    i have a 2008 prerunner and just replaced the steelies with the 17inch trd sport wheels, i put on 265-70-17 nitto terra grapplers. The top control arms are about a finger width (maybe a little bit more) away from the sidewall of the tire. do i need spacers?

    I had to put spacers on mine just to get that "Finger Width". Then again I went with 285/75/16
