    Tried to find these with the Search feature, but came up empty. Anyone running these or know of anyone running with these? Looking at potentially getting a set of 20x9 with a +25 offset. Any words of wisdom from the Tundra Elders?

    Those would be the first on this site as far as I can tell. First on a tundra as far as I've seen!

    Perfect offset unless you have flares.

    Yikes! I would not put those on my truck. Not my style. But it's your truck, if you like being unique and don't really care what others think, go for it.

    I hear ya Joonbug, they make an all black model that I am leaning toward. The gold/ bronze is a bit much for contrast, but the wheel does resemble the linkage on a drive train of a bike (as advertised). Law, what would be the issue with flares? (Assuming you mean fender flares.) Not planning on any major up size in tires. Maybe some 33s. Also looking for a level kit to nudge the front end up a bit and give a little more "wiggle room". Been weighing these vs Fuel Vapors in 20x9 with 35+ offset.

    I meant if you get or have flares (yeah fender flares) a 25 offset would still give them the "tucked in" look rather than being flush or slightly sticking out which makes the truck stance look a ton better!

    Without flares, a 25-35 offset sits just right.

    Thanks Law, thought you were saying they were gonna rub. Out here in the semi-communist state of MD, gotta watch how far out the tires extend past the fender or its a potential ticket/ fine.
    Thanks for the input Plat Pro & CO Miami. Always welcome an opinion. Hey, if we all wanted our trucks to look like someone else's we'd all be driving stock, lol.
