    Found some Bart black steel wheels at Summit with 4" BS (15x10), anyone know if they fit on a 1st gen Taco (1997 reg cab). Currently running 15x10's will verify BS tonite, tires are 35/12.5/15's BFG's and there is a .25 spacer on the fronts now, no issues. Anyone have any comments on the Bart steelies? These are the 701 series if that helps.....thanks.

    Engage Offroad long travel front and rear with some fat tires.
    they look like generic D window steel wheels... they likely get them from the same place that the other wheel companies get theirs from, so shouldn't have any issues clearing 15s on a first gen...

    if the retailer tells you they won't clear, see if you can buy one wheel to do a test fit before you commit to buying a full set...

    thanks guys, have considered just that and or painting the alloys for now. Price out the door with lug nuts was around $260 for the set, thought that was pretty cheap if the rims were any good.

    Can't go wrong with d window steels... That price is typical for steels... I think cost is like 30 bux a wheel... Also consider buying in sets of 5 so u have a matching full size spare.
