    I have just purchased my first ever Taco and love it....I have put on a 2.5" leveling kit and now want to change the wheels and tires. I can't find any 16x8 wheels I like and I want to move up in size on the tires. But I don't know what will fit and am looking for suggestions. I only have 2100 miles on the truck so I don't want to trim anything. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    This question has been asked many times on this site. I suggest searching 16x8 Wheel and see what you get.

    I'll give that a try thanks. I would be willing to go to a 17" wheel but what I am wondering is if a 265/75 is the largest size tire i can use.

    Welcome to TW...and using the search feature is always a good place to start...even tho sometimes it is easier to ask, and their are members here who will actually help you no matter how many times a question has been asked or will at least point you in the right direction, and others will bash you up one side and down the other for being "stupid", you'll learn to love the site either way lol

    Yeah I figured after I posted the question that a lot of people would bash me like you said. This is the first time I have ever really modified a vehicle and don't know all the technical stuff. And when I found this site I thought I might be able to get some help. But I guess I'll just keep searching and try to figure it out. Thanks for replying though.

    Use the "Search" function and also there is a "Glossary" found on the above header to help you understand what everyone is saying. Mine is a work truck, so I have no idea about setting up play trucks.
