Tire and Wheel question for the 2wd

Sorry....I see tons of info about tires and wheels but it all pertains to 4WD.

I've googled for 2 days and can barely come up with a picture of a 2wd with aftermarket wheels. The few I found are trucks with 18"+ and dropped. I'm not looking for that.

I have no clue how big and what offset I can go from the stock 14"s and worse yet I'm not even sure what will look good (but I guess that part is my problem). How bad will my mileage be affecting my going up in wheel size. I don't even care to stay at a 14 if I can put nicer looking wheels on this thing.

Again, I apologize...I know this must be the most asked question here.

I have looked here. It seems that my only real option for viewing this model taco with different wheels.

Guess I was hoping for some actual users with aftermarket wheels.

I've given up on finding a 14" wheel that looks good.

I'm not very educated on the backspacing or offset info given on the 15 and 16" wheels.

How do I know if a 15" wheel that "says" it will fit my taco will actually fit and not rub?
The offsets go from a -6 then to a +45mm. I would like my wheels to be just flush with the outside of the fenders. How do I relate that info?

Be careful you don't get a poorly made wheel that LOOKS good, but has poor strength!

Take a look at: http://tires.about.com/od/buyers_gui...ket-Wheels.htm and http://www.roadkillcustoms.com/hot-r...e-Database.asp
