    Ok so I've been looking around for new tires and I was looking to get 255/85/16s but they're hard to find and for a decent price. A similar size would be the 33/10.5/15 which I was able to find and for much cheaper. I have a set of stock alloy wheels off an 87 toyota pickup and wanted to know if anyone knew the backspacing/offset. Also how do you guys think they would look on my truck? Heres some pics of the wheels I'm talking about.

    I used to run those wheels on my '98 TRD. They looked great on it. However, your '03 might have a fitment issue with caliper clearance. Not sure really. If you have them already, why not put one of the rims on one of the fronts to see if it clears the caliper?

    btw: Toyota rims have the offset stamped into them. Look on the inside surface of the rim. They are likely 15mm which would be the same as your stock alloys.

    Thanks for the post! This was very helpful! I'll take a look at the wheels next time I get a chance. :D

    Since the 15x7 stock alloy rims off of the earlier 1st gens fit the 01-04 ones just fine (in terms of clearing the calipers), those should fit as well.
