    I'm in a bind because I'm way behind and I really must to know the deal.

    Thumbs up if you get the song reference.

    Anyway my rim seems to be leaking from a serious rust issue and I'm about to do a 1000 mile drive. I can have new rims here tomorrow but I need to know the proper backspacing for my 2001 Taco. Will these rims with a 3.75" backspacing fit?

    Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes. But they are quite wide and I wouldn't recommend them unless you are running at least 12.5" wide tires. (315's)

    yeah, those are very wide wheels. i'd try 15x8 if you're looking for something a bit wider than the stock 15x7 toyota wheels. with 3.75" backspacing they'll stick out a bit further than the fender flares, just fyi. and you may have to do shave the cab pinch-weld. to deal with rubbing issues.

    with 15" wheels, most aftermarket wheel manufactures don't make anything with that much backspacing due to caliper clearance issues. if you go up to 16" wheels, you have many more options, but that, of course, means getting new tires as well (which is why i still have 15" wheels!).

    According to the BFG website, the 32x11.5 15's are approved for 8-10" wide rims, so you are good to go.

    Well, wheels are ordered! Let's hope I'm on the road by Friday evening.

    Thanks for all the help.
