    Hi,

    I'm looking at a set of wheels with these specs:
    Size: 16x8
    Bolt Pattern: 6-5.5
    Back Spacing: 4"
    Offset: -12 mm

    The wheels will be paired with 245/75/16 size tires but will be upgraded to 265/75/16 size tires in the future.

    Will the wheels fit without any trimming or rubbing with either tire size on the stock height? If not, how much of a lift is necessary for there to be no trimming or rubbing? This is for a 2009 4x4 TRD-Off Road.

    They may rub because of the 4" backspacing. That's close to pushing the wheel out too far, causing it to rub on the outside of the tire. Some rub with 4" backspacing, some don't.

    4.5" to 5.5" would be better for your application.

    Glad I checked in here before purchasing even though I really wanted these wheels. Thanks to both you guys!
