    Well I thought I had it all worked out...Went to order my tires and wheels from local and very reputable 4x4 store, helo black maxx 6 and 285 70 17 duratracs, they say that the maxx 6 will rub as they are 17x9! These folks have worked on alot of tacos and say they are too wide and I have to find 17x8 with bs 4 to 5 range. Talk about disappointing! sorry ... just have to rant

    I know several people who have 17x9 with 4.5 backspacing and they work fine. :confused:

    A lot of shops just go by what a website or piece of paper says. They don't want to be held responsible if something doesn't fit right. They say a lot of wheels/ tires won't fit when in reality they do..

    thanks for your pic rivet joint...the blue and black look great together btw...what is your wheel size and tire size? do you have a spacer? Spent hours on this site doing the research... black maxx 6 17x9 bs 4.5 12o/s with duratracs 285 70 17(already have 3"revtech lift)...was sure the numbers would work......any info is appreciated

    my moto metals are 17x9 4.5" BS and -12 offset and i'm running 12.50's so the narrower 285's will have no problem if the wheels are the same specs as mine. :)

    2chains,

    I've got the wheels in 17x9, BS 4.5" 12mm OS. Right now I have 265/70/17 Nittos. I'm probably going to bump it up to 265/75 sometime soon. I have the 5100s on now and they did rub a bit on the inside fender before the lift but now they never rub...even off road. I don't have any spaces and the tires stick out about an inch past the fenders. I've had the wheels for about a year and no chips, scrapes, or anything else. I get a ton of compliments for them.

    Hope that helps! Have a good one.
