    Wanting to put 16x8 Pro Comp 7189s on my 2003 4x4. A guy at 4wheelparts says 16s won't fit on the 2003, must be 17+. A guy at Pro Comp says the only Tacoma problem he knows of is 2005+ brake calipers hitting the spokes.

    So does anyone out there have Pro Comp 16s on a 2001-2004? I really need to know what the deal is before I order these things, shipping wheels back ain't cheap.

    I'm not a big talker on here but you will be fine running those rims as long as you get a good backspacing on them.

    they are 4.5" backspace which is stock...

    you should be fine if not going bigger than 265-75-16 tires...
