Stock wheel with 285's...Backspace problem?

3" rev on an 01 tacoma. Short on cash. Will a 285/75/16 have trouble with my stock 16x7's? I am not worried about tire rub on the frame or on the fenders. I am worried about the wheel itself making any contact with any of the components inside. Any info is appreciated, thanks, rob

Hey there man, I just got the 3" RevTek lift and Put a set of 285/75/r16's on, with the stock wheels, and they fit, no problem. I got about a 1/2" or 5/8" in the back, between the tire and control arm. I havent had any rubbing, just on the Frame when i turn at full compression. It should be fine!

what kind of mileage are you getting now with that set up... I am afraid to go with the lift and tires for fear that my mileage will drop like a rock

Yeah, the mileage didnt change a hole lot, and im ganna put exhaust on, to kinda help with that a little. I wouldnt worry about your mileage dropping gerastically. But instead of everything working out ok, and having no issues.

I was ganna do wheel spacers, But i was worried about problems and rubbing on fender or mud flaps. Did you have to do any trimming. Bc I really didnt want to have to do that.

I think the stock wheels are a 5.5" backspace and 7" wide. The steels I'm gonna get are a 4" backspace and a 8" wide wheel, but I'm going with a slightly narrower tire. It all depends on the combination.

Yeah, I just took a look at my tires, and they do rub on the uc arm when i go over bumps. I think I might just get wheels and do some triming if need be, cause i really like my tires. lol... Im sooo tired of these issues!
