    I have a 2003 Tacoma TRD w the 265 70 16s. A buddy has some 265 70 17 BFGs he'll give me for $150. Sooooooooooooo.............. I'm studying rims to get. I assume I can put them on a 17" x 8" rim, but I'm not certain on what I need for back/rear spacing and offset. Can anyone help?

    Thanks!

    Engage Offroad long travel front and rear with some fat tires.
    x2 on 4.5"

    but if you may end up in the future, upsizing to 265-75 or 285-75 or 305-70 or bigger, then try to find a wheel at 4" or 4.25" backspace, but i don't see too many wheels in 17s running that low of a backspace...

    also take into consideration, that once your buddy's tires wear out, will you be able to afford the same tires brand new?
