    I bought my truck with mb 72 rims, I don't like the chrome on the lip and cap, they don't stick out so I'm stuck with either paint them black with plasti dip and then get wheel spacers, or sell them and get the pro comp 7032 , but they only come with a 4.5" backpacking and 0 offset so they won't stick out right? Need some imput

    If you have the $$, buy the new ones and try to sell the old ones. Otherwise, paint them or save up to buy the Pro Comps.

    A little tip for 4 wheel parts - be careful with them. Their prices are good, but their customer service can be sketchy. I had to call 4 or 5 times to get my wheels returned to them and each rep gave me different info.

    The only time I got good reliable info is when I called the actual 4 wheel parts stores in Cleveland and Jacksonville. They care because it's their shop - the customer service reps don't know a lug nut from a lock nut.

    There are a few folks on TW running those rims. You may want to check them out and see what theirs look like.

    I am pretty sure that they wont stick out any further than what you already have. The questions is though, how far do you want them sticking out? Know that sticking too far out will cause rubbing issues when wheelin

    They will stick out.

    Use this equation to compute how far your tires stick out... (CONVERT TO INCHES FIRST! (25.4 mm = 1 inch).

    (Offset x -1) + (Tire Width / 2) = Distance from edge of tire to mounting face on hub.

    Stock TRD Sport Alloys are 30mm offset, so with 265 width tires...
    [(30mm x -1) + (265/2)]/25.4 = 4.0" from edge of tire to mounting face on hub.

    Your wheels with 0 offset will provide...
    [(0mm x -1) + (265/2)]/25.4 = 5.22" from edge of tire to mounting surface on hub.

    So your wheels will make the tires stick out about 1.25" farther than the stock TRD Sport Alloys. If you use tires larger than 265 width, it'll stick out farther.

    This is what it will look like with 265 width tires on the left, the right is stock rims with 245 tires.

    These wheels are -6 offset and 4.75 bs and look really nice on the truck. They definitely do have a wider stance...you wont be disappointed.
