    Hey guys,

    Finally got back into the Toyota world after trying out a Ford. GLAD TO BE BACK!!!!!!

    With that said, I closed the deal on a 2010 Tacoma Prerunner Double Cab. I went with this truck because i will be commuting about 40 miles one way to work. Pretty much all highway @ 70mph. I want good fuel economy, but with me still being a "big truck" guy, I really want to go for a new wheel setup, with new "beefier" tires eventually. I want to stay with 16" and go for a black wheel.

    My main question is what combo should I go with to maintain good economy? If I go with a 16x8 wheel, what would be the best tire to shoot for at around the same height as stock, but maybe wider? I have no plans of lifting the truck, and I sort of like the wide stance with wheels. Any info would really be appreciated, and I always love to see pics!!! (I'll get mine here soon, too!)

    Katskin leather interior, Satoshi grille, Bilstein 5100's @ 1.75, rear leaf TSB, magnaflow exhaust, 18x9 BBS RW's, 275/65/18 Nitto TG's, black headlights, black taillights, Hella Supertones, weathertechs, EFX tri-fold tonneau, n-Fab steps
    The largest tire you can fit on the stock wheels (which are around 5.5" backspacing) without a lift is a 265/75/16. Anything wider than 265 will rub.

    The 265/75's are one inch taller than stock.

    Most aftermarket wheels are 4.5" BS or so, and I've been told that 265/75/16's will still work without rubbing on that setup.

    I know that a 4" BS with those tires will rub on the fender well.
