I just want my tires sticking out as little as possible haha
Most definitely every set of 18x9" / 6x139.7 BFDs are 0mm offset and 5" backspacing.

4.5" is a great backspacing for an 8" wide wheel, but 4.5" backspacing would be pretty aggressive for a Tacoma on a 9" wide wheel. 5" backspacing on a 9" wheel width is a much better fit for the majority of Tacoma owners.

The BFDs in 18x9" / 0mm offset / 5" backspacing will not give you any issues with the majority of popular suspension setups / tire sizes (usually a 1-3" lift and 275/65R18 or 285/65R18 tires). We've also tested the BFDs with aftermarket upper control arms, aftermarket spindle lifts (4.5" / 5.5") and 33" tires with no issues either other than normal rubbing due to the tire diameter.

If you stick with original factory suspension and OEM sized tires (265/60R18) in 18" you won't have any rubbing.

Sweet! Looks super clean. Reminds me of the time that we had 18x9" BFDs in graphite on our Tacoma before going to 16x8" Five Stars w/ 35's (which is probably a little too much tire by the way).

What size did you end up installing?

Aside from the boxes of license plate frames in our shop, I have them installed on my truck too.
