    hey guys, i know the answer to my question is on here somewhere but i cant find it. i have new tires that are 245/75-16 and i am looking to get a new wheel to put them on. i was looking at getting a pair of Wheeler's but i am not sure about the back space and rubbing on the caliper. I am looking at this web sight http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/tacomawheels.htm

    will the weight of the wheelers steel rims (with are 37pounds) and some 265/75r16 goodyear wrangler mtr with kevlar (which weight 54 pounds) drastically affect the on and off road driving with my 2.7L? im worried the weight will be to much

    That's a tough question to answer. It will definitely decrease your mileage, but not sure how much.
