    i have a 2001 trd lifted 3"

    i just spent 45min reading posts about steel wheels and what will and will not fit, and im no further now then i was before i started. i did find out apairently with steel wheels you need a spacer? some 15" wheels dont even fit sometimes, and we have a 4.5" bs and 106mm hub that is slightly smaller then 4.25" so i cant use those 4.25" wheels?

    i want 15" steel wheels, something black im not picky... but i have no idea what to get now. i thought i could just pickup a set of craigers for pretty cheap from summit or something and be good, but i dont know now. anybody have any idea what wheels i can get that will fit? i plan on running a 32x11.5" tire... the 15" version is the cheapest, so thats why i want 15s

    ok, so these will work, but i still need to get the 1/4" spacers right? or because there made for our trucks, they have the 106mm hub hole that fits right so i just need different lug nuts?

    btw, thanks! this is exactly what i want. i just need to waite for my tax return to get my wheels and tires!!!

    the wheelers offroad type bs do not need a spacer...the type and width of tire may require one though...

    however these wheels will not require caliper grinding or anything like that

    and like i said...ive got 4 that look almost brand new...been sitting in my garage for sometime...looking for a good home...$150 plus shipping costs :D

    what size tire did you have on them and did you have any problems with rubbing on the frame up front? i might buy them from you if shipping isnt to insaine to new jersey. my zip is 08096. do you have the center caps too?

    no center caps and i never put them on my truck...i bought them off a guy on TTORA back in july...then won a set of TRD Ivan Stewart rims...so i went with those...

    theyre 15x8 with valve stems...ill try and dig up a pic from when i bought them...i never mounted them...im pretty sure the guy who i bought them from ran a 31" tire though
