16x8 3.5 backspacing

I'm trying to find a 16x8 rim with 3.5 backspacing. I already did a search and am not finding much. Up to 3.75 would be o.k. Mickey Thompson has the classic lock ll, which is 3 5/8, but the 6-5 1/2 bolt pattern is hub centeric, which won't work with yotas. If anybody has links/pics /info let me know. I'm trying to avoid using wheel spacers. Thanks

Sorry to but in on your thread, but why wouldn't the 6-5 1/2 bolt pattern hub centric work?

Won't work cuz I guess that the same pattern description is used for older GM's but is different from what Toyota's require.

Any wheel which is 6-5 1/2 and not hub centric. Look on their website.

Here is a pic of my tacoma with the MT Classic 16x8 3 5/8 backspacing rims. They are universal and come with a plastic insert which is used for a GMC. I never had any problems with them on my truck.

Yah I was messing around on the Mickey Thompson site and did a application search and it came back with those on the list. I think the info must have been entered wrong on MT Classic spec section. I might just get those, but if anybody has any suggestions let me know as I will probably order my rims tomorrow.

call the guys a national tire and wheel, ask for J.C> he'll hook you up.

If you ever sell you Toyota for something that is not a Toyota, then my friend, you are an idiot.

I had the classic 2's with no lift and 265/75 bfg at's back about a year ago. When they put the rims on, i could barely turn the wheel, but i ended up driving 25 mins home anyways and then had to do the pinchweld mod and remove the mudflaps. Then there was only minimal rubbing while turning and hitting bumps. I would stay away from off-road while running the rim and tires with no lift though. Once i got about an inch of lift all rubbing issues were gone. Now i have stepped up to 285/75's with about 4" of lift with no rubbing issues.

sweet thanks for the reply!

so if i get the 16x8s and a 1" spacer then i shouldn't have a problem with rubbing with 265-75-16? If i lift the front 1" will i need to lift the rear or will this just even out the ride?

thanks again for the help!

With one inch you may still need to do the pinchweld mod. Personally i would go 2" inches. Maybe with some donahoes or some sort of coilover. I'm hoping to get a set in the next year.

coilovers are overkill, not to mention to much coin for my application. i'll prolly beat the pinchwelds in and go for the 265/75 and more than likely stock rims for now..... then go with MT and a small lift in the near future........my plan anyway......still looking to see if i can squeeze out money for the rims too.

Ya they may be overkill, but i have the all-pro coilover's and i wanna try out the donahoe's cause the all-pro's aren't that great to me...i dont think the ride is the greatest but i also have nothing to compare to so, i wanna try the so called best coilover on the market and see. I think if i was you i would go with a 2-2.5 spacer lift up front with some shackle's in the rear. It would look good with 265/75's.
