    Hi Fellow Members,

    I'm trying to pick up a set of KMC Monster 18" rims. Per the ad, it has a backspacing of 6/5.5. It comes with Nitto Trail Grapplers 285/65/18.

    I am lifted approximately 3" on Bilstein 5100s and 885 coils in the front with 1/4 top spacer and aal in the rear.

    I don't mind minor trimming of the fender but do you guys think i'll run into any major issues with this set up? I don't want to have to cut into the frame. I do VERY minor off roading in dirt and mud about 2-3 times a year.

    THe owner had these on a 2nd gen access cab with a long travel kit. He said that he rubbed on the frame when he made a full turn. Would it be different if I had a double cab long bed?

    Please help.

    Thanks!

    The 6x5.5 is the bolt pattern, not the back spacing. Find out what the BS is and post it up.

    The seller says it's 5.xx back spacing. He doesn't have the exact decimal. Here's his description:

    "Selling my 6/5.5 backspacing 5.xx Monsters off my Tacoma. Comes with Trail Grapplers with 75% rear tread and 50 % on the front."

    I called him and he think's it's 5.6 bs.
