    Does anyone know the backspacing on these FJ Wheels? They are the 17 inch, non-Trail Team ones.

    I am about to run 285s on my 01 and would like to know if these will rub against my UCA. Thanks!

    Thanks man. I think these are 4 5/8" but I just don't know if these will create rubbing for 285s on my 2001.

    I just picked some of those up and the BS is closer to 4 3/4". I'll go double check in a minute.

    Yep, 4 3/4" Backspace.

    So if I need a 4.5" Backspace to fit 285s without problems, are those too small? Or are they ok?

    Well it looks like it's time for some Wheel Spacers...
    For the Spidertrax, will I have to get the Hub Centric Spacers(Like the 2nd Gen. Tacomas) because this is a newer wheel?

    Put a wheel up on my truck for fun. Still gotta get tires, but this one is a spare that hasn't been used.

    Might paint them Black or Graphite!
