    so im trying to find new rims for my truck.. i would like to try and keep 16" rims if i can but would also like some rims that are going to be off set or will stick out about at least a inch for a better look but have been having a very hard time finding rims that will do that
    im looking for something black or black mixed with chrome any ideas?

    get a wheel with 4.5" backspacing. The less backspacing, the more the wheel sticks out. www.4wheelparts.com has a great selection of wheels that u can narrow down by size and color. The bolt pattern u need is 6 on 5.5

    thanks:), so even if the rim says the off set is 0 it still will stick out as long as the backspacing is like 4.5 or 4?

    yes. Backspacing is easier to understand than offset for me. The offset will differ depending on the width of a wheel. 16x8" wheel is perfect for our trucks. 4.5-4" backspacing is also perfect for our trucks. With an 8" wheel this will give u a negative offset which means the tire sticks out further.

    This link will also help u understand more http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/wheels-tires/102992-wheel-backspacing-offset-info.html
