    Hi everyone....I'm a complete idiot when it comes to figuring out what wheel will fit my Tacoma so I need a little help.

    I have an '04 Tacoma Pre-Runner DC with the 16" wheels. I want to get new wheels and keep the tires I have for now, 265 70 16's The wheels I'm looking at are:

    Raceline Renegade 6 : Come in 16x8 16x10 and 17x9
    Blackrock Vipers: Come in 15x8 and 17x8
    Ultra Drifter

    So i guess my question is, what size will work with my tires and what bolt pattern and offset will work. Any help is most appreciated!

    First off try using search before making a thread not to be a dick but you can a lot of good info thats already out there.

    Bolt pattern is 6 on 5.5 or 5 on 4.5 depending on if you have a 5 or 6 lug taco.

    And for tire sizes I will give you a quick lesson. the first number: 265 is the width of the tire. Second number: 70 is the height of the tire from the wheel. And the third number: 16 is the wheel size in inches.

    So for a stock truck with those tires the only wheel you can run is a 16x8

    As for offset the higher the offset the more inward the wheel sits. So for offsets you do not want anything lower then a 0 offset. Even with a 0 you might have to do a little trimming.

    You have a pre runner so I'm gunna say 6 on 5.5 for the lug pattern and if you want those tires you should go with the 16x8
