    I just bought the Rough Country Tacoma 2.5" lift as seem in the link below:
    http://www.roughcountry.com/toyota_95-04_tacoma_2.html

    In the description, it states:
    "32x11.50 tires will fit with wheels with a greater
    offset than factory and/or wheel spacers."


    It's doesn't say what wheel spec they recommend. I have no clue what the Stock 15" specs are. I want to go with a 32x11.5x15 Hankook MT with cragar steel wheels.
    The wheel I have been thinking about is:

    Size: 15x8"

    Bolt pattern: 6-5.5

    Offset: -13mm

    Rear spacing: 4"

    Perhaps someone out there knows if this would fit or not, maybe even has this lift with this size tire. Any help is appreciated.

    The specs you listed for the wheels should work with the tire size.

    That is actually a contradictory statement. Wheel spacers work to effectively decrease the offset.

    With that said, I think you should be OK with the specs of the wheels you want to install. Normally an 8" wide wheel with a 0mm offset (4.5" back spacing) is what I use on the '97-04 Tacoma with a 2.5" - 3" lift, but -13mm offset / 4" back spacing should be just fine with 32x11x.5x15 tires.

    Yeah, I caught that too. Figured they worded it wrong.

    These would stick out ridiculously too far, now would they? I can get bushwackers flares if they are out a couple more inches than usual, but I don't want anything more than that.

    Our fitment guide shows a -13 will fit your vehicle. It will be at the edge.

    Let us know if we can help.
