    I am picking up a new Tacoma Sport with 17" wheels but prefer the 16" Off-Road wheels. I do not have the vehicle yet, but is the sort of trade someone might be willing to make?

    someone told me that you can't do that cause of the size of the rotors and drums. you should look into that.

    Wow, that was quick. I assumed they were the same but I will look into it, unless somebody with experience posts a follow-up. Thanks.

    I know the wheels are different sizes. I assumed the brake were the same on the Sport and Off-Road.

    Ok. I am obviously new here... I see below that there are several similar previous threads and it looks like people sometimes trade. Question answered. My apologies.

    They will work fine. These wheels are interchangeable regardless of brakes (assuming the brakes are OEM that is).
