    Just say these in a magazine recently, have only seen pictures on Jeeps, nothing on a Tacoma yet. I dig them, but want to see some pics. Price is good too, $130ish each in 17x8...

    Nope, just 15x8 and 17x8. Seems that they are starting out catering to the jeep crowd. But at least they are made in 6x5.5

    Summitt, Jeg's, etc. They are made by Crager, so anyone who carries them should be able to get these

    Those wheels look awesome. I will be purchasing a new set of wheels for my Taco in the summer. I am going to get 15X8. But I am not too sure what I want yet.

    Sorry, but I ordered a set of the Vipers in 17x8 and when I put the rim on to check the fit it would not clear the caliper. Not even close! Bummer...that's probably why we don't see them on any Tacos yet!

    I did not try spacers. No doubt if you ran spiderex you could clear the calipers. But with a 8 inch rim plus a 1 1/2 spacer you may have rubbing issues in other places. The other thing is that I was not impressed with the quality. The one rim we tried was missing paint on one of the spokes.....Good luck though!

    I think he meant the little 1/4" ones that just push it out a tiny bit. What about shaving down the caliper?

    Not to be a "Dream killer" but the Vipers are at least 1/4 inch into the calipers. You would really have to do a number on those calipers to make them fit....But as I said before ...good luck....maybe you can make them work for you!

    Skytaco is right....I had my hopes up for these rims initially for my taco but yes it was a dream killer to know it didn't work for our truck. I called the company directly and he said the same exact thing about the caliper issue. He knew right away about it so it looks like a lot of Taco enthusiasts tried it already. BR did mention though that they do plan to release rims for Tacos in the near future. Dunno how near that is because I spoke to them about a year ago so if no one is rocking those rims until now...maybe he was lying. Anyhow...i'm rockin the ATX Predators on my truck. Lovin those!
