    Here goes- ive got a 2005 double cab long bed 4wd . I have the stock 17 x 9 sport wheels that are ok. Im putting front billys on set at 1.75 and rear AAL. My question is should i switch to a 16" rim (16 x 8) with about a 4.5" backspace and run a 265/75? I was going to put on the black raceline renegades and the goodyear duratracs. ive seen this on many tacos and it looks really good. Or should i keep a 17 x 9 with a 4.5 backspace? pics and opinions would help
