    I'm thinking of picking these up for my Tacoma. Does anyone know if the 16x8 will fit?

    http://mambawheels.com/Mamba_Wheel_Line/Mamba_Type_M5.htm

    TireRack doesn't give me the option to buy the 16s, only the 17s and bigger. Spoke to someone on the phone and they didn't even seem to know about the TRD or Sport wheels, I suspect their data is wrong. Going by the numbers seems like it should fit, 25mm offset, 5.25" backspacing but nobody at Tirerack or Mamba will give me a yes/no. Also, if anyone has these already I'd love to see the pictures.

    there might be an issue of those wheels clearing your brakes,which is why the 16's arent an option

    You mean the brakes not clearing the inner circumference or the back of the wheel? If the back of the wheel, would spacers fix that problem?
    Thanks for the reply.

    they should work but you'll be limited in the sizes of tires that will fit.

    TacoSupreem, I was planning on just using the tires that came stock, the 265/70 R16s. That's why I want to use the 16x8. Those tires should fit, right?
    KPT, if inner circumference then I'm kind of screwed, right? I'll have to go up to 17s. I guess only way would be to see if someone local has any of these and try it on the truck?

    I can't comment whether those wheels will fit but god damn they're ugly.

    Those will work with the 265/70/16. I don't have any way of knowing if they will clear the brakes or not. Best thing to do is order them and test fit one before you mount the tires. If they don't clear the front brakes send them back. They should be fine though.
