    Most wheel manufactures will have a tech department to let you know if they will fit

    I was thinking that the '06 came with 16" wheels, except for the 4x4 versions.

    It should fit. My friend has a dmax with stock 16's on it. It's an 07. :neutral:

    I was taught that even if 16's would fit, going lower reduces the gap in between the brake calipers/rotors which will cause the heat coming off the brakes to radiate at higher temps. It gets hot enough as it is, no reason to set the oven to extra crispy :wink2:

    I don't know how valid the potential problem can be, but I would personally rather not risk it.


    BTW, My 2007 Classic (2WD) came with 17's.
