    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190357184784&viewitem=&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT

    here is the disclaimer
    I need you to read this disclaimer and let me know you
    understand before I can ship the rims and fill your order....

    Most Toyota's have larger break calipers or hubs that prevent
    most aftermarket rims from fitting properly. I suggest that you
    test fit these rims locally before making a purchase or having me
    ship the rims.
    I cannot guaranty that these wheels will fit on any Year, Make or
    Model Toyota Truck. This disclaimer is based on past
    experiences with Toyota Trucks and I am sorry for any
    inconvenience this may cause.

    since they are not hubcentric, the center bore should be fine...

    since the newer tacoma has a bigger diameter size caliper, many 16s cant clear the inner diameter of the wheel, so the seller just won't be able to guarantee fitment...

    then you should be ok, but the seller likely still will not guarantee any fitment...

    if you have a 4wheelparts in your area, see if they will do a test fit for you... just don't tell them you are not buying from them...

    ya know, i just went and clicked on the link the OP posted, and since the seller lists these as Chevy wheels, then that explains why they wont guarantee fitment...

    save yourself the trouble and shop elsewhere as the hub wont work out...

    I kno this is my first post but YES they do fit. Moto metals only come in a 108 center bore (ours is a 106 if i remember right) and you have the right size and backspace. just make sure you get new lugs because the stock ones wont fit if im not mistaken. Just an FYI tho you can get them for around the same price from 4wheelparts. also do a search and you will see lots of guy have the 16x8 on there tacos.

    before you drop anymore money, hold off on the wheel spacers...

    i was thinking the same as mike07yota but considering the info you posted above lists two different backspaces on the same item description, i already feel wary about the seller...

    wait until the wheels come in, do a test fit, and if all works out, then cool...

    if not, then deal with it from there...

    also, if ever in doubt, ask first before you buy

    no wheel spacers are needed and a 265 75 will fit stock ucas without a lift no problem and you will be able to run a 285 with a lift and some minor trimming. hope that helps you out.

    No worries. I over thought way too much as well and did wayyyyyy to much searching before i got my 951's. Before i ordered mine I just did a search on this site and google and found out that lots of people have them in a 16x8. They look better in person than in pics. :cheers: to a cold one. Glad i could help.
