    Im a new Tacoma owner and just put a 3" lift in. I wanted to put 33" tires in with my stocks wheels but was told they rubbed and wouldnt fit. They told me I needed to get new wheels to offset the tires. I really am new to all of this. I would like 33" BFG tires and a mostly black wheel. any suggestions?

    4.5" backspacing is best for reducing rubbing on these trucks.

    What lift did you get? You may still rub with a 33" tire even with the best backspacing.

    I thought i had asked a fairly specific question hard2kill...I was looking for suggestions. especk thank you for taking a genuine interest, what does backspacing mean and how do I go about finding wheels to get it?? I put in a rough country lift. Sorry for my ignorance, I'm just learning about my truck.

    ya that website is good. u can also google "wheel backspacing" and u may get a picture/diagram that may help more.

    i like to go to 4wheelparts.com to look at wheels. they have a good selection and u can narrow it down by size. u need at least a 16" diameter aluminum wheel. 8-9" wide is most popular. the bolt pattern is 5 on 5.5. The description of each wheel will include the backspacing. i never look at the offset info because that is just another way to look at backspacing depending on the width of the wheel.

    It's funny because people were saying not to get them because they look too busy. I ALMOST went with the Revolvers, the all black ones. But with the black fenders and black tires I needed some kind of break in color. The night before last I caught some guy trying to steal them while it was parked in my driveway. I've only had them for a week or so.
