    I have a 2004 tacoma. I have a set of BFG all terrain 32x11.5 tires. I want to put them on a set of 15x8 rims with -19 offset and 3.7 backspacing. Can anyone tell me if I will have any trouble with rubbing on the mudflaps or anywhere else. my truck does not have a lift in it.

    i don't a have a definite answer, but i believe they're going to rub. at stock height, i was barely clearing with 265/70/17. the shallow negative offset isn't helping your cause either.

    On a first gen tacoma the backspacing is either +20 or + 25, I don't think the negative backspace is gonna help you. There's a dumbass on here complaning about his calipers rubbing, but he doesn't want to use spacers, doesn't want to grind the calipers, but buys wheels with negative backspace and bitches because they rub. Don't be like that dumbass

    A little harsh, but I do want to add that rubbing on the caliper has nothing to do with the wheels having a negative offset. It's more so the design of the spokes and/or mounting pad of the wheel. Too much negative offset and you're more prone to rub on the cab mount and/or front bumper depending on the tire size.

    thanks for your input. Sounds like I will have to lift the front end an inch or two to get this to work.
