    Let see some photo's of your wheels on your 5 lug Tacoma. Cost and who makes them and size. I am not in love with my stock gray painted 15 inch wheels! If anyone did up grade what did you do about the sensors..

    hey I dont have a 5 lugger sorry but I saw no one had replied to your post... I think someone on here had put a set of factory solara wheels on their 5 lug truck and it looked really good just needed tires more suited to the truck (they put the solara tires on with wheels)

    I am about to buy some new tires and rims for my 5 lugger 2006 Taco. I just installed a 3" lift yesterday. I am thinking about going with 235/65/18 or 255/60/19. What kind of rims do I need? I know that before I got this lift, the guys at discount tire told me I needed a FWD car style rim. Do you know if this is still the case after I installed my lift and since I am going with the larger tire/wheel combo? Can I use a RWD rims? What is the difference between the two? Thanks.

    i'm not 100% sure but i think your wheel backspacing and offset will determine what style wheel you use,if you have a wheel that the backspacing or distance from the inner face where it sits against your brake drum and or rotor to the back edge of the wheel is too shallow(like rwd)then the wheel will be to far offset to the outside of the vehicle makin it look like a lowrider only in your case it will be elevated due to your lift. discount tire guy's know there stuff .if you dont buy there stuff at least listen to their advise

    Finally got my wheels and tires put on. It looks like a completely new truck. Engine is a little bogged down though as to be expected going up in tire size and speedometer is off 20%, I need to get recalculated, it is driving my crazy

    I got the Readylift 3" lift and installed myself, wasnt too bad. I got the tires and rims at Discount tire, but I knew a guy who worked there so I got a little bit of a deal. Tires are 255/70/18 and Tork Grand wheels.
