    The bolt patterns will match up no problem but I think the 2nd gen stock alloy wheels are all +30 mm of offset whereas the 1st gen stock alloy wheels are +15 mm of offset. The difference is about 9/16ths of an inch.

    2nd gen wheels mounted on a 1st gen truck will be tucked in 9/16" further into the wheel well. Depending on the tire mounted on the wheel, you could see some rub in front on the upper control arm. I don't think there are any interference issues on the brake calipers.

    There are several TW members who are running 2nd gen wheels on their 1st gen Tacomas.
