    Hello Everyone, this is a great site.

    I just got a 2008 Tacoma TRD Sport, and I Just installed a 2.5" Toytec front spacer, I want to put some 285/70/17 BF Mud Terrains, with the 17" stock wheels. Has anyone tried that?? Do you guys know if that will work??:confused::confused::confused:

    i'm not positive, but i think that would be pushing the width limits of that rim. its only 7.5" wide.

    well...i just went to the nitto page and they say their 285/70/17 will fit a 7.5" to a 9" rim...so u might be ok w/ that. but u'll definately rub. i've got the same setup as u and i plan on running a 255/75/17 bfg mud terrain
