The Toyo's are sexy tires. Especially when clean.
Great look overall.

Absolutely NO rubbing and NO trimming was required!!!

Came home earlier than expected today so I gave it a wash and snapped more pictures. Tank had exactly 1/4 of fuel as it sat. I have a 350 mile round trip planned tomorrow so it'll give me a better idea of ride quality and whatnot. After the lowsy 75 miles I did put on it this afternoon, initial impression is VERY impressed!

HERE are before pics/stance snapped last fall.

If you want a specific pic from a specific angle, ask and I'll oblige. If there's something I missed, again ask.

Meguiar's - Hot Rims Chrome Wheel Cleaner.
Part Number: G14024

When I got my rims they looked horrible. I sprayed them down with this and within 3-4 sprays they looked brand new. Just make sure not to get it on your hands, it'll literally burn the snot out of them. It will burn your nose and make your eyes water just spraying it. But it literally makes them sparkle like new. Just spray on, let sit for 30 seconds (I think) and then powerwash off.. It took surface rust, decay, brake dust, and mud right off without rubbing at all.

Note: If you leave on to long i think it could damage them, so make sure to pay attention when using!
Yes, I've used the Meg's Hot Wheel Chrome Cleaner in the past with much success. I'm not a huge fan of Meg's products but this is one that does a fine job.

Like I claimed earlier, I've had the EXACT wheel and tire combination in the past and had good success keeping them clean and blinged up. My products/method are below for anyone who's interested -

* Hand Wash with THIS
* Apply sealant 4 times a year using THIS on a foam applicator

The secret to maintaining the shine/bling of chrome wheels, IMHO, is to never let the get too dirty. Addressed the [dirt] matter as soon as you can or the elements WILL leave their imprint over time. Applying a quality sealant also makes cleaning and shine a lot more easier/evident. I used these methods in the past and my previous truck's wheels/tires looked as good as the day I purchased them, upon selling.

For tires, I've used the below method for many years now -

* Sprayed liberally and scrubbed using a small brush with THIS product at full strength. RINSE WELL!!!
* Applied THIS after a good rinse and dry

Usually the tire dressing is applied using a foam applicator straight on. However, on aggressive sidewall tires like I have, I dilute a bit of the product mentioned above in a spray bottle, shake the crap out of it and spray it on directly to get all the crevices with a MIST spray.... then wipe off any overspray with an applicator. Touch dry in about ten seconds upon application, absolutely NO sling and has very good longevity.

I do appreciate your suggestion nonetheless, Ram725.

Let me get about 1K on the setup and I'll forward an opinion on the entire thing.

I should have that type of mileage completed by this time next week.

Yes, I have the S&B Scoop.

I wrote about it in my review which I linked in my signature.

I'll do a follow-up on the setup in this thread this weekend.

I appreciate the kind words.
