    Does anyone know if Lexus GX470 wheels will fit my Tacoma? Seems like they would since the Lexus is the basically the same thing as a Sequoia. they are 17x7.5

    Katskin leather interior, Satoshi grille, Bilstein 5100's @ 1.75, rear leaf TSB, magnaflow exhaust, 18x9 BBS RW's, 275/65/18 Nitto TG's, black headlights, black taillights, Hella Supertones, weathertechs, EFX tri-fold tonneau, n-Fab steps
    I did a quick google search and those wheels appear to be 6 x 5.5" bolt pattern (same as the tacoma) and +25mm offset

    On a 7.5" wide wheel, +25mm offset is 5.25" backspacing. That means they will sit 0.75" closer to the wheel than the stockers on your '03 (stock backspacing for '03 was 4.5").

    Would be a tight fit, but I've seen guys on here running 2nd gen Tacoma wheels (5.5" backspacing) on a 1st gen. You might check to see if they needed spacers, and how big of a tire they were running.
