    hello everyone..... need some guidance as far as wheel upgrades on my 2005 Tacoma 4X4 , access cab, V6, 6 speed... This Taco is a base model with only the SR5 package added so it has 16X7 steel wheels which I'm getting ready to swap for aftermarket wheels. I need to know what the stock backspacing and offset is and what my new wheels will look like as far as if they stick out or rub or have any clearance issues. I'm installing KMC Enduro XD122 16X8 Matte Black wheels with 4.50 backspacing and a 6 X 139.7 pattern.. will this look factory within the fenders or stick out or what?? I'm also installing a 3" suspension lift and mounting super swamper trxus MT 265/75/16 ( 31.9" tall) tires on those 16X8 KMC wheels. will this setup have any issues that I need to be aware of?? thank you .... ok, tirepackage.com emailed me and told me that there are no 16 " aftermarket wheels that will fit the 2005-2009 Tacoma because the 2nd gen taco has large brake calipers and no 16" wheels will clear them except for my stock tacoma wheels. and furthermore, that I will need to purchase 17" wheels and bigger in order to clear the large brake calipers.... is this true?? i wanted to install 16X8 KMC XD 122 matte black wheels for my taco because i dont like the prices and lack of tire choices for 17" truck tires...... someone clue me in if they know the deal on this ..... thanks.....

    What did you end up doing on this? I think I see people on here with 16 inch aftermarket wheels on their rigs. I like the XD122's but have only seen them by themselves not mounted on a taco. A lot of times I see wheels that look great and you see them on a truck and they look like poop.

    I ended up buying the Pro Comp 7089 black cast wheel part#6883 lug centric in a 16X8 size with 4.5" backspacing. I ordered them from national tire and wheel (natltire.com) a few days ago and now i'm just waiting for them to arrive. the 2nd gen tacomas have large brake calipers and most of the 16" aftermarket wheels won't fit correctly over the calipers but the pro comp 7089 16X8 wheel does since it's designed for that type of application. plus i was trying to find a wheel with less backspacing than the stock steelies to bring the wheels out slightly and clear the upper control arms, since my 33" nitto tires on my stock backspaced wheels (5.5" backspace) rub the upper control arms when i turn sharply. the pro comp 7089 black cast wheel looks great, has the correct backspace-caliper clearance and total price was around $500 out the door. chad
