    Hello I have recently purchase some 2018 4runner rims for my 2013 Tacoma access cab. I was wondering which tire set up would work best for my stock suspension.
    265/70/17 or a bigger 275/70/17?? I believe these new rims have a better offset? Is this true and if so would it compensate for a wider tire? IMG_4537.jpg

    The 265’s on stock height. You will want at least a 1” lift up front and a +14 offset or lower for the 275’s.

    I found some of the same wheels that Freddy is looking at here, and when i find them on hubcaphaven.com it says that these are 15mm offsets , and stocks are 30mm. if you lose 15mm in offset, does that mean you need look at less overall height if you don't have a lift in the front? thanks -

    Offset is the wheels position on the hub. A zero 0 offset means the hub is center to the wheel. A negative offset means it’s pushed out further and a positive means it’s closer to the vehicle.
    The lower the offset the more the wheel is going to stick out. Offset is measured in mm so +30 to +15 offset will move the wheel about 0.6” out. This will allow you to put a wider tire and have 0.591” more clearance from the UCA. If you tired to put 275’s on stock +30 offset wheels it would rub the UCA. You want the lower offset to move the tire out for clearance. 9E7F5F5E-8E2E-433F-81D6-65D4395973D7.jpeg

    That’s just the offset factor the tire height is where the lift has to come into play. If you have 265/65/17 stock tires you can put 265/70/17 tires on without issues. If you go to 275/70/17 that changes the height and the width of the tire enough to where it will start to rub on a stock Tacoma. You would want a 1” lift and +14 offset to -6 for best fit +15 is close enough it would work. You want to watch for wheel width 17x8.5” is the widest I would go and that would be with 285’s. 275’s run 7.5-8” wide and 265 7-7.5” wide for best bead strength.
    17x8” +15 offset with a 1” lift you can fit 275/70/17

    Here is a photo of the wheels and tires on my truck. Went with the 265/70/17 fits perfect with no lift
