    hey, just wanted to make sure... ima get these 16x8 steelies from http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/tacomawheels.htm soon, probably the type B backspacing steelies. just wanted to make sure there were no clearance/rubbing issues with the break calipers and such. my 09 pre runner is stock height. ima put some 265/75/16's on them. looked for info on this, but only got threads regarding 1st gen tacomas. with 1st gen, the type B's clear, but i dunno if the brake rotor/calipers are bigger on the 09 tacomas.
    any info is apprecaited. thanks.

    Stock the way god made her. (FOR NOW)
    pro comp makes steelies and alloy rims...if you have the monies, i would go with an alloy rim simply for weight, the mojave rims are good looking

    and yes pro comp makes their rims
