    Sweet ones.
    So I just bought my first taco. I am loving it. It's a 2008 DC TRD off road. I noticed that it did not have the standard TRD off road wheels. I thought I really liked them, but after driving on the highway, I discovered I have the steering wobble at 55+. It's not really bad but it's noticeable and somewhat annoying. I took it to the dealer to balance the wheels, they did so but it's still there. on the service report it says "note: all 4 wheels have spacers". Thinking this might have something to do with it... So my question is can someone help identify what type of wheels are on my taco??

    I know I know, I have the crappy Dunlop AT20's... that's one of my first changes.

    Thanks and I'm looking forward to many years of driving this sweet truck!

    You should pull a wheel off and see what sort of spacers are on there. You'll probably want to ditch them unless they are hub-centric.

    Thanks guys. That was fast! Much appreciated. Looking for the backspacing offset I think I found it: +30 off set to give 5.4" backspacing. If this is correct, do I even need the spacers? The wide stance looks cool but I'd much rather have a smooth ride and a little less cool look.

    Thanks again!
