    Here you go everyone!! The information that took me months to gather from many people -some people gave me wrong info, some right, some wheel and tire places gave me bad info too... Many 16" aftermarket wheel dont fit over the 2nd GEN Taco brake calipers but these ones do clear everything..... I have an 05 Taco 4x4 with a 3" suspension lift, 33" (285/75/16) Nitto Terra grapplers, and I just installed Pro Comp 7089 Flat Black wheels-16X8 6X5.5 pattern. 4.5" backspacing part#7089 6883 which is the Lug-Centric version since the hub centric version will not fit the Taco hub-bought the Pro Comp 7089 wheels from National Tire and Wheel aka NTL. The 7089 16" aftermarket wheel will fit the 2ND gen Taco perfectly and completely solves the Upper Control Arm rubbing issues caused by mounting tires bigger than 265/75/16 in height.....you will have some minor plastic inner fender rubbing but can be trimmed easily. everyone gave me wrong info regarding proper lug nuts-You must install longer spline lug nuts to get more thread bite since the pro comp wheels have thicker hubs and you dont get much stud sticking through wheel, so it wont work with stock or aftermarket acorn style nuts, unless you want your fricken wheel to come off down the road. I bought my spline lugs from Wheelers Offroad on their website with spline lug socket for about $53 shipped and they're 12MM X 1.50 size- $1.50 each. Pro Comp center caps had to be mashed around Toyota hub to seat so they werent exact fit but close enough since theyre just thin tin or whatever so no big deal..... I have a base model 05 Taco 4x4 so it had 16X7 5.5" backspaced steel wheels and 245/75/16 (30.5") tires. If you decide to stick with stock 16X7 5.5" backspaced wheels you will need Spidertrax hubcentric wheel spacers to bring the tire out from the fender well to keep it from rubbing the upper control arms. You may be able to just replace the stock upper control arms with a set of aftermarket control arms that provide more tire backspace clearance like the Total Chaos Uni ball ones for $651.40 at downsouth motorsports or the Camburg ones. light racing also makes them but they are more stock style and shape and dont look like they provide more clearance for backspace issues....the aftermarket Upper control arms are a must for ifs trucks that are lifted with big tires to set the factory caster back to around +2.1-2.4 and keep the truck from wandering all over the road like mine currently does....so its something that really needs to be done anyway to complete the truck suspension setup correctly and make it handle good again.

    here's a close up of the 7089 flat black procomps on my 05 Taco 16X8 part#7089-6883 lug centric 4.5 BS. using the Wheeler's Offroad Gorilla brand long spline lug nuts is an absolute must since you will get no thread bite with a stock style acorn nut or even a medium length lug nut. buy the correct spline lug nuts and the spline thin walled lug nut socket to get down in the wheel properly. had to cut out part of the mud flap and part of the black inner fender in front of the tire where it has that large squarish looking thing hanging down.used aircraft snippers-easy as pie. removed mud flap and trimmed and re-installed. no more rub anymore lock to lock is perfect clearance and lots of space between back of tire and UCA's.......4.5 backspace really made all the difference with the 285/75/16 Nitto Terra Grapplers.. next I will replace UCA's with Total Chaos Uni Ball (651.40 at downsouth motorsports) UCA's to make truck handle better again by putting the caster angles back to stock.....
