    I have a 2011 Tacoma - Will be getting 2.5 lift with bilstiens all the way around and ICON leaf pack.

    Looking to get this wheel.

    0638-8966
    17x9
    Black
    6 on 5.5
    -12 mm
    4.473226 backspace

    I am going to wrap them in BFG AT 32s -- 265/70/17

    Few questions

    1-Are they going to stick out too far for such a small lift? Anybody have pics of a 2nd gen taco with 4.5 backspace and a 3 in lift?

    2-Will they rub?

    bone stock for now
    i just put a set of these 16 x 8 sliver ones on my '08 dc with close to a 3" lift with a 265/75/16 tire.

    they are a zero offset and 4.5" BS there barely stick out past the fenders they are almost flush. not sure how much with a 265/70 and the minus 12 offset. with what i went with i don't have any rubbing issues at all.


    i can work on getting some pics if you want.

    OP: Your setup will stick out 1" more than bgdbwlf's, because your wheels are one inch wider, and have the same backspacing.
