    Whats up TW, I have a question regarding some wheels and hopefully someone has some feedback they can give me. I currently have a pretty good offer on a set of Fuel Wheels/ Boost Model (pictured below). The person selling em to me just knows that they are 17x9 and he thinks the offset might be -8. They were taken off a Tacoma a week after purchase because they were rubbing the inner fenders due to no lift on the truck. I have 5100's set at 2.5" ready to be put on but im trying to get everything together to do it all at once. Can anyone tell me if the specs sound about right? I looked at the Fuel website and I see so many differences in the 17x9 regarding "Bores" and "ET"?
    I' plan to be running 285/70/17 Duratracs if I buy them.
    Any help is appreciated, Thanks in advance.

    I wanted those wheels also but they were out of stock. Lucky you to find a used set.

    Bore is the hub bore. Our trucks have a 106.8, I think. An idea offset for Tacos is -12, meaning they will stick out a bit away from the wheelwell. This is what many of the trucks you see here are running, myself included. As far as what the specs on your wheels are, it should be imprinted/embossed on the inside of the wheel.

    17x9 will work. I have that size. 17x8 is better if you can find them.

    There's a sticky on tire and rim sizing in the wheel section. Check it out for more help.
