Guys...should i order Type A or Type B? I have a 2010 OR. I don't want them to stick out too far with my 265/75/16 but want them to stick out farther than my stock...which are a +32mm offset, right? That should equal a BS more than 5, right?

The Type A have 4.5" BS, while the Type B have 4" BS. The less backspacing, the more they will stick out. Stock backspacing is 5.5".

Will the 4.0 BS work though? I thought it needed to be at least 4.5??

Nope, see this thread....stock BS for the TRD offroad is 5.25 (I was thinking of the TRD sport when I said 5.5)

4.5" BS is the most popular choice for aftermarket wheels for tacomas because they allow you to fit 285's (after a 3 inch lift), by pushing the wheels out around an inch over stock.

4.0 pushes the wheels out FURTHER than 4.5....

What do you "need" it to be 4.5" for?

I thought I remember reading where a guy had 16x8 rims he was trying to fit on his 2nd gen taco and they would not clear the break calipers. That is what I meant by "need".

Ah, well that has way more to do with the type of rim than the backspacing. A little less backspacing will help, but there are some brands of 16" rims that won't fit.

The wheelers ones fit fine, as they were designed for tacomas.
