    I have an 08 short bed double cab. I installed bilsteins set at the highest level and a 2" AAL in the rear. I am going to buy new wheels and tires. What backspacing should I look into getting to install larger tires?

    Any suggestions for a good wheel? Should I get a 16" or 17"? I am looking for all black or mostly black with some chrome. I am looking for more on the lower end of the cost spectrum.

    Also what size tire would I be able to fit?

    With 4.5" backspacing you can fit 285/75/16 or 285/70/17 with some trimming
