    Hi, I have a 2010 tacoma trd sport and want to buy a 17 inch wheel when my tires wear out.

    reason Im doing it is because the rim/wheel i want only comes in a 16 inch dimension.

    So my question is what will it do to my trucks parts, gas mileage, suspension,warranty etc.

    thanks

    It MIGHT have an affect on MPG only because of weight differences. The tire size is the factor to be concerned with, and that is only if you make a big change like from a 30" to a 33" tire.

    Only the weight. The tire size is what is effected by your size. Like the post above, use the tire tool calculator and it will show you what size your coming from and going to.
