    anyone running any of wheelers steel or alloy 15 or 16 inch wheels on their first gen tacomas?? im thinking about getting a set of the 15 inch black steelies from them, cause im about to get a very killer deal on a set of goodyear wangler mtr's that im pretty sure will fit. the mtr's are, if i remember correctly, is 32x11.50R15, or maybe 31x11.50r15.........so im hoping they will fit without any problems with wheelers steelies. anyone got any feedback. the mtr's are used, but have about 85% tread left on all 4 tires, and i can get the set for $200!!!!!:D

    you want the type b will

    they stick out a smidge more and will allow wider tires


    mine will go on my truck eventually but ive got other things i need to worry about first before i can buy some more tires

    I used 16x8, 4.48" inch backspacing, 285/75/16 GY Wranglers with my 1.5"/2.5" lift. I think black rims will look slick on your silver Taco. :)
