    For the 285's.

    For the 265's, anywhere between 4.5" and 5.5" will be fine.

    The tire manufacturers list the approved rim width range for each size of tire on their websites.

    With your 3" lift a 33" tire isn't too difficult to fit (given the correct wheel specs) In 16" I'd recommend looking at the 285/75R16 and in 17" look at the 285/70R17 size.

    When it comes to wheels, as stated above a wheel with a 4.5" backspace will give you the clearance to run a 285mm+ wide tire so if you think you may want to run the 285 now and possibly wider in the future a wheel with a 4.5" backspace would be good to have.

    For reference:
    16x8 with a 0mm offset = 4.5" Backspace
    16x8.5 with a -6mm offset = 4.5" BS

    17x8.5 -6mm offset = 4.5" BS
    17x9 -12mm offset = 4.5" BS.


    Here's a link to the wheels we carry for your truck. We can also special order quite a few brands that aren't listed so if you find something you like let us know. We'll do our best to be competitive for you. Link (offset is listed in the wheels size): http://www.discounttiredirect.com/d...011&mk=TOYOTA&selectedModel=TACOMA&vid=019279
