    Figured it's time to start this thread, more so that I can keep track of what I've done and when than anything else.

    2006 Double Cab TRD was purchased in March 2019 with 102,000 miles for $13,900 from an older gentleman in the greater Seattle area. Truck was pretty much completely stock, other than a set of Westin Nerf bars and a set of pretty decent Toyo Open County A/T.

    After the 6112 / 5160 / TRD Off-Road wheels / 255/80/17. Not sure if it needs to come up in the back or not. We'll see how it all settles out. The big negative so far is that the wheel/tire combo rubs against the frame at full lock...

    @trailbikerider I took the truck out for a first drive today, and the 255/80/17 were rubbing on the frame pretty hard at full lock, both in drive and reverse...did you have a similar problem when you were running the 4Runner wheels?

    Do you think spacers would solve that issue? On my 3rd gen 4runner I had the techs set the castor forward and that had good effect on my rubbing. The wheel was a little stiffer but it tracked great on the highway. Food for thought....

    I ran 1.25" spacers when I had the T4R wheels for the same reason - the factory wheels have a fairly high offset.

    Ok awesome, I ordered some Spidertrax 1.25", as it seemed like those would be about the correct amount. Thanks for the confirmation!
