    hello TW,
    im having trouble fitting wheels on my truck and thought someone else might have gone through the same trouble as me.

    first off, i have a 2010 tacoma access cab with a 5x114 lug pattern. its a base line truck (no pre runner, 4x4 etc). the truck came with some small 15" steel wheels so i know 15s will fit.
    the problem is that these trucks come with "outboard" calipers that will cause some wheels to not sit right. i ordered some pro comp series 52 wheels and found this out the hard way when it wouldnt sit flush against the hub.
    http://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/R...r.aspx?t_c=11&t_s=209&t_pt=100021&t_pl=101829

    so i guess my question is has anyone encountered this problem and if so, what did you do to fix it? i dont want to grind my calipers or get spacers if i dont have to.

    also, has anyone running a 5 lug taco been able to find some black steel wheels that clear their breaks? i was looking at the crager soft 8s but dont know if theyle clear or if i have any other options

    What backspacing did you get? From what I've read the "D" window style steelies will fit with 4.5" backspacing.

    4.5" backspacing. it hits the brake caliper by a bit. i didnt want to shave it if i didnt have to

    caliper clearing or a small spacer would be your best bet.
