    Ok so just ordered my 3 inch lift from toytec and now im going to get new rims and tires. I already have the rims I want picked out but im confused as to what back spacing I should get. I want to go with 285/75/r16 tires and the rims I am going to get come in 4.0 and 4.5 backspacing. The website says that if I go with the 4.0 backspacing that it will give me more clearance with the UCA's but it will also make my tires stick out further. I realize I will have to trim inside the wheel wells to make the 285's fit without rubbing. Will I be ok with this setup or is there something I am forgetting.

    You can fit the 285/75/16's with the 4.5" backspacing with a little trimming. Most folks on here run the 4.5" BS rather than the 4.0".

    Why do they run the 4.5 instead of the 4.0?
