    Brief review: 06 4x4 access cab. 3" toytec spacer w/ long AAL. I want to put 285/70/17 BFG All Terrains.

    Will I need to get back spacers for that size tire? It's news to me. This might be a silly question but will they make my tires extend wider than my wheel well? Also, will those tires rub?

    Your gonna have a little rubbing on the mud flab, and maybe the pinch weld, but those are easy fixes. The wheel back spaceing you want, IIRC, is 4.5". :)

    IIRC means "If I Remember Correctly"
    Are you wanting to run stock wheels? The 4.5" back spaceing is for new wheels. If your want to run stock wheels, I think your gonna need 1" wheel spacers.

    I appreciate funny stuff. I took a moment and laughed at myself. Thanks. Yes, I plan to run my stock TRD sport rims. 1" spacer?

    Hey, Tim. I have never heard of anyone breaking their calipers from trail damage. :confused: If you get a 4.5" back spaced wheel to fit 285's, odds are you are also getting a wider wheel to acomodate the extra tire width, thus negating the loss in caliper protection. Post a link to caliper damage.
    FWIW, Your priceing for re gearing seems kinda high. My last regear was only 1150.00 front and rear.
    Last but not least, If you are rubbing your tire on the coil, you have a broken spindle.

    I understand why they put the calipers where they do, I have just never met anyone who would continue climbing when they blow a bead. Still, even if whoever was stupid enough to keep going, they would surely rip the break lines off, and the ABS wires before causeing harm to the calipers.
