Newbie needs some advice on wheels/Lift!!!

Hey guys im new here just bought a 2012 Tacoma Regular Cab 4X4 and i'm going to be doing a 3" Revtek lift (It's just an A to B so the lift is for look or I would do a full suspension lift vs spacers) I have some questions before I go through with buying everything and having ok4wd do the install.

1.) For the wheels I'm looking at Pro Comp 52 Rock Crawler series 16X8,
6 on 5.5 bolt pattern with a 4.5" BS - Is that correct BS?

2.) For tires i'm looking at BFG All-Terrain T/A KO LT265/75/R16 - To big?
To small? don't want to have to trim anything or rub.

3.) The lift I found (some hate it some love it) was the Revtek 3" lift
using spacers up front/blocks and ubolts in the rear

So I really just want to make sure that the backspacing is correct (thats what revtek reccomends with the lift) & That the tires wont rub but still look good

Sounds fine. The tires will fit. Don't know how those tires run some may think they look a little small. Hit or miss in a 265 if they will look small or not as some run a little "beefier." I have 265 Duratracs and I think they look fine with a 3" lift. Also you don't have to be a serious off roader for a suspension lift. My truck sees mostly highway miles but the different shocks give me generally a nicer ride than stock.

Thanks for the answers guys! As far as the ProComp 52s not clearing the calipers, why dont they clear them? It's the same size wheel that comes stock on my truck except for the BS ofcourse.

The wheels ones fit because they specifically designed them to clear the tacoma calipers. Other other steel wheels don't have a big enough opening on the back to clear the calipers.

I too would suggest upgrading your suspension, not just lifting the truck. With a small truck like that, (regular cab) I would think that the spacers would make the ride almost unbearable. However, this is only a suggestion to maybe make you think a bit longer. Do what you want.

You can always go with tundra 17in steelies. I love the look and fit perfect, no spacers.

Bilstein Adjustable lift kit with 5100 shocks for 2005 & UP Tacoma
1.5 to 3" lift kit with Eibach front coils (3" average lift is achieved with coils and setting the shock adjustment on the second C clip setting from the bottom) DO NOT EXCEED THIS SETTING OR DAMAGE CAN OCCUR
Double cab models may require top plate spacers for full 3" lift
Includes:
C475 Height adjustable Bilstein front 5100 shocks
TP14 spacer for correction of drivers side lean
112-620 Eibach/Toytec front coil springs 620lb spring rate
TAC-DR-05 Front diff drop kit (choose from options)
Rear Options: Choose below
TAC-AL Toytec standard 2" lift add-a-leafs with anti friction pads
TAC-AL-TSB Toytec TSB 1.5" add-a-leafs for use with 4 leaf rear springs
1 1/2" blocks with U-bolts

Would the AAL make my ride really stiff though?

This is true. You can also use FJ steel wheels.

I should have said no aftermarket steel wheels fit, except wheelers.
