Those are the TRDs available from your dealer at the time of purchase.
Actually, it looks like there's a missing lugnut on the rear wheel.

Why not go with a meatier tire with all that extra wheel well gap to save ur a** from bending a rim?

Are those 17" or 18"?

17". Also, they come shod with the low-profile Toyo tires you see in the picture, IIRC.

I think it's just a wheel lock.
They don't use a taller tire because that would upset the gearing and speedometer.

imo nothing looks more silly than putting on larger rims with very little tire sidewall but having stock ride height / wheel gap.

Those things are final and positive proof that it doesn't matter how ugly you are there's always some fool who will find you attractive.

I just think it's STUPID to belittle people for liking a particular vehicle. I don't find the Aztek to be an attractive vehicle, but I don't make mocking comments at the drivers or call them names. I just dog on the car.

"SWEET Scion xB" = oxymoron IMO. Just don't like the looks of this trucklet.

18's are HUGE freakin' wheels on an xB.
I did see one at NorCaL meets SoCaL with 18's... it was slammed, and had Recaro SRD's... it wasn't so bad.
