    I searched,but didnt find(I could very well suck at searching though).

    I have been given a set of brand new 245/75-16 mud tires. It seems that this tire size was available on 07 tacomas .My truck came with 265/65-17's. I want to by some cheap 16 inch steelies for my logging road excursions.BUT I have no clue as to what width and back spacing.I have no lift ,all stock. If someone could help or point me in the right direction I would appreciate it...

    Thanks.......
    JC

    Your best bet would be to find some toyota steel wheels like the spare. If you go aftermarket, make sure the new wheels don't run up against the brake calipers.

    Just so you know the type A rims wheelers has is mostly for the 4runners.......not really made for the tacoma.........make sure you order the TYPE B rim and you'll be fine.
