    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

    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
