    I'm looking to buy a set of Dick Cepek polished DC-1s and the -12 MM will have them sticking out of the wheel well 1.5" so I'm told.
    Looking for some pics of any wheels on a stock Tacoma with the same 1.5" or so out the wheel well.

    Yep I used spline lugs since the stock ones were too wide. And I haven't had any issues at all with the wheels. I'm more than happy with them :)

    I just kept my original stockies that come with the prerunner because I'm broke and didn't have tire money; I think 245/75/16. I should be moving up to some 265/75/16's soon though.

    Your truck looks good but I think my 17" rims are wider than your 16"s causing the DC-1s to stick out farther on my truck than your 16" stock rims on your truck.
    Also I'm have 265s and you 245s.
