I just bought 32x11.5 x 15 BFG muds, and now I need some black 15" rims to fit them. Ive been reading all over that certain rrims dont fit and some do. I have 15" rims stock on my tacoma. I do not have ABS. What black 15" rims will fit ?? Thanks guys!

I really like these : what size and brand are they?

Those just look like the Black Rockcrawler Wheels that are like $40 each. 15x8 6 on 5.5 lug. The 15x8 should do you fine. I think they can be found at www.4wheelparts.com there are more sites, but I can't think of them now.

You can get powered coat black wheels from wheeler offroad also but they are alum.

try Wheelers http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/toywheels.htm these are Pro Comp Rockcrawler wheels and they will fit, however they just barely clear the caliper but this is normal, several people including myself are running these without any problems

These guys make a good wheel for a great price, specifically for a Taco.

im putting 11.5in tires on them with 4 or 3.75 backspacing. Should I get type A or B?

The type A is 4.5" BS (same as stock), and the type B are 4" BS, the type A is what they recomend, but I would think if you have enough lift to clear the fenders the type B wheels would be better to get you away from the frame, not sure though

My understanding is Type B is 3.75" BS, used for 32 or 33's (11.5 or 12.5 wide) I have been going around with 4WP for the last week trying to get the 87-5883 (15x8, 3.75 bs). Now they tell me next Mon. or Tues. We will see.

I just will called 5 of the 87-5883s that 4wheelparts carries. They had 14 in stock at their warehouse in Hayward, CA. Call Geoff at 4WheelParts in Oakland. They ran me 222.25 for all 5 out the door. Hope they fit. Geoff said they dont, but am going by what I have researched on this forum.

I think you're right. The wheels posted above do look like the 97 series, which I bought and just sold. They did not fit. Check out the holes. The wheel in the pic has 8 holes and those holes are bigger and has a lip on the other end. Someone should find out where he got those wheels or what they are because they look just like the 97 series and not the 87.

I just put them on yesterday, and I love the rims. They do stick out quite a bit. I plan on taking some pictures of the truck this week and posting a full review of my setup.

hey did you ever take pics? im lookin to get the wheelers steelies with 4.0 backspacing also cuz the wheels i have now stick out a bit too much for my taste (3.75 backspacing). i just wanted to see what it looks like and how much it sticks out before i decide.

I am running 15X8.6 Rockcrawlers with 33X12.50 BIG O A/T's. I have a Fabtech 3.5 lift in front and 4 inch in back. Go to webshots.com and see my new pics Trail Opening 2005 for some pics of them. Its under tim'stoy or search for hellhole pics. I only had to trim a 3inch corner off the front of the rear wheel wells and a little plastic in front of the front wheels. I got'em at AmericanOff Road in Antioch, Ca
