Which of these wheels will work on my 1994 Pickup? (2WD)

Last month I paid $650 for my 1994 Toyota Pickup 2WD with 155k miles. Overall it's in decent shape and for the price I can't complain.



One thing I'd like to do before winter is replace the wheels/tires (right now I've got P205/70R14). I know this has been discussed a lot here but I'm a "n00b" and after lots of searching I'm still a little confused. Too much conflicting or unclear info. I do know this is what I'm working with...

PICKUP 2WD (80-95) -- 14 X 6 -- 5x114.3 -- 12mmX1.5 -- L/M

I've seen people say wheels from Mustangs, Rangers and Jeeps work, but other people say they don't... I'd rather not have to widen hub holes, etc... would like a natural fit...

Here's some data I found on vehicles using 5x114.3:

CAMRY (92-on) -- 14 X 6 -- 5x114.3 -- 12mmX1.5 -- 60.1 -- H
ECLIPSE (89-96) -- 14 X 6 -- 5x114.3 -- 12mmX1.5 -- 67.1 -- H
RANGER 2WD (81-on) -- 14 X 6 -- 5x114.3 -- 1/2-RH -- L/M
MUSTANG (94-on) -- 15 X 7 -- 5x114.3 -- 1/2-RH -- M/H
CHEROKEE,WRANGLER (80-on) -- 15 X 6, 16 X 7 -- 5x114.3 -- 1/2-RH -- L/M
COMMANCHE,CHIEF (80-93) -- 15 X 6 -- 5x114.3 -- 1/2-RH -- L/M
GRAND CHEROKEE (93-98) -- 15 X 7 -- 5x114.3 -- 1/2-RH -- L/M

Problem is I don't really understand which numbers matter and which don't... I know I'm looking for 5x114.3 but I don't know if that's the only requirement, etc... Would 15 X 7 work even though the 1994 Pickup 2WD is 14 X 6? Would 1/2-RH work instead of 12mmX1.5? Would a 71.5 center bore work instead of 60.1? M/H offset instead of L/M?

I checked craigslist and found these 15" wheels with tires. Could someone please tell me which ones would work, wouldn't work, what other details I should inquire about, etc.? I don't know much about wheels/tires so I'm trying to save myself the hassle of driving hours for wheels that wouldn't work or buying a set and being stuck with it.

a. http://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/pts/2700653676.html
b. http://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/pts/2699375129.html
c. http://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/pts/2692413179.html
d. http://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/pts/2683198615.html

Your time would be very much appreciated!

Thanks for any help.

14" x 6" is the rim diameter x width
5 x 114.3mm (4.5") is the bolt pattern
12mm x 1.5 is the size and thread pitch required for the lug nuts

More than likely any tire mounted on a 15x7 rim will be taller and wider than what the vehicle should have, which would probably rub. You'd be better off sticking to the stock 14" rim.

Also, offset and backing spacing of the rim is an important factor, and any rim for a front wheel drive car won't be close, so rule them out.

I have aluminum saw blades,with 195-65-15's on my 80 2wd truck. The rims were originally on a jeep, small bolt ford 5on41/2 pattern. These are rear wheel drive and have a negative off set. Only rubbing I get is on a sharp turn, but nothing bad. rubs one of the rubber engine covers, which I've been to lazy to reattach. I've tried other front wheel drive wheels, and didn't have enough clearance to mount them properly. Just watch for clearance issues. A lot of folks go with the 15" inch wheel and tires, give better stance and appearance.

The Ranger wheels won't fit unless you bore out the center holes to fit over your Toyota hubs. Some of them look good, though. The Jeep wheels are also probably going to have 28" tall tires. Stock for your truck is around 25.5-26".

I have 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee wheels on my bone stock 1994 2Wd.

GRAND CHEROKEE (93-98) -- 15 X 7 -- 5x114.3 -- 1/2-RH -- L/M

They work very nicely with no rub. I like the way they look too! I have Yoko Geolander A/T's on them.

You need a low to medium offset wheel, high offset will not work.

The 60.1 center bore is a minimum, anything larger than that will work.

The 12mm lug hole vs a 1/2" lug hole doesn't matter. Just be sure to use 12 x 1.5mm lugs.

I assume you want to this to get a set of winter tires. My suggestion is to use your factory 14" wheels, and buy a set of winter tires that are the right size for those wheels. Then when winter winds down, buy a nice set of summer wheels with some decent tires. Maybe go up to a 16 or 17 inch wheel for the summer so it looks good, and use the factory steel wheels for winter.
