    I found some beadlock wheels for a really good price. They are pro comps 17x9 2.5 back spacing. Will they fit or what do i need to do to make them fit? I know these threads are annoying but I can't find this info anywhere. BTW I have some spydertrax 1.25''.

    Are you 1st Gen or 2nd Gen? 5 or 6 lug? How far do you want the wheels to stick out? Less BS = farther out. What size tires do you plan on putting on them?
    I measured them when I did the swap out.
    1st Gen TRDs 4.5" BS
    Stock Steelies 5" BS
    2nd Gen TRDs 5.25" BS (according to the wheel specs thread)
    Mine with 245/75/16 Dungflops on stock steelies.

    And with 255/85/16 BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM2 on 1st Gen TRDs

    I don't have any good comparison pics (I'll take some the next time I swap my commuters for my off roaders). The easiest way to see it is on the mud flaps. The Dungflops are centered and the KM2s are past the outer edge.

    !7" should have no problem clearing the calipers (I've only heard of problems with some AM 16"s). But the inside of the wheel will be farther out (3" if you have TRD wheels or 2 1/2" if you have steelies) than it is now. And the outside will be farther out (5" if you have TRD wheels or 4 1/2" if you have steelies) than it is now. It sounds like your problem will be rubbing the fender wells unless you have a 6" lift (and then it might still be a problem)

    drew this up real quick. right now on stock trd sport wheels with 1.25 spacers the wheels are almost an inch out of the well and looks perfect. where will these aftermarket wheels sit?

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but better now than after you bought them.

    Yeah you wouldn't even be able to turn :laugh:

    Even 4.0 BS is too little for a 2nd gen. It makes you cut a lot more than 4.5.
