    Hey everybody looking to buy some aftermarket wheels and I figured this is the best place to find some help. I really like the KMC Enduros and my second favorite is the American Racing ATX Artillery Wheels. I'm having a bit of trouble deciding which backspacing and offset and all that I need for a 17x9 wheel. As of now I run 255/80/17 km2's (yes pizza cutters) and will most likely run 285/70/17 in the near future. Just want to make sure that what ever I get will fit both of these tires. Looking for a wider stance so hopefully these wheels will help out. Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    The 255's aren't aproved for a 9" wide wheel. So you'll have to commit to the 285 if you go with 9's.

    You'll want 4.5" backspacing for the 285's.

    If you want to stick to the 255's, look for an 8" wide wheel with between 4.5 and 5.5" bs

    So is there a wheel I can go with now that will fit both the 255 and 285? Or am I just going to have to hold off on the wheels until I get my 285?

    I know this doesn't answer your question but you mention you're wanting to go wider..have you thought about wheel spacers?

    I have but since I also want new wheels I just figured I would get some that do both and knock out two birds with one stone.

    I know guys are running the 16" KMC Enduro on their trucks. I have been looking around locally and the KMC dealer says the wheel will not work on my truck and that they do not make it in a 16 anymore. F***********!!!!

    Really running outta options for a 16" wheel. My tires are still decent and do not want to shell out for 17" wheels and tires.

    All I really want is a Black steel wheel

    Any help guys
    thx

    KPT is correct. I've seen those wheels before on a Tacoma so I know they offer them in the correct bolt pattern that you'll need.

    Have you seen the Stealth-6 wheel? It's coming out in a couple of months and has similar styling cues.
