    So Im debating wheather or not to purchase a set of Roto's. What Im looking to get is a set of;

    1) Rota Grid Off-Road, 16x8, 6x139.7
    2) Rota Grid Type B, same size
    3) Rota Grid Type X, same size

    I couldnt find any specs on the back spacing. Im really new to the truck rim world and a little confused. Im thinking the the stock offset is +20 on my 06 TRD Sport Double Cab. The Rota's come in +10, +15. Will that look alright on my truck? Will they stick out to far, or be sunk in?

    I do plan on going with a 3" lift within the next year as well, im not sure if that makes a different or not but I would like to get a little help from the knowledgable members here on the board.

    Thanks

    Wasn't aware rota made truck wheels. They look like konigs. How do they compare to konigs?

    OP, I know there is a chart on here that converts the offset and bolt pattern to the backspacing. Unfortunately, I'm on TW through the phone so can't really get you the link to it.

    Stock offset is +25 mm on the TRD sport wheels, which is 5.25" backspacing on 7.5" wide wheel.

    We need to know the tire size you plan on running in order to know which offset is best for you.

    I would imagine they do not compare favorably in any category except price.

    The plan is to have 265/70/16. This is the reply I got back stating the offsets of each.

    "1 grid offroad *+ 10, concave spoke
    2 grid type b and type x, similar model.
    Grid Type B +10 offset
    Grid Type X +5 offset *or-5"

    The only one of those that will allow you to ever run anything more than a 265 would be the -5 offset. If you always plan to run 265's then any of those would work.
