    I have a 2004 Prerunner with a leveling kit and recently purchased a set of 16" TRD wheels from a 2nd Gen Tacoma with P265/75/R16 tires from another member on here. I have been reading that the offset of the 2nd gen wheels is about 5.5"-5" vs. 1st gen of 4.5"-4" which means my wheels will end up moving inward slightly.

    I would like to correct this and possible add more width to my setup. My question is, since I am using 2nd gen TRD wheels, should I use hub centric spacers or stick with the lug centric?

    Thanks for any help,

    Jason

    if u go with spidertrax, their newer gen spacers are supposed to be both hub and lug centric so you are covered either way...

    A bumper here, some tires there..... you know, stuff.
    I'm running the same wheels on my 1st gen with spidertrax. Works perfectly.

    I've got a 2" lift on my '95 and have found some 16" alloy wheels from an '06 for 400.00 and maybe spacers. I called the dealer to see if they would fit and he say's I will need smaller lugs than the ones that are on my 95. The spacers look like the solution and I will be getting some new rims soon, my original ones are in rough shape and I want to replace them.
