Any pics of ground calipers?

So I can get an idea of how much I can grind?

i had to do that also to fit the mickey thompson IIs.i bought washers from hardware store to place over lugs and then put wheels on spun them a few tiomes and the caliper and wheel rubbed allowing me to see exactly what i needed to shave down.i wanted to shave as little as possible to clear the wheels.....be careful....ive seen it done on 2 tacos and it worked.......no pics though...sorry....but i know that ridge on the caliper will have some removed

this is just a bad idea all together. it would be in your best interest to just get a different rim. Grinding calipers runs the risk of some serious problems.

There are enough wheels out there that will fit, why dont you just get some that are known to clear the calipers?

Or even heck, get those 1/4 spacers from PepBoys. A buddy and I ran those for a time and never had them break.

its not the size that matters. its the offset and how the rims are honed(spelling). tacomas are known for their large calipers and aftermarket companies have started honing the rims differently to fit the tacoma.
