    I’m in the process of trading my 2014 Tacoma to a 2020 4Runner. Are the wheels interchangeable?

    Yes. As long as they're 17" or larger. The 4Runner has larger rotors than the Tacoma, so 16" wheels won't fit.

    A few years ago, I sold my 2014 Tacoma TRD Sport and bought a 2021 4Runner SR5 Premium. I swapped some of the wheels I had for the Tacoma over to the T4R, so I probably did the same thing you are thinking of. The wheels are the same bolt pattern and will bolt right up.

    You do want to be aware that the OEM Tacoma wheels have a +30 offset and the OEM T4R wheels have a +15 offset though. Said another way, the OEM Tacoma wheels - if used on your T4R - will have 15mm less "poke." That means that they will sit 15 mm deeper in the wheel wells. Most folks won't notice the difference, but I did.

    I'm curious about why you're switching? I've been on the fence about doing the same thing. My trusty 3rd gen T4R is nearing the end of it's useful life and I've never really "loved" the Taco, so I've been eyeing the 5th gen T4R's.

    I've been fairly happy with my 4R that I got 6ish months ago. It's great if you go offroad and explore dirt roads and stuff but I don't love it on road. A honda pilot would be way more comfortable and just as functional for day to day stuff.

    Comfort, and having everything under the same roof. I travel a lot, and haul a lot of stuff. I’ve had several Tacomas, just like what I’m seeing in the 4runner

    I bought my daughter a 2019 4Runner a few weeks ago. I love it. I can see why people have both a Tacoma and 4Runner. I need my Tacoma for things like towing the boat and loading the bed up with man duties. But the 4Runner is very comfy. Interior still has grab handles and sunglasses holders. Deeper center console. More room in the back seats. I can see myself buying a 4Runner for myself. It will help keep mileage off my Tacoma too. I average like 35,000 miles a year. So it will be nice to split mileage between two Toyotas.
