    so I think im finally ready to get new rims and tires.
    couple questions....
    im probly going to go with these wheels from wheelers.
    black, 16" 4.5 backspacing
    http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/tacomawheels.htm

    now on to tires, I have icons all the way around and deaver 10 leaf.
    My total lift is about 2" and I really dont want to crank up the front, then have to deal with raising the rear or saggin.Maybe in the future I will get lift spindles and lift shackles but thats more $ and dammit I want new tires.:D
    so, sizes. you guys with 285/75/16 and similar offset rims, did you have to trim (fender/cab mount)because the tire was too tall or too wide?
    was thinking maybe 275/70/16 would be better cuz I dont want to deal with it rubbing. anyways, any suggstions would help.
    thanx

    285 will rub 33 inch tire

    265/75/16 I heard will not rub 32 inch tire

    Good luck

    I'll likely get 265/75/16 when I get new tires
