    So currently i am running a 265/70r17 on the TRD sport 17in rims, i am considering spending a bit more coin and getting wheel spacers with 285's, but am still on the fence so i wanted to see what some different opnions are/what ya'll think. I included a picture so it could be seen how it sits now. This is my daily driver. Vote it up guys let me know what ya think!

    Just another option for you , I went 275/70/17 , no rub , no spacers

    You could also go 255/80/17 without spacers , no rub

    There is a lot of talk on here about spacers. A lot run them on here and a lot are against them. I too considered them with my stock sport wheels but came to the conclusion that they will cause extra wear on the bearings. I decided that between them costing not that much less than a set of aftermarket wheels and imo the aftermarket wheels are not near as bad on the bearings, pending the offset anyway. I do like the look of the stock sport wheels with spacers though. This is just my opinion.
