    So I bought these wheels from 4Wheel Online through Amazon. Please see link below.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004IPPA5I/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    This morning I went to have them mounted and the tire professional said that they didn't fit. I called 4Wheels Online and they said it could be an offset issue. I looked up the specs again and everything checked out. I have a 2007 Tundra. They should fit perfectly right? I'm completely flabbergasted that they didn't fit on the hub. I"m planning to return the wheels and getting different ones but I need a second, third, and fourth opinion. Any advice?

    I almost bought these wheels but I was never able to confirm fitment. By the specs they should fit. Is it the hub bore that is causing the problem? Can the tire shop tell you why they don't fit?

    The center bore lined up just fine. I did more digging on it and it looks like it is an offset issue. I need to find wheels with the correct offset.

    Checking the specs it looks like they should fit. Major f-up on the part of the manufacturer if they don't 'cause only Tundra, sequoia, LC and their lexus cousins use 5x150

    These wheels are supposed to have a 30mm offset. Seems like they should fit without issue. It would be nice to confirm the offset.

    An 18x9 +30 should fit fine. Have you verified yourself exactly what about them isn’t fitting? What is hitting?

    Did you ever get this straightened out? Interested to find out what became of this. Did the wheels fit?
    I still like these wheels, like to know if they fit.

    I'm curious as well as to the actual backspacing/offset was on these... not the advertised but measure it and see

    Yeah, with these specs how could they not fit our trucks. Vision Raptor 9.5" wide wheels with 6.25" backspacing fit so these should also.

    I'm thinking they must have sent the wrong wheels or they were labeled improperly

    Sometimes even with the correct offset certain wheels will contact the calipers.

    That's the only thing I could see. The way the spokes point toward the center of the wheel on the outer rim. Sure doesn't look that bad though.

    Did you order these wheels?
    Let us know because I would like to pull the trigger on these wheels.

    I think these would look really good without the center caps installed.

    I think the Method's have been proven to fit, you should be fine even with the 17's.

    Not nearly enough room here!
    I bought Land Cruiser wheels for my Tundra and had to buy 1/4" spacers, so they'd clear the calipers. I would've returned them but they were exactly the wheels I was after and my Mechanic said I'll see no issues with spacers that small.

    Yeah, exactly.
    I've seen it a few times over the years (not necessarily on Tundras).

    I ended up sending them back but now I realized that I could've bought 1/2 inch spacers or 1 inch spacers and would've been fine. I'm glad I learned what to do but I found some TRD style wheels that I like a little more so I'm saving up for them. So in summary those wheels do fit but they would need spacers on a 2nd generation. I might just by some just to be safe so this won't happen again.

    Where were the wheels making contact exactly? Were the spokes hitting the calipers or were the the tires hitting the skid plate when wheels were turned?
    Just curious as the specs for those wheels should work with our trucks.
    Glad you found something you like.
    What TRD wheels are you looking at?
