    Does anyone know what make and model wheels can fit on the year tacomas listed above? I'm going to install a 6" suspension lift on my truck and would like to put 16x10 wheels to make the tires stickout. Thinking 35 or 33 x 12.50 or something similar in a metric size.[​IMG] I see many people run 17 x 9. But wouldn't that cause uneven tread wear with a 12.5" wide tire. Post some pics for me please so I can see what "awesome" looks like..lol.

    Thanks,
    John

    Why do you need a 17" wheel with a 6" lift? Im sure i have seen people running 16" wheels with a 6" suspension lift.

    I would like to stay with a 16 if possible. I want the 10" wide wheel so I can keep the tires at an even wear. I just would like to know if this is possible. I will call fabtech and procomp with some suggestions.
