    hello all,
    im having trouble fitting wheels on my truck and thought someone else might have gone through the same trouble as me.

    first off, i have a 2010 tacoma access cab with a 5x114 lug pattern. its a base line truck (no pre runner, 4x4 etc). the truck came with some small 15" steel wheels so i know 15s will fit.
    the problem is that these trucks come with "outboard" calipers that will cause some wheels to not sit right. i ordered some pro comp series 52 wheels and found this out the hard way when it wouldnt sit flush against the hub.

    so i guess my question is has anyone encountered this problem and if so, what did you do to fix it? i dont want to grind my calipers or get spacers if i dont have to.

    also, has anyone running a 5 lug taco been able to find some black steel wheels that clear their breaks? i was looking at the crager soft 8s but dont know if theyle clear or if i have any other options
