Hey true believers!

I scored a good deal on some Yokohama Geolander IT GO72s and I'm planning on running them on my truck. The only thing is that the LT rated tires only came in a r16 and I have 17" wheels.

So the question is this ... what 16" wheels work with the bigger Tundra Calipers? I've been told that a 16" rim that has "high dish" works to clear the front of the caliper but I have no idea what wheels those would be.

I've been told that all the OEM Toyota 16" wheels work (can't afford 'em) and I know that Wheeler's sells the Steelies and Procomp 8069s that supposedly work but are there any others? KMC Enduros or ATX Mojave for instance ....

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

The List So Far;

S13WE 199mm Tundra Calipers
16" Weld "Mountain Crusher" aluminum rims
16"(x8) Pro Comp 1059
16" Procomp 8069
17" Procomp 8069
16" Wheeler's Type B

S13WL 231mm Tundra Calipers
16"(x8) Pro Comp 1059
16" Procomp 8069
17" Procomp 8069
16" Wheeler's Type B

I have aftermarket 17" wheels and they didn't clear the tundra upgrade. All the research i did said that stock 16's clear the 199mm calipers but not the bigger ones. Its easy enough to grind the caliper down a little anyway.

I've got the 17" Procomp 8069s on my rig right now and they work great. I'll probably get another set in the 16s (if I can't get a suitable alternative in time) but I thought it might be a good idea to get a list together for those that want to do this.

And FWIW, my 17" rims clear the bigger calipers no problem.

Mountain Crushers. I don't know if they'll hit the face of the caliper since I have a SA. However, the inside diameter of the rim clears the calipers by a long shot...

Well ... I went the easy route and picked up a set of 16" Procomp 8069s for my 315 winters. They clear the 231s no problem as well.

beside wheelers and oem, i couldn't find a single manufacturer who made a steel 16" wheel to fit a tundra. tried summit, discount, les schwabb, firestone, goodyear and nothing.

I am just finishing up my 231 swap and test fit my 16" Pro Comp 1059's and so far so good. I will report back if they don't fit. But so far they look like they are going to clear just fine. They actually came off my Landcrusher.

Totally report back ... that would be cool if there are a few more Procomp options.

Well, when I say "just finishing up..." I really mean it's on the back burner and has been for some time. I d/d the Landcrusher, so there hasn't been a huge push to get it done. But I will report back. I did have to ditch the backing plates on the front brakes. They were hitting on the new rotors.

Can't you just bend them a little so they clear?

Yeah, I bent them a little, then decided that they didn't really need to be there in the first place. So I took them off. I ditched them on my '84 also with the Trail Gear backing plate eliminator kit and had no issues in doing so.

I run Cragar Soft 8's and I had to grind about 3/16s off the caliper and I'm running the 199s so I can tell you for sure Cragars wont clear 231s without a spacer.

I had clearance issues with the stock calipers and cragar soft 8's. There is a lip on the inside of each hole. I chose to carefully and symmetrically file (slowly with a machinist file) the inside of that lip and gain the needed clearance with out making them hop down the highway. Just an alternative with those wheels to grinding the caliper which I was kind of sketch about exposing a vein. Will be going with wheelers alloy next. 16's hopefully put some tundra calipers behind.
