I have a 06 tacoma double cab.4x4 trd package. I am putting a set of Bilstein front 5100 preload strurts in the front with a 2 inch lift. So I can run 285 75 BFG all terains.I want to know if I need to put them on new rims with a deeper off set or can I use the stock wheels with out problems? Allso will the 285 work in the rear with out a lift? Thanks in advance.

I think your tires will rub the upper A arm with the factory wheels, you may need 1/4 inch wheel spacers. You should be able to run the 285 tires in the rear without lift.

The 285/75 BFGs will work only with aftermarket rims. The stock rim allows the tire to be mounted. With the stock rims you can not turn your truck to max capacity or travel over bumps. The tire sits to far into the UCAs. You will need to purchase aftermarket rims. A 16x8 wheel with at least a 4.625 backspace along with minor trimming in the front. The rears are fine without a lift. You can find aftermarket wheels for reasonable prices. Eagle alloys are what I have.
I had to do all my homework with these damn stock rims and a 285/75 tire.....
Hope this helps....

You could probally spacer and fit them on OEM rims while you save for aftermarket. No spacers arent the best thing, but all the guys running SAS on 79-85 axles run them, and I dont hear of many problems.
