    stock for now, 5100'a all around with 885 coils and 2' aal in rear, light racing uca's and m/t sidebiter wheels 16x8, and nitto terra grapplers 285/75/16 in the spring
    hey guys just wondering if I would have any brake clearance issues with 16 inch wheels? getting new ones and want 16's but have heard about clearance issues and just want to be sure before I drop the money for them. I have a 10' trd sport ac 4x4. or should I just stay with the 17's?

    the wheels i'm looking at are the m/t sidebiters 16x8, or the gear alloy 719mb, both 4.5 backspace

    getting ready to huck a move
    I think the hubs and brakes are the same on a stock 16' Tacoma as the 17" on the TRD
    Correct me if I am wrong.
    I just put 265/70r/16 on my trd and have no rub problems but the clearance is tight

    I was told my new (used) rims were off a Tundra.
    Here's what's stamped on them. (all four rims have different numbers.

    Any ideas?

    my 16x8 pro comp 7089's worked. like somebody said before, just look around on here to see if anybody else is running that same size wheel on their taco. if so, ask them just to be sure that there were no problems. i worried about the same thing before buying mine. but i asked a few people before i bought. if you'll notice, about half of this site is running a 16'' aftermarket wheel, and also the stock wheels are 16'' and didn't rub the caliper, so i have no idea why they say that there will be trouble with the calipers. but bottom line is, they should fit and i've NEVER seen a single post on here where someone said an aftermarket 16" did not fit.

    I ran into the same problem before getting my wheels. I'm running 16x8 Moto Metal 951B on 265/75R16 Cooper Discoverer STT and I have NO rubbing at all. It all depends on your backspacing, some 16's won't clear the caliper but if you have 4.5 backspace your going to be good.

    Yeah just check around. my 7089's fit but they needed a ton of weight to balance so the weights where hitting the caliper.
