    I am looking to get another set of wheels and cannot decide of I should get 16 x 8 at 4" bs to 15 x 8 at 3.75" bs. These will be my 2nd set of wheels. I currently run 265/75R16's on 16 x 8" Pro Comp at 4.5" bs wheels. I am getting some 881's and 5 pack. But don't want to trim for 285's even tho I want some larger tires so I was going to stick with 265's but get dust black wheels with these new tires. Now I am debating if I should (since I have 16's already) to get 15's on the new wheels with 32 x 11.5 instead. It'll be slightly larger and about 1" wider of course. Not sure if 15's will fit my 02 Tacoma or not. The 15's will be the Pro Comp 7069:

    If you want to run the 285's you're going to want wheels with less than 4.5" BS. 4.5 is stock for 1st gens.

    Good cheap wheels. I am about to have 5 of those wheels for sale for $150 if you want to save some cash. $300 if you want the tires too. Tires are 285/75-16. You would probably be better off running the 265's though.

    The 16 x 8 Pro Comp 7069 are 4" BS...just not sure of 285's will fit with the 881...again I don't want to trim or do a pinch weld mod just to fit larger tires. This is a DD and I don't wheel. So maybe 285's will fit but if I am hitting bumps and wheel travel when I wheel I might rub??? NO idea.

    Oh sorry I misread your OP. 4" is cutting it close, I'm not sure whether they will hit or not.

    I'd have interest in buying these... if

    they are the Wheeler's/ProComp 8069's @ 4" bs ?

    they look glossy so I didn't think they are 7069's

    I could make a drive to get them...
    don't need the tires tho'

    let me know.
