16x8 on a Sport?

Is anyone rolling 16x8 wheels on a taco Sport? I just lifted and I want new wheels and tires but I want 16's. I keep finding mixed info regarding the caliper size on the sport vs the offroad. Thanks

I dont think the calipers are different from sport to off-road. I am running 16x8 on my off road. You just have to make sure your backspacing is right because lots of wheels wont fit.... 4.5 backspacing seems to be the standard.

I'm actually running 16x9 on my Sport. You will run in to caliper clearance problems if you don't have the right amount of backspacing. I have also been told that it is difficult to find a 16" steel wheel that will fit.
