    I have just standard wheels on my 07 tacoma but want to buy some wheels that are 16x8. My tire size is 255\70 r 16 Will I have to buy new tires if I go with anything other than 16 x 7?

    Thanks in advance

    Very slightly wider.

    Check the tire manufacturers website, and under "Specs" there will be a approved rim width range for each tire size.
