    hi was wondering if anyone else has had a problem with rubbing on the inside of the fender. i put in on 285/70/17 nitto tera grapplers. tires are too big for my 06 double cab tacoma. first rubbed on my control arm so i put new rims on with a bigger offset and now rub on the inside of the fender. does a guy trim it up and cut a bit off? thanks

    In order to fit those 285's, you need wheels with 4.5" Backspacing, a 3 inch lift, and you will need to trim a lot of plastic, and possibly chop the cab mount.

    ^ what he said.

    where exactly is it rubbing, i know you said inside of the fender but inside back when you turn or front? you might just be rubbing on the little black plastic nub that is front bottom sticking down

    I have the same size of tires with a readylift 2.75". I just had to do a little trimming on the inside of the fender flare, removed the front mudflaps and the plastic coverings in the front attached to the wheel well since I didnt want to cut them. No rubbing now that I can tell.

    ya removing the plastic covering maby would have been a better idea. I really didn't like cutting up my truck. it sure looks good though. And whats this backspacing your talking about? Im unfamiliar with it? I would also like to know how you can take out the orange class in the headlights if possible. thanks for your help

    Backspacing is calculated by using rim width and offset. Here's a handy chart series of charts to help explain.

    Also, you can take out the lens in the headlight by baking them and prying them apart. Search for BHLM (black headlight mod)

    I think that is all pending on -what tires and bumper you have. Some tires are -just a little bigger.

    I installed Revo's 285/75/16 on XD Hoss with 4.5 backspacing.
    My truck is lifted 1.5" on the left and 1" right side. I have a Relentless bumper and in the street I have no rubbing at all.
    I removed the frond mud flaps and thats it.
    I test it on the street (loaded with four guys) but I am pretty sure that off road would be another story.
