    I have tires already, they are BFG all terrains 265/75/16. Excuse my ignorance but I don't know anything about wheels and tires. What I need to know is what rim will these tires fit on. I'm not sure if I need to go 16x7, 16x8 or if either one of those are possible. Here is the link to the wheels I am going to order. Any help would be appreciated, I don't wanna order the wrong ones.

    16x8, 6 on 5.5 bolt pattern and 4.5" backspacing, and you still might need to grind the backs of the rims for caliper clearance.

    Thanks for the reply....I'd like to avoid having to grind anything if I can. Is there anything I can do to avoid that? thinner wheel? smaller backspacing?

    No, you will need to worry about backspacing if you plan on running 285s to clear the UCA.. Most 16s will fit, i know XDs will.

    They're not 285's, they are 265's. Does that mean that I won't have any problems fitting them?

    Kinda worded it wrong, (on a phone) You will only need to worry about BS if you plan on running 285s**** No you wont the 265/75/16s will be fine with any wheel.

    Just a suggestion, look at the XD Hoss, i got them and love them. They're fairly inexpensive and look good plus they have a 4.5 BS, if you plan on running 285s down the road. Looking at the Tacomas on here with em will eventually change you're mind ;)

    You won't have to worry about caliper clearance becuase you have a first-gen. Only 2nd gen's have caliper issues with 16" rims.

    I am not as concerned with caliper clearance as I am about the tires fitting the wheels.

    Does anyone know 100% that the size tires I have will fit on the 16x8 wheels on the link I posted?

    I will eventually run bigger tires. The plan is to get it paid off soon and turn it into a woods toy, I have a ton of trails right around where I live. But for now its a daily driver/work truck and I need it to be able to get onto the highway(4 cyl) and with a 285 I don't think that is going to happen quickly enough haha

    3" OME lift with 885 coils on nitrocharger 90000 shocks with 5mm trim packer on driver's side, TC UCAs, Rear OME Dakar leafs with nitrocharger shocks, All-pro U-bolt flip kit and 3* Toytec shims, extended rear brakelines, 16" Raceline Rockcrusher 887 wheels with 3.6" backspacking, BFG KM2 305/70/16 tires, Doug Thorley header, Doug Thorley catback exhaust, Volant CAI with ram air, Weathertech floor mats, Kicker 12" sub, Kenwood 500W RMS amp, Relentless Fab front and rear bumpers, 4.88 gears, custom flatbed with swing out tire carrier
    265/75/16 would work on either a 7" or 8" wheel. I would recommend the 8" wide so you can have the option of getting wider tires in the future if you ever wanted to. I ran that tire size on a 8" wide and it was fine. And if you click that photo it'll bring up more pics when I was running that setup.
