    So im 17 years old, new to this forum (but not forums in general), and new to cars... I have a 2008 Taco double cab short bed TRD. It is completely stock right now.

    I've done some minor research and came to the conclusion about what rims and tires i want. Pro Comp 7005 (http://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/P...ast.aspx?t_c=11&t_s=210&t_pt=100073&t_pl=5356) and BFG All-Terrains with an Icon coilover in the front. Now i'm pretty lost on measurements.

    These measurements might be a little big or something but I need some insight.

    For tires: 285/75/16s,33" (i dont know much about offsets or any of that
    Wheels: 17", 17x9

    If any of this doesnt make sense i apologize :rolleyes:

    Those tires you posted are 16in and the wheels are 17in, won't work. If you want 17 in wheel you'll need tires that are made for a 17in rim. The last numeric in a metric tire size is the wheel size. 275/70R17 is for 17 in wheel.

    Oh thank you. So 275/70R17 BFG All Terrains, and what should the dimensions to the wheel be?

    If you want 33s and those wheels you'll want 285/70/17s and those wheels with a 4.5BS and 6x5.5 bolt pattern

    PXA7005-7883

    however the wheels you've chosen aren't hub centric so I would not recommend getting them
