Not the Usual Tire/Wheel ??s for 5 lug

I bought a 2008 2WD Access Cab and really like it. It has the typical 15 inch steel wheels with some chrome covers I'm not happy with.

I've done a lot of lurking and looking at mods, rims, etc.

I found a good site that cross references many standard bolt patterns, sizes, etc. C+OE+15+Inch

I want to pick up 16 inch Sienna or Camry Steel Wheels and put Racing Disc Full Moon Hubcaps on. I've always liked the look & they're cheaper money than X-Runner rims, etc. I can't put those hubcaps over the Tacoma steelies because there's not enough edge to make it work.

Naturally, I'll need to move over the TPS, etc.

The question is: by going with a 16 inch car steel wheel, I'll be more limited to car type tires. That's really OK, because the truck is used mostly as a car anyway with some occassional light hauling.

Anything else that I'd need to consider?

Thanks much

You don't need to conform with car tires there are truck tires that fit for example I went with 17" Rims and got Yokohama 235/65/R17 Geolandar and they fit like a Glove
Just put them today.

The way you can measure the diameter of a tire is as follow:
235 millimeters /25.4 = 9.25 Inches Wide
65 is the aspect ratio for the wall height 9.25 * .65 = 6 Inches height
Since the rim is 17" + 6" top and 6" Bottom is a total of 29" tall

I've heard some people use 31" tall tires but I can't talk about that but you can for sure fit 29" because I did.

I did some calculation and you can use:
235/70/16 = 28.95” Tall or
235/75/16 = 29.88” Tall
If you want to use excel to know the overall diameter just put
235 on B2
70 on C2
16 on D2
=B2/25.4*C2*2+D2 on E2
On E2 will display de diameter of the tire.
