    I have been following the many threads on offset and back spacing. It seems that 4.5" bs is the standard for 6"lifted 05+ tacos. Question - how far out of the fenders will a rim 20x9, 4.5 bs, -12mm offset and 275/65/20 vs 20x10, 4.56 bs, -24mm offset same tires, will it rub the UCAs

    If the rim is the same backspacing but 1" wider, it will stick out 1" further, not 1/2".

    If the backspacing is the same, then all of the increased rim width is on the outer edge of the rim.

    If your getting 275's don't buy a 10" wide wheel the side wall is not going to look good, stick with the 9"

    And a 20/9 with a 4.5bs shouldn't stick out much the FJ rims are 8" wide with a 4.5bs and 285's don't stick out too far.

    Yeah you were thinking that for the same offset, the extra inch gets split into two. Backspacing already takes that into account.
