    Just installed 1.5 ap spacers and am rubbing on the cab mounts. I have 16" Trd anthracite wheels with 285/75/16 tires and Icon shocks in the front set at 2.5. If I chop the cab mounts can I make these spacers work? Or what do I have to do to not rub on the cab mounts?

    The TRD FJ wheels already have 4.5" backspacing. If you remove the wheel spacers the rub will be significantly less. You have pushed the wheels out too far by adding spacers to a wheel that already has ideal specs for fitting 285s

    Do whatever he says. You will not regret taking his advice on anything to do with wheels and tires.

    Is there any way to make this work? cab mount chop or by raising the front abit higher? I wanted to push the wheels out farther because I liked the look of it. I couldnt even leave the driveway becaused it rubbed so much. This is even when I barely turned the steering wheel. I ended up removing the spacers because of this.

    Not without hacking up your fenders (the actual fender, not the liner) and getting a custom front bumper.

    You could pull off the fender flares if you want the wheels to look like they stick out further....

    It looks like too much work to make these fit.
