    i have read the threads, not as in much detail as some would prefer yet still have a question. I have an 07 lwb 4x4 tacoma. I want to keep the sport rims that came one it but want a bigger tire. While looking, should i look for a tire to fit a 17" rim or a 17" rim or does it matter?

    Thanks

    :confused:

    If you want to keep your sport rims you will need 17" tires. Not sure what the confusion is.

    Thanks for the input guys. I need it. The only reason I had to ask if it was 17 or 17.5 is bc the annual issue of the Ultimate Wheel and Tire Guide stated an 07 had 17.5 width rims. I have some spacers bought with the lift kit.
