    Hi world..
    I just got new rims & tires for my "ratrod" 08 Tacoma.
    4.5 offset, like I should have..
    29in Cokers in the rear on 15's & 26.5in Firestone's on 14's for front.
    the bolts barely go through and definitly don't even stick out on the rear.
    What should I do? New rims? Spacers with longer lugs?
    I don't off road. It's like a street rod.
    Any ideas would help, I'm so stuck.:(

    Oh, no way... that doesn't sound good.
    It's just a two wheel drive two door.
    They all seamed like they would work, except for the thickness.:confused:

    I don't know much about spacers, but is that something I don't want?
    P.S. thanks a heap! I had no idea.
    Should I scrap my beautiful new Cokers?:eek:

    If it's worth it to you, you can trip the calipers to make the wheels fit. IDK if I'd trim enough to fit a 14" wheel though .
