Hey guys, not strictly GFC related but you Tacoma guys might be able to help me out.
I ordered some KMC wheels for the truck (km718 summit) Tire shop says they don’t fit on the hub but I’m having a hard time understanding why not.
I have a gen 2 Tacoma, 6 lug 4 wheel drive. The wheels are 16”, 0 offset, 106.1 bore, 6x139.7 bolt pattern. The new snow tires I’m putting on them are 265/75/16, so a modest upsize but I was looking for the 0 offset to give a little extra clearance, especially until I install my lift that’s sitting in the garage.
I have seen plenty of tacomas with this wheel on TW. I bought the wheels on a reputable site, tire rack, and the site confirmed fit.
I did a lot of research before making the purchase and these stats are what I have seen everywhere for the gen 2+3 tacomas. Also, the wheels came with a hard white ring in the box, can’t tell what it’s made of but I had not seen or hear of it before. What is the white ring for?
Tire shop is telling me the offset is the reason the wheel supposedly wont fit over the hub. I understand what offset is, and there are tacomas all over with offsets of 0, -10, -30 and beyond, so how can that be the issue. In my limited understanding, wouldn’t the hub bore be the reason the wheel wont fit on the hub?
I know there are many variables here, but this isn’t adding up. Also, I don’t see a possibility that the wrong wheels were shipped. The 718 summit is not made in many variants, and the 16x8 6x139.7 is only made in 1 bore, 106.1 for the Toyota fitment.
Any help would be much appreciated. I’m in AK and return shipping will be hell.
