What Fits My Toyota Tacoma?

May 28, 2021

 

For years, people have been obsessed with Toyota Tacomas. Because of their reputation for longevity, reliability, and toughness, we can understand why. Some people even go as far as calling it “The Midsize Truck Champion.” Their ability to hold their value so well mixed with their classic design and off-road capabilities has earned Tacomas a spot in the winner’s circle, but we haven’t even gotten to the best part. Toyota Tacomas are compatible with a lot of customizations, making it so fun to achieve the truck of your dreams.

 

Before you get started on that badass build of yours, take a look at this third-generation (2016-present) Toyota Tacoma fitment guide to help you figure out proper wheel and tire sizes for your build based on the most popular lifts for this model. So whether you’re riding stock or running a leveling kit, 3-inch lift kit, or 6-inch lift kit, you'll find popular sizes other enthusiasts have on their builds.  Also, check out our gallery to see even more Tacoma builds for inspiration.

What Fits Stock Suspension on a Toyota Tacoma?

If you’re using your Tacoma primarily for city or highway driving, you may not have any functional purpose for lifting your truck. While many people are attracted to the bigger, more aggressive look of lifting their Tacoma, riding stock is a fairly common option for this model because of its popularity for depreciating at a slower rate than many other vehicles.

- Wheels: Method NV 16x18 0

- Tires: Falken WildPeak AT3W 265/75

- Suspension: Stock

 

Keep in mind that with no extra lift to this truck, running a wheel 20” in diameter may result in some rubbing when you turn, depending on what size of tire you decide to put on. With some minor plastic trimming, you would probably be able to minimize the problem.

Some owners like the biggest wheel and tire combinations they can fit to add some aggression to their build without adding a leveling or lift kit, but it usually comes with some inconvenience.

What Fits a Toyota Tacoma with a Leveling Kit?

If you spend time off-road in your Tacoma and you’re looking for some extra clearance and terrain protection, you may be interested in a leveling kit. This option is designed to lift the front of your truck to achieve a “leveled” truck from front to back.

It’s definitely a solid, functional option if you’re an outdoorsy person who plans on getting some dirt on your truck. Also, now you can fit some bigger tires on your build too.

What Fits a Toyota Tacoma with a 6-Inch Lift?

If you’re going for a big, bold setup, you may be running a 6-inch lift on your truck. Next stop, wheels and tires.

With all that extra space, you can start playing around with some bigger sizes to enhance your build. A 6-inch lift is most commonly the highest Tacoma owners choose to lift their trucks in order to avoid breaking. They also care about keeping some of the integrity of the Tacoma’s ability to handle tougher terrain and not see a huge drop in mpg’s.

Here are popular wheel and tire specs for a third-generation Tacoma running a 6-inch lift kit.

Popular wheel sizes:

- 20x10

- 20x12

- 22x12

Building Your Toyota Tacoma

There's no doubt you're going to have a great time building your Tacoma. From picking out the most eye-catching wheels to lifting it so you can look down on everyone on the road, achieving that mental image you've been picturing for so long will be satisfying. In order to avoid the inconvenience of getting wheels and tires that don't fit, make sure you understand that sizing changes and isn't uniform across the board. Whether you're riding stock suspension or running a 6" lift, there are wheel and tire combos that will best suit your build in terms of appearance and functionality.
