    Yes.
    With my tires looking like they just went through a nascar race and winter rapidly approaching im getting ready to fire on this combo. For some reason i'm not feeling to confident in the specs. so i'm looking for a little reassurance. Just want to try and get the best fit for the Taco. I have a 3 inch lift and TC ucs's.

    Think im staying with 265/70/17's just so there will not be any, trimming, re-gearing or random ass issue that they might cause.

    Thanks in advance guys!

    A -12 offset is a tad aggressive, 0 offset is best IMO. With a 265 and the 3" lift, I dont think there will be any rubbing issues and if so they'd be minor and easy to remedy. (like forming the front inner fenders w/ a heat gun, or possibly removing the front mudflaps) With 285's, maybe a little bit of rub depending on if you 'wheel hard, etc.

    Yes.
    Thanks Relentless. I have tried finding a set with anything other that a -12 offset but have had no luck. As far as the tire size im just staying with the 265 to save me the hassles.

    Yeah its pretty tough to find alot of the newer wheel designs in anything but the -12 offset. Ive noticed that as well. 265's look pretty good with a 3" lift, heres my truck some time ago running 265 Cooper Discoverers:cool:

    5100's all around, fronts at 1.75". TSB leaf pack + Toytec TSB AAL
    I've got the same wheels you posted about above, 4.53 BS and all. I think they look fine (not too aggressive). The tread of the tire is still under the fender (not by much though). That'll be an excellent combo with those tires!

    Yes.
    Thanks Guys! Took about 20 mins for me to fall in love with these. I had them put on Friday morning, and just so happened I had a trip planned for this weekend to Cleveland OH. So, within hours I put 300 miles on them, a little over 700 when I got home. Truck rides sooooooo much better! Cheapest/best lookin' MT IMO. Very impressed how quiet these are. I had 33 Wranglers on my old chevy and those were very loud compared to these. Gota go find some rain/snow/mud/sand and I'll write another review :D
