    Research time:

    One, make sure the hub bore on the wheel's is greater than the hub bore diameter on the tacoma which is 106mm. If you get a hub bore diameter smaller than 106mm, your wheels will not fit onto the truck.

    Two, backspacing is defined as distance from the surface of the wheel that mounts on the hub to the inner edge of the barrel of the wheel. the more backspacing the farther the wheel will be in the fender well. less backspacing will make it stick out more.

    Three: Get a bolt pattern 6X5.5, and you're gonna need new lug nuts since aftermarket wheels are lug centric, and stock wheels are hub centric, so your stock lug nuts won't work. You'll need a conical set with a thread pattern of 12 x 1.5

    Offset and backspacing are up to you honestly. These determine the FITMENT and look of the wheel on your truck. You go with a huge backspace, you'll be hella tuck, but might rub on the UCA, go with a small backspace, you'll be hella flush, but you'll contact the fender when flexing. Most guys around here run a 4.5 backspace which is about the same as stock. Offset is your choice really; Neg offset, get a nice bowl, concavity in your wheel. Pos offset, kinda convex, bowed out. Zero offset, flush.


    A couple definitions for you:
    Bolt pattern or lug pattern or bolt circle is determined by the number of bolt holes and the bolt circle diameter.

    Hub Diameter or center bore is the hole at the center of the wheel.

    Rear spacing or back spacing is the distance from the backside of the wheel mounting pad to the outside of the rim flange.

    Offset: The distance from the centerline of the wheel to the mounting surface of the wheel.

    Negative offset: When the back of the bolt pad is closer to the inside of the wheel; when mounting surface is inboard of the rim centerline.

    Positive offset: When the back of the bolt pad is closer to the street side of the wheel; when the mounting surface is outboard of the rim centerline.

    Offset

    Lea esta página en español

    The offset of a wheel is the distance from its hub mounting surface to the centerline of the wheel. The offset can be one of three types (measured in millimeters).*

    Zero Offset

    The hub mounting surface is even with the centerline of the wheel.

    Positive

    The hub mounting surface is toward the front or wheel side of the wheel. Positive offset wheels are generally found on front wheel drive cars and newer rear drive cars.

    Negative

    The hub mounting surface is toward the back or brake side of the wheels centerline. "Deep dish" wheels are typically a negative offset.

    If the offset of the wheel is not correct for the car, the handling can be adversely affected. When the width of the wheel changes, the offset also changes numerically. If the offset were to stay the same while you added width, the additional width would be split evenly between the inside and outside. For most cars, this won't work correctly. We have test fitted thousands of different vehicles for proper fitment. Our extensive database allows our sales staff to offer you the perfect fit for your vehicle.

    *Backspacing, similar to offset, is the distance from the hub mounting surface to the inside lip of the wheel (measured in inches).

    Bead-Loc A device which captures the tire bead between it's flanges, usually secured by bolts to keep tire bead from dismounting. Usually used in dirt circle track or off road applications where low tire pressures are used and hitting ruts or other vehicles are common. Left: An example of a Bead-Loc wheel
