    After putting 235/60/16 street tires on my 5 lug Taco...

    I went looking for rims and found these new model Enkei wheels and think they're really cool. :)

    (stock photo, the ones I'm getting are 5x114.3 +38)

    I just ordered a set off of ebay. The seller who ships out of Texas is offering them at 10% off so the set of 4 came to only $601 including shipping and no sales tax. :)

    (this no sales tax thing won't last long either :rolleyes:)

    There's one more full set left at this same price, if anyone else here likes them and wants to get the last $67 discount.

    Looks good. Is the current wheel, just regular steelies?
    Did you have to add any wheel spacers? It seems like it sticks out of fender a bit which looks good.

    They're stock 16x7 Tundra steelies. They fit quite well with nothing touching when turning lock to lock. :)

    And yes, the very outer edges of the tires do just slightly protrude beyond the vertical border of the fenders by about 1/2 inch with no spacers, because the rims were made for a larger wider pickup truck.

    They fit perfect. :)

    The offset is +38 which tucks the wheels under the fenders.

    $600?! Damn I'll stick with my $250 steelies. That way when I mash 2 of them replacing them isn't all that painful :eek:

    Just as you thought my wheels are too expensive, I think you paid too much, because I have a set of pristine 5 lug 16x7 steelies up for sale for only $120. ;)

    That's cool. :)
    Cragers are good wheels and worth the money.

    Actually they don't even say cragar on them since I didn't buy the center caps. Funny you say worth the money though cause it's not like I bought them because of the name or anything, they were just the cheapest black steelie I could find haha

    Are they still available? Will they fit an unlifted 96 5-lug?

    Yes, I still have them, and they're for sale for $100 now with local pickup.

    . And yes, I think you might have clearance issues as they give the truck a wider stance of about 3/4 inches on each side. This is what they look like on my 2012 with a 1 1/4 inch lift kit front and rear. The tires are 245/75/16.
