when you mention the small mud flap, are you talking about the small approx. 5x4 ones underside the front of the front wheel wells? thank you for all the great info. if it clears the suspension fine. unless any areas on the fenders are gonna rub real bad in normal road driving, i can hold off hitting the trails for a few days after. might make a good weekend project for me and the pops to do some cutting and testing where its rubbing.
You're welcome!

Yes, on the 2012 there are rectangular flaps on the underside of the front wheel well in the area where the bumper meets (directly in front of the center of the tire). On your 2007 there would have been a "nub" that sticks down, but on 2012+ models it is just a flap held on by two 10mm bolts. Simply remove this flap for added clearance.

Suspension clearance (spring perch and upper control arm) will be just fine due to the 4.1" back spacing.

Fender trimming is extremely quick and easy with a sharp knife. If you can put the front end under a little bit of load, have someone sit inside and crank the wheel until it rubs. Note the area that rubs, then trim and remove that area. It will be a small part of the plastic over fender. You won't even notice it once it's been removed.

The cab mount chop is a little more labor intensive, but if you aren't comfortable doing it yourself a good fabrication shop should be able to do it for $200 or less (total). This is another modification that you won't be able to see once it's been done either. You can order a CNC cut plate for the cab mount chop here:

UPDATE 10/10/2013:

Good news! I just received word from Konig that the 17x8" Countersteer Type X in matte black will back in stock at the end of next week / beginning of the following week. This is about 3 weeks sooner than expected.

I will ship all pre-orders immediately, and I'll contact everyone who is on the interest list as well as soon as the wheels arrive.

I'm digging through my photos trying to find some for you. I know this is a very common setup, but for some reason I can't find any photos of this tire combination. This is a popular combo with a lot of the 4Runner guys too.

Thanks for looking. I've already commited to buying the tires(new) from a member here next month and want to find a wheel that looks good with them. Trying to decide between these and the six shooters in 17x8.
