    My previous Tacoma was an SR5 with 16" Alloys. I had purchased winter tires on 16" steel rims for use in the winter. Now that I have a '12 with 17" Alloys (TRD Sport), I just want to confirm the use of the 16" Steel wheels won't cause any issues.

    Thanks!

    If they fit on the old truck, they'll fit on the new truck. As mentioned above, the only issue you should have is the TPMS system not recognizing the change in wheels.
