    I'm interested in putting the stock black FJ Steelies on a new 2012 Tacoma TRD Offroad with a 3" lift. I want to keep a 16" rim. Do 16" Black Steelies exist? I have only seen 17"!?!

    Also, what is the biggest tire I can safely put on a 16" rim with the Toyotech 3" lift?

    The 17 FJ steelies not only are not the right size for the 16 tires, but they also don't have the ideal backspacing to run 285s with your 3" lift. You could only run 265s.

    If you run these wheelers type a steelies above in 16, you can run the 285/75/16s with some trimming.

    Thanks! I appreciate the help. Can I run that 16" steel rim with a 275/75/16 tire? I think the width is just shy of 11"

    Yep you should be fine wit that size because of your lift.
