I had thought that because of the back spacing, spacers were needed.... If not that's good news to those who are thinking about going with Sequoia/GX wheels and stock size tires

I have no spacers and have no clearance issues. I am running the stock wheels/tires off a 2005 tacoma sport. Before the 2005 tacoma sport 17's, I ran 2005 4runner 16s and had no problems clearing them either.

this is just sounding better and better. can't wait to mount them tommorrow.The only thing that sucks big is that I just bought some duelers AT 265/75/16 for my stock 3 spoke rims about 4 months ago. These gx470 have stock tires. If everything goes well, would anyone be interested in my duelers?

i replied to your pm. the tires were really close to the a-arm with no spacer. i didnt bolt it up though, just hung it on there. the wheels were really set in though, i run spacers on the back too as it was goofy with the tires soo far in. the tires are barely inside the wide limited flairs.

This thread is from some time ago, but I'm hoping there is more info out there now and possibly some more experience with this. I'm running stock 16" on my 96' 4Runner and the tread is down to nothing. I purchased in this condition a month ago. Intended on just finding a set of A/T's in 16" and being done. Very quickly I decided to do the Tundra 231mm upgrade. That happens in January. Last night I found a set of 2006 stock 17" Tundra wheels with tires around 75% for $400. The height should be identical to my current 16" with 265/75/16 as they are 265/70/17. So now I just wonder about depth. I want to avoid wheel spacers at all cost and I believe the 17" will be nice looking when it's time for a lift. So, any more folks running OEM Tundra/Sequoia 17" w/out spacers on a 3rd gen 4Runner? Thanks for any help. Btw, the vehicles in the pics above look outstanding.

I ran these with 275/70R17 tires with no spacers and they were fine. I did later add spacers to get the tires out even with my fender flares, but that was purely for cosmetic reasons.

Thanks for the feedback PB. That's exactly what I was hoping to hear. Love that look on your rig. If I had the flared wells I would do the same. I like the wheel to fill out the space on the Runner and I actually like the look when they protrude on the Smaller Toyota pickups. I just removed my window vent shields to streamline the look and I was definitely hoping to not now have wheels sticking out the sides. Glad to see that picture of yours as I have the identical color so now I have the image. Thanks again. Best wishes.

No problem. I really like the OEM 5-spokes but like the split-spokes a touch more. Graphite-colored wheels look really good on white vehicles.
