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.
Your time would be very much appreciated!
Thanks for any help.
