    I have a '08 double cab taco in the process of ordering a rev tec leveling kit.
    I would like to put a set of 285/70/17 but not sure if my factory rim's will alow enough width to clear top A-arm. Just wondering if i can get away will wheel spacer's for the time being as my budget wont let me afford a aftermarket set of rim's with a bigger offset. So will a set of wheel spacers give me the width im looking for and if so what size should i get
    Thanks Again

    the 70's should clear width wise, without a lift your not gonna clear with travel. if your worried get wheels spacers, but definatly only get hub centric wheel spacers, all the other spacers or not very safe, get loose very easy, and just not a good idea

    I bought Ichiba. Google this.

    They were a little more espensive, but were aluminum and magnesium alloy for lower weight and strength. Have a cool gold cast to them. Look very well made.
