Last minute check before pulling trigger

Going to throw down some money for new wheels and tires...headed to town fair tire now....just wanted to double check my research before leaving. This is what I plan on getting:

Pro comp 1069 wheels
17x9
4.75 bs
-6mm offset

BFG A/T 265/70/17
load range c

I just want to make sure I will be okay putting this on a stock Tacoma?

Also do they make a BFG AT 265/75/17? if so, will that tire fit?


Thanks for everyone's help! Pics to follow

My contact at town fair tire said that the 265/70/17 BFG ATs. Would be okay because the section width is 10.5...can anyone confirm. Trying to figure out if I want to run the 16's pro comp 1069 (and have to grind the calipers).... Or go with the 17's and hope the 265 BFG's would look/ work ok (and have the benefit of having the 17's in case I wanna ever step up to 285's and a lift... Does anyone have any suggestions to point me in the right direction?

Are those the steel procomp? I was told the aluminums would fit. The problem isnt the diameter of the wheel, it is the part of the wheel where the lug nuts attach that causes the problem

The pro comp phone support (Eric) said no 1069 wheel would fit a 09 Tacoma...said none of the pro comp round hole wheels would fit... They would hit the caliper... I know people are ruNning them...they just must be grinding their clippers down. Eric said that only a pro comp spoked wheel would fit...this does not seem right to me. The funny thing was I called earlier in the morning and another phone tech told me the 17x9 6 on 5.5 4.75 bs would fit!


Ahhhhhh

At this point I really don't want to give pro comp any of my business. Eric also said that polished AL would be harder to maintain than chrome. Said that they would stain very easy. Does anyone have a another wheel suggestion?
