    Do the TRD rims fit on the first gen tacoma over the locking hubs? Typical 16 inch rim/6 bolt pattern.

    I had em on mine for awhile. Look at the truck from the front, big difference from stock.

    many, many threads on this... yes they fit. But the backspacing is different which may cause problems depending on tire size.

    I have them. But buying them was a mistake, because as mentioned above the backspacing is completely different and it pushes the wheels into the frame basically.

    But it looks so good compared to all the people that have their tires sticking out 8" from the body and don't have long travel setups...

    I hate wheel spacers with a passion, so I would never run them. Actually, I tried wheel spacers with this setup and it made the rubbing worse. 1.25 made it rub the pinch weld. 1.75 made it rub the frame, rather badly.

    With stock suspension and tires they are fine. No rubbing and at worse are 3/4" narrower front and back. For some reason there seems to be a lot of them available at a reasonable price.

    The stock 1995-2004 wheels are 7.0" wide with +15mm offset. The 2005-2020 wheels are 7.0" wide with +30mm offset, and so sit 15mm further inward compared to the stock 1st generation wheels.

    If you are looking for newer wheels that will fit more similarly to the stock wheels, the 2007-2014 and 2010-2020 4Runner use 7.0" or 7.5" wheels with +15mm offset and so share the same fitment as the 1995-2004 Tacoma.

    So slightly more than an inch narrower stance overall.
