I'm currently running 265x75x16 tires that I just bought few months ago on stock rim (02 Tacoma V6,TRD). I wonder can I still use the mentioned tire size with different rims that have less backspacing ? I want to bring the tire out a bit and not thinking of using wheel spacers. About 1" or so. Any suggestions on rims ? Help a brother out !

Thanks in advance. Phu :eek:

I just changed aftermarket wheels(16 x 8's), 4" bs to 3 5/8". With 2" of lift, my 265/75's now rub at the pinch weld when stuffed. No big deal but they rub now where they didn't before with the 4" bs wheels.

I'm running 3" cornfed lift. BTW, may I ask what type/brand of rims are you running ? P

Backspacing does make a big difference on our trucks where not much lift is involved and tires size is moved up. There are alot of rims to choose from but the classic II's do look good and are priced well. I would get aluminum rims if you could steel is heavier and will rust.
