Because the aftermarket wheels are lugcentric they might not get centered as perfectly as a stock OEM wheel. This can cause vibration very similar to out of balance tires/wheels. If you have this issue you can use some hubcentric spacers. They fit on the hub on the vehicle and increase the diameter of the hub to the bore of the wheel. I had this issue with the alloys that I have, not sure if people have this issue with these steelies.
Thanks dude. That's what I was thinking. I imagine if you take your time and snug down all the lugs evenly and make sure everything is even it would not be a problem. I found some other wheels on Summit that are 4'' backspace and 0mm offset but the hub bore is 83mm. They look to be damn near the same as the Cragars but theyre flat black with round windows. I think they will work.

Test fit the Jegs "D Window" 15x8 3.75BP. P# 555-671010. Did NOT fit. Would require spacers to fit, hits the caliper.

Try the 15x7 with 4.0 b.s.
thats the wheel that bolted straight up on mine with no problem.

Thanks for lettin us know that one is not an option though. If we keep this thread going we will have a nice list of all the "do" and "do not" fit wheels for our tacos.

no 32's or 33's in 10.5"? I was planning on going to 33's also but thought I would just keep the 10.5" width on the 7's.

Yes this is helping me a LOT in finding a set of wheels. Being overseas does not allow me the option t test fit, well without paying for shipping to return when they don't fit.

Appreciate all the info from everyone.

32s appear only in 11.5 it seems. 33s in 10.5 or 11.5.

Either way, 7, is not really an approved rim width to run either tire. Not the greatest idea to be stuffing huge, huge tires on to small rims, weird wear, pop a bead.

I thought the OE 5 lug rims were 15x6.

Looking at Firestone specs for their M/Ts, they give a pretty liberal rim width(s) for any given tire. 15x8 gives the opportunity to run several different size tires and not worry about anything.

30x9.5: 6.5-8.5
31x10.5: 7.0-9.0
33x12.5: 8.5-11

Heya Gitsum and Jtye, I just ordered wheels from summit today, and purchased tires today as well! When the wheels get here I'll have Goodyear DuraTrac 235/75/15 installed! Can't wait for my truck to look and act a little more like a truck! Hope all are doing well!

Same wheels as the OP (thanks again gitsum!) Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac 235/75/15, stock lugs. I did find out today while exploring some dirt roads, that at full steering lock they WILL rub if the vehicle is leaning the direction you're turning. I assume this is rubbing where the infamous "black box" is at, and may be because of the larger side lugs on the DuraTrac. Haven't driven it enough yet to comment on fuel economy (not that I care) but they are a very quite tire! They should come from the factory like this!!

Congrats! You should just get those black boxes out of there. It'll take you 5 seconds and you can bump up to 30's if you wanted, without the lift.

More over time at work to pay for all this, is next! LOL I am thinking either an LC Engineering header or, an N Fab light bar with some PIAA 85W ATP lights. One will cost just as much as the other. Don't know if anyone else is using them, but I'm also enjoying my Sylvania ZXE bulbs in the headlights, bright as $h*t and on sale at advanced auto for a while longer!
