Hey guys, I'm new to this forum, so if this post is misplaced or something don't flame me too hard. I'm in the process of looking for some new wheels for my 2000 tundra, and definitely want a more aggressive/wider looking baja, offroadish look. Naturally, I want a pretty negative offset. I'm looking at some procomp wheels, but can't decide between the 15x8's or the 15x10's. They both have 3.62 inch backspacing, and that translates into about a -22 offset for the 15x8's and a -44 offset for the 15x10's. I'd definitely go with the wider ones if I could, but I'm not sure if they'll damage bearings or something. What do you guys suggest? Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Oh, btw the truck is getting a 3 inch truxx lift before these new rims and tires go on, just in case that sways any decisions.

Don't worry, were not like TTORA; were nice here!

Nobody here (I don't think) has commented too negatively about a heavily offset wheel, plenty of peole run wheel spacers... It's about personal preference, I don't too much care for the look of a wheel that sticks out a lot, and thinking to basic physics, the further out it is the more stress on hubs and such it will create. 4" backspacing seems to be a good number. Gives plenty of clearance from your UCA to run however big a tire you want, while still maintaining the tires under the wheel well. Whatever you do, post pics.

I would reconsider your TRUXX lift. Spacers, especially 3" spacers, are not good for many reasons and will be more of a concern than any wheel you put on. Do a search for Bilstein 5100. Much better quality for only a bit more money. You get what you pay for!

WELCOME!
