    Has anyone spaced out their FJ wheels? I'd love to see pics.

    I had a set of Spidertrax spacers with my stock TRD Offroad wheels, and they seemed much wider than my FJ wheels. I thought the backspacing difference between the two was 1", and the spacers are 1.25", but it looks like way more than a quarter inch difference between the two setups.

    Also, any rub issues if you've spaced your set of wheels?

    Wont work. Essentially you would need to chop off the body mount for the wheel to be able to turn. It creates way to much -offset. If my math is correct the backspacing with the FJ wheels + spidertrax spacers would be 3.25"

    alright, that's what I was fearing.

    Are these really 1" further out than the TRD Offroads? I haven't had my truck without spacers in such a long time, I've forgotten what a stock width Tacoma looks like. These FJ wheels are sweet, but they don't look 1" different to my untrained eye.

    Is 1080 with stock rims and 1081 with the FJs?

    Can't tell for sure, how much wider do they look to you?

    I'm still a bit confused... My tire tread is still within my fender wall, and I see plenty of Tacos with at least 1-1.5" of tread outside the fenders. Am I missing something?

    Anyone else?

    Are there any other spacer options similar to spidertrax? I ran those spacers for a long time on my stock wheels without issue. I wouldn't hesitate to pick up a set of 3/4-1" spacers to give this a try if they were of similar build quality.

    There's got to be a way to get these wider, I do miss my wider stance!

    I was talking with someone on here who is running 17x9 w/ 4.5" backspace. I'm trying to find out what kind of rub he is experiencing, because this would put the outside rim lip 4.5" out from the mounting surface. The TRD wheels are 3" out from the mounting surface, so he's 1.5" wider/side than my truck.

    I'm not certain that I want to go that far out, since my rims are only 7.5" in width, but it begs the question... how far can you go?
