    I am really liking the Fuel Assault 20x 9 or 20 x10.

    Going on a 2018 White Crewmax with 3/1 lift.

    Which size do you like?

    Are there any other wheels out there I should consider that look better and I am just not finding?

    They're not quite the same style as the Assaults and I'm sure you probably came across them when you were looking, but my old neighbor had Fuel Beasts on his Tundra and they looked amazing. I'm partial to the simpler look. Hard to go wrong with Fuel, though. Good luck and as always, post pics when you get them on!

    Would you like your wheels flush with the fenders, sitting in from the fender, or sticking out from the fender (and if so by how much)?

    Great looking wheel in both gloss and matte. Between the wheel models it comes to personal preference so what I like you might not like and vice versa.

    Looking at their specs, you’ll need to stick to a 20x9. For our bolt pattern, those are offered in a +1 or +20 offset. Looks like the 20x10 are only offered in a -18 offset.

    The 20x9 +20 will stick out past your fender a little.

    :thumbsup: What Lou said ... 20x9 +20's will stick out perfectly just outside your fenders.

    20x9 +20 with 295/60 Toyo ATII's. Minimal rubbing on the front liner, no CMC needed.

    However if you plan on getting fender flares ... go with the +1's at minimum.

    20x9 -12 (by installation of 1.25" Bora wheel spacers) same tires. Burned a hole through my front liner and some minor rubbing in the body mount.

    The new Baja and Podium look really good, and I was always a fan of the Anza. Go bronze on the color (Podium if they come out with the 5x150 or the Anza). :D

    Good choice!! I like 20x10 with a negative offset. I like them wide and stickin' out. Just my preference.

    I just picked up an 18 CM TRD Sport in MG. My plan: 3” LRT lift kit with Fuel Beast 20x9 +1. I like the Assaults as well but the Beast have a cleaner design.

    I looked at the Beasts as well for my TRD Sport, but heard some issues where the finish might chip off.

    I went with assaults.

    Very similar truck.
    Yes not only on the Beasts. Its like a Fuel issue on finishes different than the black.
    I see that you went with ToyTec. Any specific reason why? Ive heard good things about the LRT. Any input on these?

    No specific reason why I chose toytec... except it was the only coilover lift I found for under $1,000. I wasn’t willing to put blocks and pucks on a brand new truck. So I did coilovers and shackles...

    Not sure what LRT is, what’s that?

    I had my Limited sitting on 20x10 Fuel Assaults with 295/55 Toyo AT. I loved the stance and look so much I kept the shoes and put them immediately on my new 2019 Pro.
    I used the level lift 3/1 using the 5100s so no puck or shackles just better shocks with adjustable rings.
    The setup I had still required lil bit of trim work to ensure full rotation on turning but nothing that was serious.

    I also found that the front bumper has a little bit of play and best to loosen it pull it forward and tighten down

    That was 16 Limited day I traded it in with Fender flares removed

    I gotcha... I just wanted a coilover set and I’m very happy with my purchase.

    I love the fuel’s in 20x10. I wanted them so bad, but couldn’t stomach the -18 on 35’s with a 3” lift. I wanted that deep dish look. Would love to see a couple shots of them on the 19 pro.

    Looks good. I was just too scared they would stick way out past the fenders.
