First time Tacoma owner from Canada!

Hey everyone. My name is Kemp. New to the Tacoma scene. Not a stranger to cars as I've probably owned 30+ vehicles since I was 16 (26 now). I've owned, Supra's, S2000, IS300, Integra's, CRV, Acura EL's, Accord's, Datsun 280z, Corvette, RX7.... etc but this is my first truck.

Its a 1998 Toyota Tacoma Xtra-cab. Green in colour and with tan interior. I know nothing really about trucks but I'm here to learn. The truck is pretty much stock with little modifications to it which only include newer headlights, Corner lights and bumper signal lights.

I've recently acquired a center console from a 01-04 Tacoma. Some of you have helped me learn that they do fit in 98-00 Tacoma's (much appreciated).

For future mods, I'd like to do a custom grill with the old school style "TOYOTA" wording on it to replace the toyota emblem. And the following:

• 3" body lift
• Front bull bar
• ARB bumper (if I can afford it one day haha)
• bigger wheels and tires (looking towards 17's or 18's)
• bushwacker flares
• rain visors

Thats probably it for now.

But I do have a question to wheels I guess. I was interested in purchasing BFD Wheels. They remind me a lot of the TE37 wheels. But being a car guy at heart, I have no idea what I would need to look into for fitment of wheels for trucks. Will they clear my stock hubs? Any information would be great. I pretty much like all the options that FN Wheels have to offer. Thanks guys. Now heres a pic of my truck

Hey man, first off, welcome! And 98 FTW

As for those BFD's, they should fit. They have the right 6-lug pattern, the only thing you'll have to check is backspacing. Since they're 9" wide, I think you'll need 4.5" backspacing to clear the spindle. But I'd email or call to check, not 100% sure.
Good luck modding!

Thanks for the kind words you guys. I'll have to do more research on wheels. I was looking at the Level 8 wheels. They look very similar to the BFD's but I was told that they wouldn't fit
