    I know first post and its a what size to buy question....

    I have read every rim and tire thread here for the last 3 days and I am still not sure of anything! Just bought a new 2013 SR5 pre runner (first toyota), 4 banger auto and i dont like the look of the stock steel wheels. Can anyone recommend a rim for a 1013 toyota tacoma pre runner (4x2) I have read so much that i am still confused with back space and off set and the like. I have read the some 16" aftermarket rims dont work on the tacomas because they will hit the front brake caliper. Will i need to go to a 17" wheel and tire? My truck is stock suspension and i have no plans of lifting it and would prefer to stay with a 16" rim. I would like a set of rims like the MB72 or the ultra 164 or the MT classics II. What do you recommend? I would like them to fit with out rubbing or having to cut anything to clear and also dont really want them sticking out to far as to fling rocks and dirt on the side of the truck.... thanks for any help you can provide. :confused:

    16" wheels are fine. It's 15" we can't do

    I would prefer 16" Of the 3 rims i listed can you recommend one with the proper back space and offset which wont hit the caliper? I should also add would like to use between a stock 245/75/16 or 265/75/16 tire

    Build thread coming soon!
    Have your tire shop order them the right backspacing and offset. If you're getting them from the tire rack or something like that, it will default to a stock fitment anyway, so don't worry.
