    Ok so I purchased some KMC Rockstars for my 09 Tacoma Off Road... I am got the 3 inch fox shocks on the way, and OME leafs for the rear... Question is about the Wheels... Most wheels that work for this fitment is +35 mm offset mine has 0 mm.. What is the worst thing that I could run into?? Rubbing, and excess trimming?? Will a wheel spacer correct the offset?? Anyone have any ideas??

    I ordered my pro comp wheels with a 0mm offset. It all depends on the backspacing..whats the backspacing on the wheels? 4.5?

    You were right... It is 4.5... So wheels spacers or no? Try it out and see what happens??

    You don't need spacers if the backspacing is 4.5

    Here is another question I have... I swapped out my tire pressure sensors so I have the stocks in my new wheel/tire setup... Do I need a different valve or anything? My stock tires held 35 psi and the new BFGs hold 80 psi... Any ideas??

    As far as I know when you have all the tires aired up where you want them just hit the tpms reset button. It will calibrate the system for the current pressure and give you warnings from there.
