    I've got the 3" ToyTec lift on my '01 with 285/75-16 BFG AT's. The tires rubbed the frame a little on the stock wheels, but with my new wheels it clears everything just fine. I got the American Racing Tactic's in black (16x8) from http://www.wheelsforless.com Check out the website, they've got some of the best deals I've found. I paid $525 for 4 wheels, centercaps, lug nuts, free shipping and no tax. The wheels have 4.5" backspacing compared to the stock 5.5" It set the wheels out another inch from the hubs and fixed the rubbing problem.

    I just measured one of my old stock rims and it is indeed 4.5" backspace. I didn't measure my new rims before I put them on, but they are said to be 4.5" backspacing. Why do they stick out further than the stocks? It fixed my frame rubbing issue as well. I know the stocks are 16x7 and the new rims are 16x8, but that's only a 1/2" difference on each side. The new rims sit out quite a bit further from the stocks, and no longer rub the frame and also have more clearance from the upper A-arms. What gives?
    Here's a couple pics from before and after the new rims, and you can see that they actually sit out farther from the axles, even though it's supposed to be the same 4.5" backspacing.
