    Hey I recently just did my DJM 3/4 drop on my 04 Reg Tacoma. I’ve been trying to find what other people lowered are riding with (rim, offset, tire size, etc.)

    Right now, I’m riding with some stock wheel, The tires are 235/75/15 which rubs more than I would ever like. I read in the forum is that the tires shouldn’t be any more than 225 being this lowered.

    I’m currently looking at some Gramlights 57DR gun blue 18x8.5 but I want to know what offset I should be considering before I purchase them. As well as tire size to have a decent ride.

    My bad g! I’m actually considering the 17x9 so that I can have a little more tire for comfort.

    You got any recommendations? These 17x9 wheels come in offsets of +12, +22, and +38. The other bit I got from reading through the forum is 3.75” or 4.5” backspacing but I don’t know whether these apply just to lifted, stock, or lowered vehicles.

    Man, 35 is thin AF! But damn, just from looking at your car, I’m seriously considering getting a S-runner lip kit. Suck that I can only find Duraflex and VIS kits that are fiberglass.

    You think I should go with the +12 or +22 based off your 17’s?
