    I am looking at a set of 2008 fj wheels to put on truck. he said the bs was 6 in I dunno what the offset is but would I need to do spidertrax with this setup? with more backspacing the inside of the wheel will be closer to the UCA and calipers right?

    I think the FJ trds are 4.5" and the regular FJ wheels are 5.5" but I'm not positive.

    so then I should be alright. is there any chance of them rubbing on the calipers or uca? but if it does spacers can fix that

    Should be good to go with those. For the tpms, if you have alloys already, then they should swap over.
