    Yeah I forgot to say that. I am running light racing UCAs. The bolts on the outside lip started fading on mine after awhile.

    My 06 PreRunner has stock 265/65/17s (no lift) and I want to buy 18" wheels. I don't want to make an offset mistake, but I'm interested in some 18's with a zero offset. Just like to know if I'd have any problems since these are an online purchase. To avoid any rub issues I'd go with 275/60/18 tires. Do you see any issues? All help is appreciated. Let me know, thanks (I'm new to this).

    I'm having a hard time figuring out what will fit on my 2013 taco TRD Sport. I'm really interested in "164-7983B Matte Black 17.0 9.0 6X139.7 108.00 -12 A89-8126 2200 0.00 Acorn" wheels on http://www.ultrawheel.com/specs.cfm?id=28&name=164. Would I need spacers or anything? Thank you for your time.

    Question for you guys.

    Level 8 ZX rims
    17X9 6-139.7 -12 or 17X9 6-139.7 0 offset

    Which one would be closer to the rim below as far as sticking out?


    17X8.5 6-139.7 -6 offset (Guardian rims made by same company). I like how it sticks out enough. I got to see many pics as reference.

    Anybody know what the answer is? I bought the -12 offset for stock suspension on 2012 DCSB Prerunner. Going to run 265/65/17 for now.

    After about 20 pages, I figured out how the backspacing works. But I need help on selecting which is best for me.

    I have decided I want to get these Ultra Phantom wheels. I have an 08 DC Sport with stock suspension. The wheels come in 3 offset options.

    17x8 +1 offset = 4.5 bs
    17x8 +10 offset = 5 bs
    17x8 +25 offset = 5.5 bs

    I may get a leveling or lift in the future, but for now I am going to stay stock. I don't wan't to do any trimming. I don't mind if the wheels stick out further (in fact I would prefer it). I am currently running the stock tire size (265/65/17 i think), but would like to go to 265/70/17. Which offset would let me go to this tire size, not trim, and have the wheels stick out further than stock?
