    i want the tires to stand out more because it is only like an inch btw tire and front top of strut connector. is it suppose to be like this ? i had 3" lift put on it. Do i absolutly have to get deep rimms to solve this problem? any suggestions on which rims and where to get them?
    anyone?

    ^Exactly.

    What are you talking about? You give very little info so who knows. Do you have stock rims and tires? If you get aftermarket wheels with a different offset, that would solve your problem. Either that or spacers.

    umm i dont know any other way to say it?
    the tires/wheels are too far in. so they are too close to the top of struts in front. ok in the front there is a half moon shaped thing at top of struts.it is only like an inch to the tire. this seems way to close.
    yes i have stock rimms and tires. so only way to fix is to get all new rimms with deeper offset? and maybe spacers. can anyone suggest where to get these rimms for a reasonable price?

    The half moon shape thing you are referencing is a the upper control arm (I think).

    Running spacers will set your wheels farther out, so will getting aftermarket wheels.

    Rims are all a matter of personal preference.

    When do you sleep? :pccoffee:

    Lots of people have swapped out the stock wheels. The subject of the thread probably threw a lot of people since the topic has little to do with tires.

    As people have said, get wheel spacers if you're gonna keep the stock wheels. If you'll be replacing the wheels, look for ones with less backspacing to move the wheels outward.

    That 1" of space between the tire and upper control arm that you see is plenty unless you go with a dramatically wider tire. Along those lines, realize that there are limitations on the tire width that can safely be mounted on a given width rim. You'd typically not want a tire that's gonna overhang more that 3" or so on either side of the rim. For example, a 12.5" wide tire on an 8" rim is acceptable but pushing it. 8.5" wide rim would be better. 10" wide rim would work well but you'd start to run the risk of popping a bead in an off-camber offroad situation running low tire pressure.

    There's a lot to consider. Start by deciding how you'll use your truck (be realistic) and go from there.

    I thought that the larger the backspacing the further out they would be....for example the stock wheels have a 4" backspace and most people go 4.5 when the get aftermarket rims so they can put wider tires on....Then again I could be wrong...All my knowledege of wheels and tires comes from this forum:D. Could someone clarify this for me?

    I thought backspacing is the amount that the lug contact point is set in from the back side of the rim. Take the rim, lay it face down on the ground, lay a straight-edge across the top, and measure from the straight-edge to where the wheel contacts the hubs and that should be the backspacing. Small measurement = wheels will stick out farther.

    Of course, now I think I'm the one who's got it backwards. Damn you Wikipedia for having no entry for backspacing!!! :D

    yes mjp2 , that is what i am learning all over the net. but i am confused as how far which length backspacing will be from strut to tire? i dont wont some hip hop looking truck, i would like wider tires cause these factorys are soo skinny. and yes i sleep , i just have crazy hours cause of a car wreck when i was young causing me to have headaches all day everday so i have to sleep when my body and mind say to sleep thus it is sometimes in day and sometimes at night. i cannot ever be on a set schedule and i cant take sleeping meds cause i feel drugged up the next day cause of my bad matabolism. I do computer work out of my house on my own time schedule.
    also a negative offset will set them out to but i have no idea what measurement offset will do to my truck. i mean how do u guys know what measurement rims and tires to get before u go get . where is the truck/rim/tire test out place???
    and yes i tried to re-edit the title rt after but it wouldnt let me. i meant to say deep rimm

    Yo man! The flexible schedule of working from home sounds like the ideal situation for you! Bummer about what you're going through though. If you were local I'd be able to recommend an amazing chiropractor for you.

    I'm running these tires on my truck:
    http://www.performanceproducts4trucks.com/productpage.aspx?pid=111187

    16"x8", lug-centric, with 4.5" backspacing. I don't remember the exact size tires I'm running but they work out to just under 32" tall and about 11" wide. I lifted my truck 3" and think the stance is just about perfect between the lift, wheels, and tires. The tires come to the outside edge of the fenders, which I think it what you're looking for.

    You have any pictures of your truck to post?

    its not so flexible is the thing. my health dictates my shedule. i am thinkin about a chiropractor, been to all docs and neurosurgeons and there is nothing or no technology for my situation out at the time.
    how do i know if i need 6 or 6x5.5 bolt pattern?
    how far does yours stand out past the fender mjp2? and u have 4.5 inch backspacing which puts then how far from the struts?
    also what is your offest? do u have a pic of a side view of your truck u can send me and a direct back view?

    The late-generation 6-lug Tacomas have a 6x5.5 bolt pattern.

    You can kinda see the distance between the inside of the tire and the upper control arm in this shot. Note that I'm not running the stock UCAs, so you'll probably lose an extra half-inch of clearance with the stock hardware.

    Tire width from the rear:

    I know they're not the best shots for what you're looking for. I don't have any pictures specifically for wheel/tire offset, but I hope they help at least a little!
