Wheel spec difference between '97 & '98? (Tacoma)

I've been looking for new wheels for the '97 Tacoma I'm buying, and I keep reading things like:

"Wheels will fit: '98-'06 Tacoma, Tundra (thru '06), '86-'06 4Runner, Sequoia (thru '06)"

and

"What will these wheels fit on? Wheels will fit 4Runner ('98-'06), Tacoma ('98-'06), Tundra (thru '06), and Sequoias (thru '06)."

Is there a reason that a late model six lug Toyota truck wheel will not fit my '97?

only backspacing, you might have to run spacers. I run 1.5" spacers with my GX470 rims. same offset as sequoia, tundra and the new 4runner and tacoma.

If the wheels will fit a 98, then they will fit your 97 assuming you have OE 15" wheels. If you have OE 16" wheels and the larger brakes, then you need at least 16" wheels. Not sure what year the bigger brakes became optional.

I can take the wheels off of my 99 and put them on my 93 without issues, so you should have no problems on your 97.

Good to know. What is the difference between offset and backspacing?

Offset: http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/tech/...jsp?techid=101

Backspacing: http://www.4crawler.com/Diesel/Tires.shtml#WHEELS

The 2nd link also compares offset and backspacing which are measuring the same thing but stating it in different ways.

Thanks again. Backspacing is what I thought offset was...
