16x8 Boost Fuel wheel and different tires

I know I am good with the Nitto Terra Grapplers on my stock suspension. 265/70r 16.

I'm wanting to get the Boost 16x8 wheel from Fuel. I have read some wheels won't clear the front brakes. Anybody have these wheels and will it clear the brakes? Will I run into any problems with this wheel and tire combo?

I also see Nitto has these tires in 75R size, but has E & D ratings. Some of them also have 123Q and 119Q. What does all of this mean?

I just recantly put 16x8 rims on my 2012 4x4 double cab and they fit just fine.. i could be wrong but i believe the trd models might have bigger brake calipers... but mine fit and cleared fine although not the same rims aas your going with.. mine are 4.5 backspaceing and -.06 backspaceing.. here is mine i know the tires look small but i am collecting parts for my lift and putting back money back for tires as money doesnt come easy

Its steel wheels you have to worry about in 16" not alloys, try searching the forum for someone running those wheels and that size and ask them, looks like youll be fine, ask this guy maybe http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/whe...e-mistake.html

E and D mean load ratings, typically E is overkill for our trucks, D would be a better choice, the higher the load rating the heavier the tire. Just make sure you get the proper backspacing/offset and you wont have to worry about clearing the calipers. Depending on the offset you can probably run 265/75/16 with maybe minor trimming and removing the front mudflaps
