    Hey guys,

    I've browsed through tons of pages of info here but can't find any definite answer.

    2009 4x4 double cab with toytech coilvers to 3", rear 2" aal, rear bilstein 5125's.

    I'm pretty set on Nitto Terra Grapplers, 285/70/17's to be exact

    I'm looking at Pro Comp alloys 7005's. The problem is do I run 17x9s at 4.75" BS -6mm offset or 17x8s at 4.5" BS 0mm offset?

    I was also interested in 18x9s but they have a BS of 5" with 0mm offset, I'd have to run a 285/65/18 which I believe I'd run into problems with?

    Thanks for any help

    I have been told the 4.75" bs and the 4.5" bs will work fine, but I am positive on the 4.5". Thats going to be a good set up.

    LOL u can easily have that answered by a tire/wheel shop guy

    However from my understanding a "negative" number offset like -6 will push the wheel out away from the trucks body more which is useful with larger tires. I am gonna be going with 17x9 with 5" backspace and 0mm offset. I believe the offset is measure from the outside edge of the wheel to the inside. So basically your 17x9's with 4.75"bs and -6mm offset (with -6mm being around a 1/4inch) you will be sitting the same as my 17x9's with 5"bs and 0mm offset.

    I would say the 4.75 has a better chance for not having the tire rub on the UCA.

    Chris4X4 may know for sure.

    Offset is measured from the center line of the wheel. If the wheel has 0mm offset the back of the wheel where it mounts to the hub is exactly in the center of the wheel. A negative offset will bring the mounting point towards the back of the wheel, making it stick out of the wheel well more. A positive offset will bring the mounting point more to the front of the wheel, making it tuck up under the wheel well more.

    thanks dudes, I called a local shop here about it and "both will work" didn't really do it for me, rather listen to guys here that actually have solid experience with this stuff.
