    I was thinking about putting a set of dick cepek wheels on my truck but im not sure how they would look. I was going to go with the 17x9 and with either 265/75/17 or 285/70/17. I just don't know how the -12 offset would look but please let me know what you think.

    I have the dick's (haha) on my truck but with the stock prerunner 245/75/16s. I like the offset, as it sticks out slightly from under the fender flares but not too much. You can check out the pics in my gallery. :)

    anyone know if the brake calipers on a trd off road will effect the fitting of a dick cepek 16" rim? i know the sport calipers are a little bit bigger, hence the use of 17" rims, so i was just wondering before i buy if it'd effect it at all. the backspacing is 4.5" and i figure since my trd off road came with 16s it should be fine?

    thanks for any info. :)

    I put 285/70/16 Dick Cepek on my stock rims....I have a 3" suspension lift & the front tires rub when turning too far right...I have put spacers on & it did help some...I love the way the tires look on my truck !
