    I'm finally in the market for wheels and tires after having the Tacoma for a year. I made a final decision to get the Level 8 ZX 17x9 (0 offset/5" backspace I believe) wheels and wrap Falken Rocky Mountain ATS II tires around them in 265/70/17. I'm not planning on doing a lift and was wondering if I will have any issues with rubbing? Also since the wheel has a 9" width will there be noticeable bulging of the sidewalls? Hopefully I can get them ordered and mounted by this coming week :D.

    With that offset, you shouldn't have any rubbing issues. If you do, it should be slight, and easily remediable with minor trimming, or at worst removal of the mud flaps. I'm running the same size wheels and tires, and still rub the flaps with 2" of lift, but my wheels are -12 offset.

    There won't be any noticeable sidewall bulge from running a 265 on a 9", here's what mine look like:

    Perfect! Thanks for the input. Can't wait to see how everything turns out when everything is mounted. BTW great looking truck you go there!

    Another question:

    P or LT? I don't do much off road. I usually just use the truck as DD and hauling my quad around to Gorman.

    Can you confirm you got the 0 offset? Any rubbing issue?


    Thanks,
