Need Experts on Wheels

Hey guys,

I'm new around here, trying to learn and find good ideas for my 2011 MGM TRD 4x4. I've seen a few guys with these wheels and really like them on my color! I found this ebay auction for them:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Ameri...ht_2509wt_1165

Being new to the Tacoma world I'm not to keen on the wheel specifications even after reading over the sticky's at the top of the page. I think these wheels will fit but I wanted to check with my more knowledgeable peers.

Thanks

They will be fine unless you want to run 285's., in which case 4.5" is best, like sandman said.

Also, some 16's hit the brake calipers, so you shoudl try to find someone on here running that wheel to confirm they don't rub.

Thanks for the quick responses guys I really appreciate it! I'm trying to find them in 4.5 backspacing for that price. So far no luck.....

Stock rims are 5.5" backspacing, so he wont have any issues if he's just running 265's.

sandman - Those are 4.5" backspacing with a 6 x 5.5 lug pattern

They will fit tacoma's - i have that set on mine right now - you might need to grind a tiny bit off your brake caliper, ( then you get to paint them whatever color you want!) haha

- i like these wheels alot i have had the same polished set and sold them to my buddy and got the black, they have never been a problem on my truck accept all the people wanting to buy them off me

The auction says they are 4" backspacing. I don't see 5.5 on there.

Crap i misread that too. They are actually 4.0" backspacing, not 4.5"

That might actually be too little backspacing. I've heard of people rubbing on the outside of the tire with 265's and 4.0 backspacing on stock suspension.
