    I have some 4-runer wheels that I would like to put on my Tacoma Sport. Stock has a 5.5 back spacing and the 4-runner wheels have 4.5 BS. I was doing a test fit because I heard for it to work I would need at least a 0.5 inch spacer which I would rather not do. So, they fit but are VERY close to the brake caliper, maybe a 1/8 inch clearance. Do you think I’m safe or is that 1/8 to close to the caliper?

    I've never heard of anyone having issues or needing to run a spacer to fit 4 runner wheels on the Tacoma.

    They the same as Roadliner's? Looking for a set of 4runner sport or tundra split spoke to powder coat. Either way a good look in mine opinion.
