    I’m not going to start this off with asking “will this wheel fit my truck”. I have been scouring the forums for a few weeks now trying to find definitive answers to the question. It would be great if you could post the details about your success stories when it comes to finding the right wheel that fits. There are obviously a million pictures of various wheels on our trucks, but there always seems to be some critical details missing around the fit.

    It would be great if you could post what you have found to work and the details around getting it to fit.

    1. What is your truck? Year
    2. CRITICAL: Standard, TRD Sport or Off Road
    3. Wheel manufacturer, model, SIZE, offset/backspacing, part number would be AWESOME
    4. Did your setup require spacers?? (CRITICAL POINT)
    5. Did you need to grind the brakes any to get them to fit? (SUPER CRITICAL POINT)
    6. If they did fit without spacers or grinding, are they ridiculously close to rubbing on any parts?
    7. How are the wheels holding up over time??

    There are countless threads about 265 vs. 285… 265’s will work and not rub… 285’s will rub…

    Lets try to keep this centered around what wheels work. I have ordered and returned two sets of wheels at this point that are said to work on the 2012 TRD Sport, but end up hitting the brakes.

    Wheel manufacturers won’t give you a straight answer around the fit questions…. It is basically trial and error when it comes to getting wheels to fit on these trucks.

    Lets compile some of the knowledge on this thread so people can get the straight and complete answer before they go through the headaches I have been having over the past few weeks.

    Thanks ALL!!

    That is a very good point. Someone put some great work into gathering all that data and making it available. The problem is, it lumps all our trucks into "2005+ Tacoma Fitment" and doesn't take into account the differences between the different models.

    Please correct me if I am wrong and misunderstanding things, but a wheel that fits a standard SR5 or TRD Off Road, may not fit the TRD Sport. Thats what I have been finding...

    I have heard the quote many times in the past 3 weeks that "The Sport must have different brakes, because the wheels will fit a regular Tacoma"

    I was on the phone with Mickey Thompson just this morning and the guy told me that odds are against the Classic Lock fitting without spacers or grinding.

    I dont want to discount the data that has been put out there, I would only like to refine it a little so all of us can make more educated decisions on our wheel selection.

    There is no difference in wheel fittment between any 6 lug 2nd gen tacoma, regardless of trim level.

    No rubbing, didnt cut or grind anything, brakes work great, and the wheels were 5lbs lighter each than the steelies.

    The 139.7 is the spacing of the bolt pattern.
