    Pretty sure Tacomas have the same calipers and rotors. Tundra is the brake upgrade. For those you need at least 16" wheels; larger is recommended.

    And seems to be 2 different Tundra calipers, WE and WS (not sure of latter) mold identifiers in caliper. To use WS calipers, dust shield trimming appears to be necessary, which WE calipers apparently don't require. Planning this upgrade with WEs and Tundra LBJs at same time, will update when done.

    I believe the WE’s are the 199mm and the WS are 213mm, and i also think that there is only one oem 16” wheel that will not clear with the 213’s.

    Yes, believe you are right. Would 199 and 213 be a measurement in mm (length?), or tied to some obscure code system?

    WE casting for 199mm calipers off 2000 Tundra will not require trimming of dust shields. WS casting 213mm calipers will require said trimming. Obviously both will need Tundra rotors.

    I've done this mod. 2005 WE 199mm Tundra rotors & calipers only. The Tundy calipers require at least a 16" rim b/c the clearance is about 1/8" to 1/4". The fun part is I bought new parts from Napa for $380 which is about 2/3 the price for Toyota OEM. The Tundra LBJs don't fit 4R, neither do the Taco's. Toyota corp says that LBJs need to be replaced every 100k BUT they are over engineered to last up to 200k. I bought my replacement LBJs from Amazon for about $100/each. Wear limit is 1/32" of play.

    You'll love the Tundy brakes, I can stop on a dime & give change.
