Hey guys,
Been doing some research on this since I mounted some winter tires to my stock steel 14x6. Hankook i*Pike 205/75R14 for anyone curious, its been a great tire all winter much better than the all season uniroyals I ran last year (were on it when I bought the truck). Anyway now I need a new set of rims to fit my stock daily driver in a 15-17 inch with no immediate plans to drop it but if I did it would be mild static. Now from what I have be able to surmise from browsing through the many threads already is its usually above an 18 x8 rim that trouble starts happening, and that our trucks like an offset in the +30-40 range depending on tire. My goal would be to keep the tire reasonably close to stock circumference so speedo remains calibrated. In the case of a 16" I'd be looking at 235 or 245 section wide with either 55 or 50 aspect height. Maybe like a Michelin Pilot or Premier or Goodyear Eagle, haven't done a ton of narrowing that bit down yet.

With all that in mind I've found the Enkei J10's 409-670-26 BK, SP 16x7 38 5x112/114.3. This is kind of the sweet spot for me as far as me liking the design as well as the price point (I'd love RPF1 but don't wanna drop $900 on a set). Also if anyone has an pics of a Taco running these that'd be great I did a google search and couldn't really find much as far as trucks using this rim. Thanks guys!

Offhand, I can't find any mention of anyone using that particular model Enkei on their Taco.

Fitment troubles depend on the combination of suspension / wheel / tire, so there's no easy formula for determining what will or won't work as is. It's certainly the case that going into the 18X8 range is going to get tricky, but it's also possible to encounter problems with wide 17's and a drop.

FWIW I think your choice to settle into the 16X7 range is a good and practical compromise.

Pulled the trigger on the 409-670-26BK, as well as some Gorilla lug nuts 21133BC, and Gorilla hub centric rings 72-6710. So should be good to go from wheels and mounting standpoint. Now tires, I think I'm going to do Falken Zeix ZE960 or Hankook Ventus V2 Concept2. Either one in a 225/55. Both similarly priced and both good reviews it appears. Just going to check with my local guy before ordering online. Think I'd be all set then!
