    They will all fit just fine.

    17x7.5 +30 is the exact same as the stock TRD Sport wheels

    17x8 +15 would stick out just shy of 1” further than stock

    17x9 +0 would stick out an additional 2” compared to stock

    The wider wheels with the more aggressive offset could cause rubbing. I’d vote for the middle option, especially if staying with a 265 tire.

    Will a more wide wheel make the tire look fatter?

    Most manufacturers do not recommend 265 tires on 9 inch wide wheels. There are some but most are P rated tires. I have yet to find a LT tire that it is recommended.

    Not really. The tread width won’t change and a 265 series tire is typically about 10.4” wide so even on the 9” wide wheel, it shouldn’t look “stretched”

    But yeah, I wouldn’t put a 265 on a 9” wide wheel. Just like I wouldn’t put a 285 on a 7” wide wheel...

    Gosh the style of those wheels are great. Would look much more upscale, if they were available in alum. color. Just my opinion.

    There is a brushed aluminum version somewhere on ebay. I remember seeing them a while back.

    Best choice out of the 3 listed. The other 2 are two wide for your tire size/width. Only issue I have with any of these 3 is that you are limited in going with a bigger wider tire if you decide later to upgrade. They will be either the wrong width or backspacing for a bigger tire such as 33's although you probably wouldn't have too much problem selling your new setup. I do dig the wheels. Looks like a knock off of the TRD wheels.

    A 17x7 with a +30 offset will sit way too far tucked in IMO. One of the nice things about buying an aftermarket wheel is going with a slightly more aggressive offset than stock. Take a look at the FN wheels, they do replica 4Runner Pro wheel like you just posted. They offer in a 0 offset which is aggressive, but not too aggressive. Shouldn’t have any rubbing issues either on stock suspension w/ that tire size.

    Call Dustin at FN wheels he will set you up with a nice set of TRD pro wheels. Good price and excellent service. I have the TRD pro wheels with 265/70/17. No problems and that is as big you can go with no issues on a 2.5 inch lift. ThatIMG_1834.jpg s why I got the 265/70/17 tires. That is when it only had a 2.5 inch lift.

    The FN wheels are 8” wide instead of the factory 7.5”. With a 2.5” lift you won’t want to go to a 9” rim because you won’t have much clearance for a bigger tire. 8” is as big as you should go unless you are planning on going higher in the future.

    Agree with the wheels.
    I have FN FX Pro's also. Dustin is super easy to work with, ships quickly, and has reasonable prices.

    OP sounds like he really shouldn't get the 9in wheels, so FN's are perfect for him.
