Will 265/65/R17 tires rub on TRD Pro wheels?

    Need help from the wheel and tire experts. Have a 2023 TRD Sport with 5’ bed and OEM mud flaps which I want to keep in place.

    Really like the ride of my OEM Firestone 265/65/R17 tires and want to keep them. Also like the look of the 17x7 TRD Pro wheels from BAM: PTR20-35110-BK.

    I understand moving the tires to the TRD Pro wheels will retain the same tire diameter and circumference. But, I think the factory OEM Sport wheels have a 30mm offset while the TRD Pro’s are 4mm offset. Am I thinking correctly that the 26mm difference in offset will pull the wheels inward toward the hub 1.024 inches?

    Questions are:

    1. Will this cause any tire rubbing (even at hard lock turns) on the inner suspension or flares/mud guards?
    2. Will this setup make the tires look too drawn in or funny?
    3. What about alignment and ride quality?

    if anyone has this exact setup, photos here would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers and Happy New Year!

    Going to the sema wheels moved the tire centerline outwards by 26mm. Towards the fender opening. This is actually what causes rub because of the new larger arc the wheel swing in on turns.

    That said, 265/65R17 is no problem on the sema wheels. I ran that combo for a while. When I had 265/70R17 tires on the same wheels, I would hit the factory flaps on turns at speed or on turns with bumps.

    I wanted to step up the tire size without rubbing so I traded the Sema wheels for Sport wheels. I now have 255/75R17 (32.1”) tires and no rubbing, with factory 30mm offset sport wheels.

    No it will fit fine, this is one of the most common upgrades people do.

    Just bolt them on and go.

    Issue you'll run into is transferring the TPMS sensors, they don't unbolt from 2023 models, so you'll likely need new tpms. I havent removed any yet, but they are one and done if I recall.
