    Im not very familiar with wheel spacers and have no idea if I would need them or not. Im looking to buying some 17" Mickey Thompson wheels with 285/70/17 tires on them. Would I or would I not need spacers on my stock 2009 Taco DC?

    If you get the right offset/backspacing on the wheels, spacers shouldnt be required.

    Get the ones with 4.5" backspacing and you will be good to go.

    Yep, 4.5" BS and a 2.5-3" lift and ur good to go with that setup. Should be minimal rubbing possibly on the body mount and lower part of the fender. Some get away with no rubbing and some have to do a body mount chop which is something in the works for myself right now.:D
