Wheel suggestions?

Somebody help me!?! I am looking for a nice looking set of rims for my 07 sport. Im looking to run a set of 275's or 285's but cant find anything that interests me. Part of the problem is a lack of knowledge of the manufacturers out there. Also if i go with a 16"X8'' rim, what kind of back spacing will be required?

Any input will be great!

from what i have heard and delt with, you will not find a 16" aftermarket wheel that works i have a mid year 06 . after the first part of 06 they upgraded the front breaks. that is the problem they hit the calipers ,there is forums in here were they have shaved down the caliper to make a 16" wheel work but i just went to a 17" wheel i got the helo black maxx from 4 wheel parts hope this helps

You know, i think i have read a couple posts about Toyota changing things out in 06. Your truck looks good, i will check those rims out. Thank you for the response!

If you like the beadlock look, check these Pro-Comp 1079's out.

Wheels

I have the 20" Einkes with BF Goodrich G-force low profile tires. Toyota Southeast distributor put them on my truck. I have had people stop me on the street & ask about the truck.

You should be able to go to an aftermarket shop & look through several catalogs of wheels to find some you like, & that will fit your truck.

Good luck!
Sean
