    i think what your needing to know is the offset of the wheel. The offset of a wheel is the distance from its hub mounting surface to the centerline of the wheel. it can be positive, negative, or zero. your offset is at 0. so i would find some wheels that are + or - maybe 2 or 3 and they should work for you no problem. btw that your pic looks, the offset is looks negative and it might stick out on you. (i could be backwards.)

    The stock rim as a 4 1/2 " offset for the 14 x 6jj steel spoke rims original on the truck. What you need to ask is the back spacing of the rim - less than 4 1/2 means it will stick out further from the hub, more than 4 1/2 it will be further inboard. Rim width also is important - The wider the rim the further it can be from the hub. Positive offset is forward of the centerline, negative is behind the centerline - all measurements for offset are from the back of the wheel relative to the centerline of the wheel. Also, the hole in the center need to be at least 108 mm or 4+" or the wheel or hubs will need to be modified or spacers will need to be used for the wheel fit on the hub - these are wide hole wheels 6 x 5.5 or 6 x 139.7mm.

    just FYI, as you go up in rim width, ie 6 to 7, then the backspacing and/or offset also needs to go up to compensate for the added width if you plan on not stickig out.

    Nice truck! I think your truck looks better with the 18's because it's extra cab so to me it fits the overall truck more.I guess it all depends on how low my truck sits once I get the cab and bed back on I'll post some pics. Ive got 2"drop spindles,cut 1 1/2 coils off the front,and 4" blocks with pulled middle leaf in the back.http://static.summitracing.com/globa...97-3512_SN.jpg different truck but those r the rims that I have

    Been searching the net and can't find anybody with a d50 or mighty max that has done it in JDM style seen a lot of toyotas and vw caddy trucks but none of our trucks anybody know of any pics or anything on this JDM STYLE it's different but I like it just don't know how our trucks would look!http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:A...wZ79SCJaC5a8xC just a few pics I'm guessing the rim and tire set up is what makes it THAT JDM STYLE!

    Sorry I can't get the link to post but I think JDM style is bigger fenders and small and wide rims and tires but not real wide kinda a racey look to um http://www.thedrifttruck.com/Drift%2...0007NG.jpgthis the only max/d50 I could fine that's close to a JDM STYLE TRUCK! I like the look of the front rims if it would sit a little more in the fender that would b NICE WITH THAT DEEP STYLE OF RIM!

    Lol at JDM style.

    I like mine simple. Nothing too flashy. I'd be happy with titans. If you think it sticks out too far, the 4x4 models have a small fender flare that adds like a half an inch or so. IMO. 5 lug swap opens up more choice of rims. Something like a VIP style Lexus ls400 if that's what you looking for.
