    why cant you run 16 inch rims with a specific lift?

    rim size usually isnt the issue...its tire size

    you can run 16" rims on anything.. it's the tire size and offset you have to look at

    not all 16 inch rims fit the 2nd gen trucks though...you have to be sure they clear the brake calipers

    right but a lift has nothing to do with a rim size

    that could be because of the backspacing or tire size...

    it hits the brake caliber,i seen a taco with 16in rims with the mickey thompson simmulated beed locks and they had to grind the calibers to make the rims fit.the only difference that you need to worry about is the backspaceing bacause my stock taco came with 16in rims.
