    Anybody here running 14 inch wheels on their truck? Apparently the previous owner installed wheels that are not for the truck, and one of them has started to break. Have brand new tires for them though, so i'd like to keep them. Any recommendations on new 14'' wheels? they're kind of hard to find. I've been checking on ebay/offerup/fb 5x114.3 14x7.5 ish

    (ps) i don't need nothing fancy, just need them to fit. gracias

    14" wheels are kinda being phased out for several years now, but you should still be able to find 14" wheels online. They're no longer listed on most manufacturers websites (like American Racing or Cragar, etc) but you can find them on catalog sites like Summit, Jegs, etc.

    Googling the size comes up with several choices.

    The 114.3 is basically a 4.5” bolt pattern. Any 14” wheel with 5x4.5 will work. Be sure the center hole is large enough. Toyota wheels are “lug centric” so center hole shouldn’t be an issue as long as it allows the wheel to go flush to the hub.

    thanks for your input. I went with the American Racing Outlaw 2's. Didn't want to spend the money... yet, but hey.. you gotta do, what you gotta do... and now i don't have to worry about wheels later on.. (making myself feel better about it)

    just curious why you didn't choose to go with a 15" if buying new wheels? around me, the 14" tire selection is quite slim, almost special order depending on the shop.

    I have the Pacer equivalent of Outlaw IIs on my 93 pickup. I like them.

    Yes, jetas is correct. Thank you. I saw and liked the Pacers also. I pretty much flipped a coin for it lol
