    Hello everyone, I am hoping that I can get some good advice and hopefully some pictures to help my dilemma, I am looking to buy a set of wheels and tires for my wifes 2010 Tacoma double cab 4X4, she wants a set of black 17" with 265/70/17's or 18" wheels with 265/65/18's, I have asked a few members what their wheel specs were because I liked the pics that they had posted, what is frustrating is, I get a different offset and different back spacing from every member that I ask...?

    The truck is not and will not be lifted at all, and I want the wheels to have a nice wide stance to it and to fill the wheel wells a little bit without rubbing. Please help me out, maybe post your trucks pics and give me backspacing and offset?

    My wife and i appreciate any and all info that you can provide.

    THANKS IN ADVANCE, Mr. and Mrs. Dunkin T. Bags.:D

    Here is a picture of what i did for my wife's 07 TACO TRD with the 17" rims. I too wanted something to "fill the wells" and these were a perfect fit with the stock 4x4 sport. One thing i also wanted from my radical off road days while i lived in Nevada...Tall Narrow tires. And the 245 75r 17 are excellent for off road, snow, and the wet roads we have on the oregon coast. (Bridgeston Dueler Revo 2)

    My wife absolutely LOVES this set up on her daily driver!
    This month we are black-powder-coating the stock 17" rims at our local tire center.
