Right most full size trucks, not a Tacoma, the stock rims are 7" or 7.5" Then add on top of that 12.5" wide tires larger than factory with some sort of leveling kit. A Tacoma isn't made for that additional stress on its parts, hence the CV issues. My full size trucks aren't meant for that.

That's a very common problem with aftermarket suspension kits.

Stock tacoma wheels are 7" or 7.5" with a 25-30mm offset. You were at 9" with a lot larger offset. I'll agree with you that they look better than stock but you are kidding yourself if you think that wider wheels with more offset doesn't affect front end suspension wear.

I can't attest to the newer models as I'm still driving a 4Runner from the stone age, but I swapped all my suspension components when I lifted mine and have put 65k trouble free miles on it since

You were getting Toyota to warranty parts on a lifted truck with wider tires?

Yep. Not like they were 12 wides or anything. To blame the wheels on Toyota and their poor QC is the wrong way to point the finger lol
