It’s got a rough country 4 inch lift. Anyways....it’s got 2.25 inch spacers on it because the wheel won’t fit. I’m looking at buying the trd pro wheels but what is the right offspace and backspace for them to sit as flush as possible with the fenders and not stick out to much? Below are pictures of the wheels I’m wanting buy and how close in I want them to fit. Thanks guys.

    The TRD Pro wheels will fit without spacers, and I don't think they are available in more than the stock BS/ offset. I could be wrong though...it happened once before.

    These are off eBay so they aren’t genuine trd wheels I don’t think. What would be a good offset for them to be almost flush or maybe a little bit past the fenders?

    Here is 16x8 with 0 offset and 265/75 tires. They sit just about at the outside of the fender flares. They will throw water/mud onto the sides of the truck, so they probably stick out a little bit. An offset of -10 would probably look ok too, they would stick out a little more. I’m not a fan of tires sticking out when it’s not necessary.

    Would a 4 or 5 offset suck them in a little bit more than your 0 offset?

    0 offset and preferably 4.0 backspace but most rims for our trucks come 4.75 which tends to bring the rims closer inward. Not a great idea since it could rub against the UCA or calipers.

    Yup. I added to my post, but positive offset will set them in more, negative offset will push them out.

    They have the backspace listed in the offset line but if it has 4" backspacing yes it will work. I would email them to make sure.

    So let’s get this right...if I were to order a wheel of any kind...for my taste...(the tires being flush with the fenders. The offset would need to be 0 to 5. And the backspacing would need what?

    It is going to make a difference if the wheel width is 7” or 8”.
