wheel question.

What offset/backspacing range should I look at for just wanting to be stock.
I have the 265/70/16 tires and will be replacing them, but also getting some winter wheels/tires. I don't want my wheels/tires being too much closer to cause rubbing, or sticking way far out.

Thanks.

If I get everything the same but with 4.75" backspacing will I rub, and what offset do I want?


Aos, I assume I can use trd sport wheels as well. I plan on getting new wheels for winter wheels/tires.

Stock backspacing is 5.5" . Offset is calculated from backspacing and width. Don't worry about offset, just backspacing.

so if i get a rim that the backspacing is 4.5", then the wheel will stick out farther away from the truck by an inch. Where if the backspacing is 6.5" is will sit closer to the truck by an inch? Will the 4.5" BS one cause rubbing with stock tire sizes?

The 4.5" rim will stick out and inch more only if it is the same width. If it is also an inch wider, it will stick out an additional inch.

6.5 would be in another inch and be too close to the uca. 4.5" will be fine with stock tire sizes.
