    Hey guys, I have a 2002 Tacoma, with basic painted steel wheels. The truck calls for a wheel with a -4 to 20mm offset. I bought some 18' Tacoma wheels with a 30mm offset. Lug pattern is correct. Has anyone added these newer wheels using spacers or should I just sell them and start over.

    They should be fine. Is your 2002 a 2.7L?, 3.4L?, 2wd prerunner?, 4wd?
    Any way the stock wheels are going to be somewhere between +15 to +40 offset and the 3rd gen sport wheels are +30 offset and will work with up to 265/70/17 tires. You should be able to mount them and run them no problems. Post pictures and let us know what you do.

    It is a 3.4, 4wd. It’s just the info I got offline said -4 to 20mm and the sport wheels I bought shows 30mm. The tire dimensions are the same as my 16” I have on the truck now. The offset puts the tire really close to the top A arm/ball joint. Not enough room to pass my hand. I should have taken a picture.

    Test drove for about 10 miles. I don’t see any rub marks. I’m thinking the A arm/ball joint move mostly with the tire/wheel so it shouldn’t rub.
