I bought a used '16 4Runner SR5 4WD that had the OEM 17" wheels and Bridgestone tires. The truck rode like it was on jello and steering was so vague that turning the steering wheel was more of a suggestion than control input. I did my research on TireRack.com, spoke to one of the support reps on the phone to get the scoop on how big a wheel and what offsets would work without tire rub, then I searched the wide selection of wheels that fit those parameters. I ended up choosing the Ultra Bully, and I couldn't be happier. The price was great (on sale even!), the wheels look fantastic, and with the Michelin Defender LTX tires I bought with the wheels, the 4Runner rides, handles, and stops like a completely different (and much better) vehicle! I've got 2500 miles on the wheels and tires now, and I feel like I more than got my money's worth of performance, safety, and appearance improvements. The local installer I selected from TireRack's suggestions also gets top marks for quality, service, and price.
