I can tell you what will work if you tell me what tire size you want to run, and on how much lift.

Aaron (blackhawk88) is running them, along with a few other members I can't think of right now.

i am wanting to run a 265/75/16 with no lift, or as big as i can go with no lift, i will end up going with the king coilovers and some total caos uca but dont want it to be to much taller , probley go with shackel flip in the rear so like 1-1.5 lift in the front with the kings, always wanted a set of the walkers from day one and i know they are coin but worth it to me.

can i clear 285's with no lift as i dont plan on doing the kings till summer and i need tires now, how much would i half to cut to clear them with no lift or is that even possable with out totaly cutting my truck up ?

and if walker can make any ones i want what would be the ideal offset and suck then ?

ok so just got off the phone with omf, great customer service, so ! walker does not come in a 16 only 17;s, not to big of a deal but was talking with the guy and he can basicly put a true bead loch on any rim for $250 or a street lock on any rim for $120 considering walkers are $390 i might go with a nother rim and just have them install a bead lock, like above i kinda like the factory toyota rim they did there phaze 6 ring on

so back to basic if i wanted to run a 265/75/16 what would be the ideal off set for the rim, thanks

zero offset on an 8" wide rim would give you the option of running a 265 now or a 285 when lifted.

If it's a 9" wide rim you'll want -12 offset, and youll want to make sure that the 265 you select is approved for 9" wide rims.

You can run a 265/75/16 on the stock wheels if you wanted, but if you plan to move up to a 285 then 4.5'' backspacing is recommended.
