    I am contemplating getting aftermarket wheels for my 2011 Tacoma. Are there any issues with the offset? Would I need to get some sort of spacer? Or can I bolt them right up and be good to go?

    I am going to run the stock size 245 75 16. Just a more aggressive tire.

    You'll want wheels that are 16x8, 6x5.5 bolt pattern, with between 4.5" and 5.5" of backspacing. Also, you can go up to 265/75/16 no problem.

    Also be aware some brands of 16s don't clear the bake calipers, so make sure someone else on here is running the wheels before you buy.

    Gonna revive this thread instead of making a new one. Right now I'm running 265/75/16's (Bridgestone Dueler A/T's) on my stock TRD Offroad Rims. I have a 3 inch lift and aftermarket UCA's (see my profile details to the left). I am currently using spidertrax 1.25 wheel spacers, and I love the look and stance my truck has, so I would want to keep that stance and look as much as possible. I eventually want to upgrade to the larger 255/85/16 tire. For wheels, what specs (rim width, backspacing, offset, etc.) should I look for to keep the wider stance WITHOUT a spacer, and fit the 255's? I'd appreciate anybody that wants to chime in and point me in the right direction so I can narrow down my search, thanks!
