wheel problem

16x10s rub break caliper then busted out my fender flares when i turned. has anyone else had this problem with their 2nd generation tacoma? would 285/75/16 on a 16x8 work?

I am putting 17x8 with 4.5" backspacing AND 1/4" spacers to avoid the rub...on a '11 access cab.

Try these guys for the 1/4" spacers, I have a set on order, all four 17x8 wheels are in, and once the spacers arrive and I can verify rim fit, I will mount my 145/70R17 studded snow tires on them...winter isn't quite over yet and the stock Dunlop Grandtrec tires don't do well on ice.

I'm pretty sure the drums and brakes are bigger than 4.5 inches. You'd have to have like 9-11 inch back spacing on 4.5 inch offset with spacers .

I think you are confusing rim size and backspaing, and offset with backspacing...
