What is a prerunner?
What is my 08 called?
Welcome to TW!
Glad to see you join the Toyota family.

16" wheels will let you have more sidewall then 17" which is preferred in offroad conditions. The tires for 16" wheels are less expensive then 17" and more tires are available for them as well. I personally just made the change from 17" to 16" for an "upgrade".
Largest tire without major issues on a stock truck is 265/70/17 or 265/75/16. Some rubbing may occur with these.
Pre-runner is a 2wd Tacoma..it has other meanings in therace community but I think thats what you wanted to know. Google it if you need to know more.
Do you have color matched mirrors/door handles/scooped hood? if you do it's a "Sport".
If you don't have the above and you have a locking rear diff it's an Offroad.
If you have non of the above it could be a SR-5.
