    Ive looked everywhere and can't really see how far the wheels stick out of the wheel well without a spacer on a second gen Tacoma. Ive been debating whether or not to get these wheels because i dont like the sunken in look. Has any used spacers with these? Id like the wheels to stick out as much as my offroad trd wheels with spidertrax spacers.

    If you add spacers to the trd FJ wheels, which are already 4.5" bs, you will rub on the outside of the tire.

    Witt spacers, the trd fjs will stick out 1" more than your trd offroad wheels.

    The sports have 5.5" BS the offroads have 5.25"BS so if the FJ's have 4.5" you'll gain .75".

    If you add spacers to the wheels, which are already 4.5" bs, it will push them too far out and will lead to rubbing due to the increased turning arc.
