    I'm not sure which size wheel to go with. Any pros and cons? Could you please let me know your thoughts? The tire I'm going to go with is 285/70/17 Good year Duratrac.

    Thank-you!

    17x8 is your best bet...if you go with the 9" your going to rub the cab mount even more..

    I'm not sure what Tacoma you have...I see it says TRD Sport on your profile

    I have an 05 Pre-Runner Sport and I'm running 18 X 9 Rims with no rubbing issues at all

    I'm running 265-60-18 Tires also

    I'm very happy with going from 7.5" wide rims to the 9" wide rims

    Much better handling and steering response with the 18 X 9

    Just make sure to stick with an off set like +10, +11, +12, +13, +14 this way the rim won't stick out towards the curb side too much

    My Back Space is 5.40"

    Here are pics of my 9" wide fuel off-road wheels

    ok sorry just noticed you wanna run 285 size tires

    I'm not sure if the 9" wide wheels would be a good fit for you then?

    sorry
