    First things first, I have a 07 Tacoma access cab v6 4x4 I'm searching for wheels;I understand backspacing, offset, wheel size, width, etc. BUT what i don'tunderstand is what will fit on my truck. Everywhere i look i see aftermarket rims thatfit my needs (16x8 with a 6x5.5 lug pattern) what gets me is almost every setof wheels i come by Have 4.5 inches of Backspacing and 0mm of Offset. Willthese rims fit my truck or get stuck on my Brake Calipers, or rub etc. Pleeeaseenlighten me. You’re the best.

    The backspacing doesn't affect whether they will hit the calipers. It's the inner diameter of the rim that determines that. Some brands of wheels clear the calipers in 16" , some don't. It's best to either buy some rims that you have seen others running, or to test fit the rims before buying to make sure they don't contact the calipers.
