    With my tax refund coming soon, I think I am gonna pull the trigger and buy me a set of moto metal 951 (I know everybody and their brothers have these rims, but I like em).

    I just wanted to double check to be sure this will fit on a stock-height Tacoma:

    My only concern is the 5.5 bs as I thought I'd need 4.5 bs for it to fit.

    Thanks in advance

    I'm looking at this part of the page: Moto Metal 951 16x8 6/5.5 right below the picture. See it?

    I just realized I posted a 16x9 link when I wanted to post a 16x8 link. I went back and edited the links, but the numbers still states: Moto Metal 951 16x8 6/5.5...

    I might be reading it wrong.

    I see the 5.5 below the picture & see the description. That confuses me. I'm getting 16x8.

    If your going 16x8 that's where the inch less of BS is coming from, the wheel itself should fit but what size tire are you putting on it?

    The 6/5.5 is referring to the lug pattern.

    The stock tires. Once these wear out I probably will step it up to 265/75/16
