I just installed 1.25" wheel adapers with those same TRD wheels. No more rubbing issues and a much better stance. see attachments.Greetings:
I did some searching and found this thread. I did not want to make an entirely new thread since this one has the base issue I have questions about. There is a local gentleman selling a set of 2005 17 inch Toyota Tacoma TRD rims for a fairly cheap price ($165). Attached you will find a picture of these rims. Does anyone know the backspacing of these rims? If the backspacing is 5" and my Tundra needs 4.5", will spacers, such as these work correctly? If not, can someone point me in the right direction?
Just my opinion, but I think its the backspacing on the wheels. When those listing say it should fit Tundras, tacomas or 4runners, I think the're merely saying the bolt pattern is the same (6 on 5.5). My bad, but I didn't measure the backspacing on these wheels. The rubbing issues I had were from the tires rubbing the frame at full lock. Plus the clearance with the UCA was super close. After I installed the adapters, no more rubbing and much more clearance with the UCA. The adapters cost me $340.00 but it was still cheaper than buying new wheels. By the way, I'm running 265/70/17 Terra Grapplers.I've been shopping around for those same wheels, and every listing has stated that they should fit Tundra, Tacoma or 4-runners for the most part. I was not planning on getting spacers (nor do I want to)--so is the issue more the tire size I put on the wheels, or is it a problem with the actual fitment of the wheel?
I have a 2002 with TRD offroad, no lifts or changes to suspension from TRD set.
