    Hello all, I am new member here but have been lurking the site for a little while.

    I sold my 2000 Tundra to make the big leap forward, I brought a 2001 Tundra :homer: lol. The new to me Tundra has a 5" Tuff country lift and 3" body lift, the wheels are 20x10 (chrome) 37/13.50 and there shot. I am thinking of going down to 18's to shed some weight but I can't seem to figure out correct offset. I want to run either 305/65/18 or 325/65/18, Tuff country paperwork says I need a backspace of 4.5" or less. So I am thinking 18" -12 offset and 4.5 backspace, is this going to work with above mentioned tires.

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks for the welcome.

    I have looked at a lot of pictures and scrolled through multiple threads but can't seem to find an answer.
