    I'm a little confused when it comes to backspacing and offset of a wheel. If i am running 285/75/16s and a 3" lift, will a wheel with a 0 offset work on my 04 tacoma?

    Thanks in advance

    Depends on the wheel size. Offset helps determine the backspace when it is considered with the width. Figure out how wide you want to go with the wheels, then think about offset and backspace coupled with tire width.

    Here's a handy chart to convert offset to backspace and visa versa. It's about a quarter of the way down the page.

    I guess what i really want to know is, will having the 0 offset push my tires further away from the uca's and the fender wells? If it pushes my tires toward the outside of my truck, how much would it push it out. I have the Stock wheels on there right now.

    Like bean said, it depends not only on the offset, but also the width. What width are you looking at getting?

    Backspacing of 4.5 will push the rim out about an inch more than stock.
