wheel/tire fitment

real quick and simple question:

will these wheels

http://www.americanracing.com/wheels...nish&section=S

in 16x8, 6 on 5.5, with 4.5" backspacing

will they fit onto a 1992 toyota truck 4x4?
will running 285/75/R16 BFG AT's on these cause any rubbing issues on my truck (1.5" bj spacer lift in front, 3" spring lift in rear)?

that's good to know

i'm wondering if there would be any differences that would make these wheels not fit properly on a 92 pickup/2nd gen. the backspacing seems so much that i feel i might run into problems with the bj spacer lift

thats a possibility... 4.5" of bs is what the stock wheels are.... i havent heard that they rub with bj spacers, but issues with rubbing might happen still....

on the american racing website it lists the victor teflons as compatable on both 2nd and 3rd gen 4runners, but does not list them as compatable for 86-95 pickups or 95-tacomas

i'm not sure what to make of this

anyone have some info that could help me out?

are there any drawbacks of going with a 10" wide rim as opposed to an 8" wide rim? im getting 15x10 or 15x8 MT classic II's w/ 3 5/8 backspacing

im putting a 1.5" bj spacer lift up front and about 3" of lift in the rear, and i would be running 32x11.50's (later stepping up to 33x12.50s). would there be ANY problems with the 10"?

i like the look and feel of the 10" rims, so if there are no reasons to justify an 8" wide wheel over a 10", ill get the 10"

With a 10" wide rim you will increase the likelyhood of tire rubbing, since it'll push the outer edge of the tire out 2" wider than a similar 8" rim. Not an insurmountable problem but something to be aware of. Wider wheel/tire sweeps a wider arc up front while steering and as the suspension cycles. If that arc intersects the body sheet metal, you get rubbing.
