I am looking int o the Summit Racing version of the soft 8. 16x8 -12mm offset (4.00" backapsacing). Will these clear 2nd gen tacomas brakes just fine? Thanks

The only steel wheels that clear the calipers are Wheelers Steelies.

Summit Racing Wheels

I'm also looking to get that same style of wheel. I talked to Pro Comp on the phone and they have these that they say will fit my 2011 Tacoma (but unlike the ones mentioned above, they are 4.5 backspacing).

Is it the 4.5 backspacing that makes the difference here? Summit Racing definitely has good prices so would consider those if they'd fit.

The ones above, that ProComp says will fit, will not. several members on here have tried them. As I said above, only Wheelers Steelies clear the calipers on 2nd gens.

Thanks KPT. Frustrating that Pro Comp will say that they fit when they don't. As an alternative, I'm looking at the ones below. Have read other posts here that say they should be just fine. A bit more expensive, but a nice look and seemingly good quality.
