18x9 ballistic wheels

Ok guys I've searched and searched but couldn't find exactly what I'm looking for... A buddy of mine just sold his Titan and made me a killer deal on a set of nearly new wheels and tires...but I'm not sure if they will fit my taco.... I'm ordering a three inch lift in the next few days.....

The wheels are ballistic enigmas 18x9 according to the website + 12 offset. Tires are nitto Terra's 325/60r18, I'm fairly confident I can clear the fenders with some trimming and cab mount chop, my biggest concern is whether or not the wide tires will hit the uca...

Truck is an 06 reg cab pre runner, my buddy lives out of state so it will be about a month before I get the wheels and tires....

What do you guys think, I'm buying them either way but would really like to run them on the taco as I just put new tires on my Titan

Absolutely no way you could fit those. Even if the wheels were i ideally backspaced, which they are not, the tires are too wide.

Well that's not the answer I was hoping for, but it is the one I expected.
You think they will hit the uca? I've seen two trucks on here running those tires on 3" lift, but looks like their wheels have better offset than mine

They will rub the uca badly. And I've never seen anyone on here fit 325s on a 3" lift. Even 285s require cutting and sometimes a cab mount chop.

There's one more but I couldn't find it, but like I said his wheel offset looks better than mine.

Maybe I need to look at spindles and some spidertrax

I think we have different definitions of "fitting"

Well im starting to think they will fit, i got my lift on two weeks ago. i got out yesterday and pulled two of my 33x12.50 mud grapplers off my other truck and put them on the Taco, and believe it or not they did not rub. I tried everything i could think of and still no rubbing... looked good too
