow, that sucks! (but totally get it). I hope you find exactly what you're looking for at MSRP. :cool::cool: SO color is amazing.

    Thanks. Yes, I believe the 2023 TRD Pro in SO is destined to be a classic. The color is wonderful. I may have to settle for a 2024 in TERRA, but I would much prefer SO.

    I bet that they release Solar Octane on the TRD Off-road and Sport trims in 2024.
