Ah ok, cool.
Just making sure the offset was good.

You can use this site too and cross check it with the T100.

I went with older 4x4 16" Tacoma wheels (think they were from a 2000 I believe). Most of the more modern wheels from Toyota trucks and SUVs didn't have enough back spacing. Some of the early Tundras looked like they would work too.
Edit: If the ones you're getting are the exact same ones in the picture (believe they look like these), then they should fit perfectly since they have a 15mm offset just like these ones I used.
EDIT 2: If they're the ones in the photo you have then they're 17s, but if they're 16s like the guy in the other thread has, then 235/65/r16 tires work perfectly on a 2wd. Speedo is like .1 MPH off at 70 MPH LOL. Can't get any better than that. Plus that size is readily available. Was having trouble finding the factory size 15" tires anywhere which kind of influenced me to go through with the upgrade a couple of years ago.

Gotcha ok, they are 17's with a tire size 265-70 (17).

You're probably going to have to drop down that tire size quite a bit if you want the speedometer to be even close to correct plus you would lose a lot of performance with that end gearing (along with mileage). Not too sure if they would even fit. When I bought my 16s, they were only $100 and luckily they didn't have tires at all to deal with but needed to be refinished desperately. If your factory size was 215/75/r15 then something around 750 revolutions per mile should work out. The size 225/60/17 should be spot on. If you want something with a little more tread width then 245/55/R17 will work and look pretty cool, but must warn you that the price jumps up quite a bit with that size.

Wondering how you made out with the 17” FJ Cruiser wheels.
Have been considering switching over to some 17”s off of a 2011 Tacoma TRD as pictured below.
They’re 17x7.5.
They have bolt pattern 6x139.7 which I believe is what‘s on my 95 T100 4WD (completely stock) but not sure of the offset and if it would present a problem.
Did you go with 265/70 tires?

You can use this site to compare the specs of both wheels.
I don't think you'll have any issues.

Thanks for the link but for someone not familiar with the site seems to be a bit of a learning curve.....or maybe not enough brain matter left these days😎

If I can help ...:cool:
Just trying to confirm if the 2011 Tacoma rims (17” x 7.5” offset unknown) ) will fit my stock truck as looking to pick up a spare set while I send my factory 15’s are out for refinishing.
May also come with 265/70 tires which are in excellent condition.

I'm running 15 x 8 with a 30mm offset with no issues.
The wheel diameter shouldn't be an issue, it's the total diameter that counts.

You might want to test fit them first. My guess is with the ET 30 offset, compared to the factory ET 15, they’ll be sunken in a bit more and your center caps won’t fit over the hubs. It gets trickier on 4WD models. Those are a half inch wider than factory at least.

I’m thinking since my truck doesn’t have the manual locking hubs I should be ok regarding fitment of center caps.
As you pointed out, the 17” Tacoma rims in question are 7.5” wide which is definitely an increase in width over the stock factory alloys I’m running now.
Turns out the wheels don’t come with tires so I will have to buy a set. Would like to go 265/70 but again, not looking to have fitment issues after spending $$ on new tires.
Came across the Tacoma wheels while on the lookout for FJ Cruiser wheels like the thread starter @RicPietri and @Iconmike

I don’t have manually locking hubs either but my 2020 Tacoma wheels didn’t fit over them without spacers. Mine are 16x7, so that half inch might make the difference, but if possible I’d try to test fit them first just to be sure. If I had to guess, I’d say it wouldn’t fit since I had to get 1” spacers to make mine fit.
It’s moot if you don’t care about the center caps fitting, which not everyone does. They’ll fit otherwise. Might be in the fenders a bit more too if that’s a concern for you visually.

Interesting and thanks for the additional info as I’d rather avoid wheel spacers if possible. I’ve heard that some of the newer Toyota wheels can present fitment issues when swapping onto an older truck like the T100.
Was hoping to avoid that by sticking with wheels from earlier gen Tacoma or ideally an FJ Cruiser. Maybe best to pass on these rims and continue looking for the FJ rims which I believe should fit without spacers and present no issues.
