    I'm new to this forum and I have a few questions to some of you who have had your Tundra's a while and know about buying wheels/tires. I just bought a 2007 Tundra Limited 4 x 4 Double Cab and I've looked over all the wheel diagrams, etc. and I'm just confused on what wheel can I put on my Tundra. I have 275/55/R20 tires with the original rims and I guess what I'm asking is how do you know what size, width, offset, etc. can go on my Tundra? Can I go 9 inch or 10 inch width instead of 8? Thanks in advanced.

    My tires are pretty wide, I'll take a pic or you can check out my pics.

    Take your time, picking out new wheels/rims for your Tundra is like pairing a fine wine with a delicious meal.

    Thanks... I guess what I'm really trying to ask is on my 2007 Tundra what is the widest I can go and what parameters do I need to stay in with offset, backspacing, etc. I don't want to purchase some wheels online and they rub or don't fit. I know what settings I have now, but I'm not sure what I can get away with. I do want to stay 20 inch though.

    Nor7...appreciate the help. At 12 inches, do your front tires rub at all during tight turns?

    CARID.COM is unbelievable!!! They just sent me a checklist to follow on how to return the rims that they had shipped to me! Placing them back into the shipping boxes they sent to me is not protocol...Lesson Learned!!!

    CARID.COM sent me packing instructions AND had UPS send me a kit with packing material In it. I guess they planning on accepting my return.
