    Im new to the forum and I am beefing up my Taco some but I am not sure about the wheels I am looking at.

    I have a 2010 DC and I got a 3 inch lift on it, and I am wanting to put 285/75/16's and new wheels on it and the wheel I am looking at has a 4.5 backspace will It fit or do I need to get a different backspace on it to keep it from rubbing to where I have to do more than cut the fender wells?

    Welcome to TW! That BS will work, but you will still need to trim a little bit with that size tire.

    See build thread.
    4.5 sticks out a little bit giving it a more of an aggressive stance.

    4.5 BS with a 0 offset should work... I just ordered some AR Tactic 16x8's for $540 OTD!

    Haha aint this a good thread. Ive always wondered if its better to stick with positive offset or go with 0 or negative offset.

    A -12mm 4.5 bs wheel is usually 9 inches wide. where as a 0mm 4.5bs wheel is 8" wide. the -12mm will stick out farther than the 0mm. Both will work for what your wanting. but the 0mm may require a little less trimming.
