    Hey everyone! I bought some wheels of craigslist for 100 bucks for my Tacoma. I bolted them up and the back of the wheels are hitting on the brake calipers on the front wheels which im assuming this is an offset problem? It was the black rims with the pinstripes around the outside.... I wanna find some black wheels that are cheap or if anything eles id like to atleast find out what offset I need or whatever issue needs to be resolved about not rubbing on the brake. My truck is a 1999 Toyota Tacoma 6 lug 4x4 extended cab and I belive its a 3 inch lift maybe 2 inch but right now I am running 15x10 wheels with 32's and the clearance is fine. Thanks :D

    How much of the rim is hitting? Can you get wheel spacers?

    Well the inner part of the wheel is hitting on the little lip you know the little buldge that comes off the brake cal... And even with wheel spacers Im still not sure if my tires will fit ok with this offset as its very narrow depth and the wheels I have now have a really deep offset. I guess Im just lost because I want to get some black wheels Im just concerned on spending 200 plus and having them rub like these... How much are wheel spacers? And are they safe for offroad and street use? I had considered that but at the same time I just want to get the correct wheel

    Dude I can't give you that answer and feel confident about it. I am not sure and don't want to give you bad advice. If I were you (unless someone else chimes in) i would calculate the backspace using one of the link's information and go from there.
