    I just bought a 2009 Tacoma SR5 Extra Cab
    and would like to replace the 15" wheels with something bigger. Can I run 16" wheels on it? Any advice is much appreciated.

    Thanks everyone for your input! May sound weird, but I'd like to go to 16 inch wheels because the 15 inchers make the truck look squat and stumpy.
