    Of the two I prefer the TRDs..the Methods are too busy IMHO....my favorites are SCS F5s in bronze or gun metal...

    Aren't you really particular about how far the wheel sticks out and fills out that area? Seems like it makes more sense to go with the wider wheel. Do they both have the same backspace?

    Agree with Speedtre that the TRD wheels look better.

    No I never air down. Mostly a pavement princess
    I see your point. The roost is the top of my level for just under too busy though and I’ve always liked them

    Haha, so my reputation precedes me. Yes I’m ‘that guy’. The methods are 4.75 BS and the FNs are 4.5 BS. I do get scared that I’ll still have some rub to deal with.

    The F5 looks too much like a car wheel to me unfortunately.

    I think you guys are right. The Methods I’ve loved for years but the most I think about it the darker bronze will look better than the bright bronze/gold.
    Still waiting for FN to call me when the TRD clones are in stock

    Gave 'er a good wash Saturday and went up to the mountains yesterday. Got some good wheeling and exploring in, saw a couple of big bucks as well. Shady snow-melt creeks in the sweltering heat are the jam.

    got all my tires in today...They are 285/70R17 and are definitely a bit taller and wider than my 275/60R20 I currently have installed. This may change once they are mounted though.

    At work we have a automatic drain valve on the big air compressor, it goes off every hour at least, and it always gets anyone around!!!! The best is when the big wigs come for a bbq, and it releases!
    Well I figured it would be the perfect candidate for a train whistle.........
    I followed this video
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TIksACIF1Jk

    And blowing with my mouth it actually turned out pretty good.........
    Well I hooked it up and waited for it to go of; as I’m sitting in the boss’ office for a review; a ridiculous high pitch noise starts hahah he looks around and questions the noise; we’ve got loose lips around the shop and he turns to me and says oh is that the whistle you made? I said yea but wasn’t expecting that noise.....
    Maybe I can use 3/4 or 1” pvc instead, to much air flowing thru the 1/2” so you can’t tell any difference in pitch.

    So I see this talk about Methods and it reminds me, has anyone here ever heard of ExpertVoice?

    I mainly use it for MTB parts but you should check if your employer (or maybe a past employer) is on there. Method has a really good discount that rhymes with “plenty”.

    I had pretty much those wheels on a car. I still like them on a truck. They almost look cartoonishpro to me, but in a good way. Probably because they had much lower profile tires.

    2zz? Na man... 2gr V6 or a 1ar. The 1ar stomps on the 2zz as is because torque and more horse power. The 2gr is just deadly

    Man I wish my guys pulled pranks on me. That's what I get for being too serious!

    And now I'm off to find the nearest auto drain valve and give the maintenance girl something to do.

    Wifey had to take my truck to get our little girl checked out. I was working on the wife's mb and I had to explain that she should fit in the hospital parking garage but she better roll the window down and check with her hand. The look on her face...

    Haha I’m glad to have helped!!!
    Either do bigger pvc, or maybe put a ball valve or something to help with slowing the air down.
    The one I made it pretty obviously high pitched; but this spells trouble because I could do a ridiculous like 11 note setup or something. I already know one of the old farts will complain or be all cranky that I did it.

    Anyone ever seen a syringe like this for sale in person? I need one to fix our Rav4. Most that I'm seeing are pricy for a single one online.

    Are you greasing something?
    I’ve found those at our local electronics store, but it’s not your average radio shack

    Apparently the noise that I've been trying to diagnose on her car for a year might be the intermediate steering shaft. It's a known issue and there is even a TSB on it apparently. Instead of paying big $ to replace some of the guys on the Rav4 forum determined you can "grease" it and the noise goes away. The only thing that will fit down there is a syringe tip like this.

    Her car actually makes 2 different noises which I haven't been able to figure out. We'll see if this helps either one.

    I posted this video last year but no one had any ideas. I doubt it's a major concern but I'd like to figure it out. All the parts I can grab feel tight(ball joints, tie rods, sway bar links etc).

    I got some sideways looks when I walked in there and asked for a syringe and hypo needles.

    Even explaining it was for oiling a car precisely, they stared me down all the way out.

    Can you weld? This looks like something that could be put together at home. I guess the people weight is all you need to worry about. It wouldn't be a very dynamic load since none of the weight is in it while in motion.

    but 2ZZ is drop in, and 8200RPM redline. and VVTLI.

    2GR would be sick, but how would you get it to fit?
