    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    I disagree... believe they will. IIRC the 17x9 Moto Metals have a 4.5" BS and -12mm offset. My 17x9 Racelines have a 5" BS and a 0 offset which pulls them in 1/2" closer to my spindles as compared to the MM's, yet at stock height I rubbed the mudflaps with my 265/70/17 Cooper ST's. That extra 1/2" the MM's stick out would only exaggerate the issue that I had on my truck. :cool:

    I have that set up and they DO rub....:p

    I had to trim a little tiny area on the rear inner area of the fender and the 'knob' thing that sticks down on the front fender/bumper area, I had to cut that off and about an inch more higher....bad explanation, but maybe you will understand when you look at your truck..I really need to take some pics as I've answered this a lot.

    I'd still go with that set-up especially if you plan a lift in the future. It only rubbed on sharp turns, like into parking spots or the driveway so you could drive it without trimming without any issues. :cool:
