How Wide Can Wheels be on 05 Tacoma

Hey guys im new here and need help. I have found a set of used fuel hostage 20s that I am considering buying. They are 10.5 inches wide and he does not know the offset. He has ran them on a tahoe and says they did stick out some. My tacoma is currently sitting on 33" grapplers and 17s with a 3in suspension lift. Will 10.5 inch wheels work? also how wide of a tire would I have to run? I know I am gonna stick with 33in tall but dont want any rubbing problems nor do I wanta go higher because its my daily driver.
I know I dont want my wheels sticking out wide as hell and this truck never goes off road (gotta rzr s and can am for that) so that doesnt factor in either.
Thanks for all the help
Trent

You need to decide what tire to run with that wheel, probably be 305's, also the wheel is probably 5" back spacing, so you are going to rub, and IF the wheel fits it will more than likely rub the UCA and possibly the LCA, also you can take taco wheels and put on a chevy but not vice versa, toyota hubs are larger so make sure the wheels fit before you buy. I've seen 2nd gens run 12" wide wheels which I wouldn't suggest, you'll run in to more problems.

Thank you for the information! I will probably end up buying new wheels. Would you suggest 18s or 20s?

And I was worried about rubbing when turning. I know I can clear 33s height wise just wasnt sure about with those wide wheels
