    @osterhagen SCS also makes the Ray 10, which IMO looks a whole lot better than the f5. more importantly though, they make it in a 16x8 with 4" of bs for the tacomas. not sure if they work with the manual hubs but if the f5s do then these should:notsure:

    For our trucks (lifted with oversized tires) I think 3.5 backspace is the perfect spot to be in. I run 3.5 back space... you would just be doing it without spacers (which is better anyway)

    Yeah that is what made sense anyway. People with 4 say they still barely touch sometimes depends on tire. So this gives me more wiggle room anyway. Thinking of going with Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac's in 285/75/16. Still looking into tires though anyway. Won't be buying them till next week still :)

    3. Cooking/Kitchen stuff
    4. Shower / Outhouse tent.
    5. My sleeping buddy, Mr. Heater, propane tanks.
    6. Campfire chair - Go Broncos! If only it has the cool Kings shocks like @Squeaky Penguin's chair.

    Yes and no. I've seen a forum post where it said they fit, but I emailed the company directly and was told the F5's are the only ones that will fit without modification.

    Here is the thread: https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/1st-gen-manual-hubs-with-scs-wheels.612074/#post-20741360

    Here was their response via email:

    "The only wheel model that is a direct fit to your 1st gen Tacoma with Asin manual hub his our F5 model. Our other model with center caps including the BR6 model will not.

    The BR6 model has a small lip inside the center bore that the cap snaps into. This 1/8" lip will need to be machine off for it to fit without interfering with the front hub. Many of our previous customers have done this to the SR8/Ray10 model with all positive results. "

    The thread makes it sound like it's just the bigger hubs on other Toyota models that may be an issue, but I don't want to find out the hard way.

    Yeah this is just a camping / 4-wheeling and exploring truck so nothing fancy. It's already got plenty of pin strips, ding and scuffs with 300k :)

    So if those are the only downsides, I think I will be good with that.

    yeah, not a major concern. my truck is my wheeling/camping rig but it's also my dd and it was a super clean 1-owner truck when i got it, so i'm a little bit more careful than most as far as keeping it looking nice:D. once i pass the 200k mark maybe i'll stop caring:rolleyes:. i think that in your position i would go with the F5s. they are still decent looking wheels, and are lighter than the Ray 10s i think. i just perfer the way that the Ray 10s look:thumbsup:. IMHO it's not worth having to take a brand new, $800+ set of wheels, to a machine shop to be turned down. if i'm going to spend that much on wheels they better fit right outta the box.

    I have the 3.5" BS F5's and they look great imo.
    Before I didn't have any flares and they did kick up a good amount of dirt and rocks. The first sign of any sort of mud or clay, it would end up all over the sides.

    Then I picked up a set of 01-04 flares and that helped a lot with that. Still kicks stuff up, but it's a lot better. I think they really help fill out the body better too with the wider stance.

    If it's your daily Duratracs are great. They last really well, and I've gotten good traction in mud, snow, dirt and rocks. I really like them.

    I am, however, thinking about getting another set of wheels and mount them with Cooper ST MAXX for trail, and keep my Duratracs for daily.

    I was looking at those and the Yoko Geolandars also. It's not a daily driven rig, which is great. So no need to keep anything to tame on there. That being said I will be traveling a few hundred miles on blacktop sometimes to get where I am going to explore or camp. But that won't really matter unless they are super loud or something.

    ST Maxx aren't super loud, I just would rather daily All Terrains than mud terrains. If my truck was not a daily, no question, I'd be running ST Maxx right now.

    My buddy @MattJakobs just mounted 35 inch ST Maxx on his 3rd gen T4R and I'm SUPER jealous.

    i know a few people who run the geolanders, all of them are very happy with them. they are a mud tire and behave as such but do better than most in snow/ice and rain. i've heard them described as the poor mans toyo M/T. I won't be running them anytime soon as i need the snow and ice performence, especially as i'm planning on moving to Montana in a couple months. i'm running the BFG KO2s at the moment but if my truck was a dedicated wheeling rig i'd probably tub for 35s and run a M/T.

    come to think of it, i'm pretty sure that @m3bassman is running the geolanders in roughly a 35"

    I always get the Pro and Maxx mixed up. To me Maxx should be the top of the line badass. But it's Pro that's better.

    My son runs the Maxx on his 2nd gen and really likes them.
