    ok, so searching found me nothing, but probably due to input error.


    the whole lug centric to hub centric i gather doesn't matter as long as it fits the hub and you use the correct lugs, is that correct???


    will wheels from a different vehicle fit, ie: a Chevy? see lots of them on craigslist both

    will other steel wheels work other than the ones from wheelers? I really dont dig that style.

    i would like to run something like this, but seeing as how i have not seen a Tacoma with them, i assume they wont work

    not sure what year/model toyota you have, but i have a 06 DC and i just bought aftermarket wheels and i had to get ones that had a 4.5 backspace, 0 offset. which fit lug pattern, 6x5.5 or i think 6.137/139. thet were 16x8 wheels. i had to do this for them to fit over brake calipars.

    Chevy-specific wheels have the correct lug pattern, but their hub bore is too small. You will have to have them bored to fit the Toyota hub size.

    Engage Offroad long travel front and rear with some fat tires.
    they will work on a tacoma, just too expensive for a steel wheel that most skip them... they are also heavy...

    as for not seeing other tacomas running them, i have them on my tacoma, and i have seen a few others, 2nd gen included, who are running the same wheel...
