Do you mean how do you figure the offset of the stock wheel? Or how would you figure the offset for an aftermarket wheel?

You should probably check the wheel/tire forum.

4.5" of backspacing is pretty much perfect for a 3" lifted 05+ Tacoma. That's what I have on my truck. This will also help you fit wider tires without rubbing the upper control arm. I think the stock wheels are 5" of backspacing. The less backspacing, the further out the rim will be away from the hub.

I lifted my 2001 Tacoma 2 1/2" and put on 285/75/16 (33.1X11.3") BFG Mud-Terrains. The tires rub the upper control arm when the suspension is extended. I want to go to 8" steel rims instead of the factory 7" rims. What backspacing should I have so the tires don't rub the upper control arm or stick out so far they rub the pinch weld or front bumper when turning?
