    2014 TRD Off Road
    I've been lurking here for quite some time. I just posted my stock wheels for sale and figured I'd introduce myself and show off my new wheels.

    I went with the Level 8 MK6s and put 265/75/16 DuraTracs on. I plan on putting the TRD center cap from the baja wheels on them. I ordered the wrong size, but included the picture so you get the idea.

    It's all stock suspension so far. I had to take the flaps (including the tiny one in the front of the well) off in the front due to a slight rub. No cutting.

    I got just under an inch of lift all around from the increased tire size.

    Thanks. I think it will look much better with the TRD center cap. The Level 8 wheel's center cap is just terrible with the giant 8 on them.

    Yeah, I dig 'em! I screwed up and bought the 265/70 Duratracs instead of the 265/75's... I would have enjoyed the lift and looks of them. They fill the wheel wells nicely on your truck, a very good look for it for sure.

    Looks great! I just put on MK6s in bronze this week but kept the stock tires for now. Lemme know which cap you order. I don't like the giant 8 either.

    This is the part number you need to fit. I got these from Amazon:

    http://www.amazon.com/Genuine-Toyot...qid=1408130640&sr=8-2&keywords=trd+center+cap

    Should get them on Tuesday. I post an update when I put the caps on.

    I also thought about getting these decal stickers to just put over the 8:
    http://www.amazon.com/Toyota-TRD-St...qid=1408130708&sr=8-6&keywords=trd+center+cap

    I actually saw both of these options on a 4runner forum. Google Level 8 Mk6 with TRD cap and you'll get a bunch of examples.

    Looks great

    I have the Level 8 Trackers...but mine are 16x8.5 with 265/75/16 Duratracs and love my set up ...I had to remove both front mudflaps...but it would still experience a slight rub when it was turned and hit a slight bump, like turning into my driveway everyday...I put 5100s at 1.75..and it fixed everything.

    I haven't had them offroad yet, but I haven't noticed any rubbing pulling into my driveway over the driveway "hump" or over speed bumps. There will be some offroading in the near future to test this though.

    Or the MGM one :) But 6 x 139.7 bolt pattern is what we're looking for in our trucks? OP, did you get the 0 offset or -10 offset for the 6 x 139.7?

    I went with the 0 offset. So these actually: I've read that the -10 offset might rub even with the flaps removed.

    If you're looking to buy some use this link to Discount Tire's ebay site. They currently have $100 off if you spend 400 or more. I just broke my order up in to 3 parts and saved $300 on wheels and tires.

    If you enter your vehicle information on discount tire's website...it should pull up the exact wheel that fits your Tacoma.

    Will the 0 offset make them stick out more?

    The 0 offset sticks out slightly more than stock, but the -10 sticks out more. I forget what the exact amount is, something like a half inch on each side.

    The 0 offset seems perfect to me. The tires barely stick out past the wheel well.

    Yeah, I saw the ideas on some FJ and 4Runner forums. I liked these wheels but hated that "8" center cap and was holding out on buying them because of this. But, there are a lot options to customize the center cap. Ebay has lot of center caps that you can fit on there too.

    I'd be running LT245/75r16 hankook dynapro ATMs so i don't "think" they'd stick out.
