    I went from stock wheels to the Wheelers Steel Type B's. Tires are 265 75 R16 Goodyear Wrangler Authorities. The backspacing really does a lot with these wheels. there was a significant difference in spacing between the tire and the UCA's. I could barely fit my finger between the two with the stock wheels and now there is a good two inches or more in there. 285's maybe? The factory TPMS DOES work with these wheels. The differences in the pics may be subtle but I got what I was looking for. It seemed too tall and skinny before now it looks more proportional.

    I always liked steelies. Had them on my 86 4Runner. Right now I'm stock height 2010 TRD OR running 265/70/16 BFG ATs on the stock rims. But I'm thinking of swapping over to steelies when I tire change in 30k miles. So can I run 265/75/16s on those steelies without any lifting or trimming? Or will I still have to trim flaps? And what model # and backspacing are those?

    PS ... looks great!

    Looking good man. I have the same tires too. They are awesome for the price, they haven't let me down or stuck yet!

    I lifted mine prior to getting the wheels. But with the stock wheels I had no rubbing issues w/o a lift with those tires. With the different back-spacing of the steelies I couldn't guarantee anything for stock height.

    how much did they charge for shipping? I've heard they're prices are good, until they hit you with an absurd shipping cost.

    Shipping was pretty expensive at $120 bucks. they were in Oregon and I'm on the east coast in GA. also, the weight of each box was over 70 lbs. 2 Boxes...2 Wheels in each. Then a small box for the center caps and new lugs.
