Price is fantastic, wheel design is nice (like an ARE Baja), the only thing I don't like is the length of the center caps. We don't have solid axles or the need for any cap longer than 2", yet these are like 4" long - probably since its cheaper to include a universal length rather than application-specific. It looks like a big weiner coming out of the middle of the wheel. I also DON'T like the no cap look so forget that suggestion.

Wheeler's sells generic black caps at 2.75" long which is about right, do you think these will fit any aftermarket wheel since the bore in the same (4.25"?)

you may not find too many tacos running the steel soft 8s...

as the holes are stamped out or dimple die cut, they have not cleared tacoma calipers for years...

back in the day, first gen taco owners either had to run wheel spacers or shave/grind the brake veins on the front calipers to clear the dimple dies...

those unfortunate to shave too much, ended up with a $300 repair per caliper...

there was a recent story from someone on ToyotaNation who installed the wheels without spacers, drove about 3 feet, and the wheels got stuck on the calipers and he was unable to break them free to move the truck...

the alloy 8 hole wheels from pro comp are laser cut, so they don't have that fitment issue, but the steel soft 8s are so much cheaper to buy...
