Today is the first day of Spring :D ... I can't wait for the snow to melt and put on my aftermarket wheels again. If you have aftermarket wheels on your 4.3 RAV4, post some pics! Here is a pic of mine last spring ...

Those look super SB. I just put new rubber on mine and I priced out a set of 20's with 245/35/20 tires. Price came to just under 2K everything in including lugs, locks, and even caliper painting if I wanted them done. My other half said it probably wasn't the best idea, she is usually right but I hate my steelies and sometimes you just have to get something because you want it, not because it makes sense.

If Darth Vader owned a RAV4, it would look just like yours, SB!

Keep it shiny!

Thanks Pat!!! I use my stock 18's for winter. They are taking a little beating with all the salt on the roads over the last winters. Good luck in trying to get some new wheels!

SB I like the wheels but have you ever considered some mild lowering springs so that gap is gone between the innner fender and the tire. Nothing major, say and inch and a half or two inches max.

I haven't given the lowering springs much thought, but it sounds like a great idea :idea:
