Does anyone know if the TRD Pro 17inch wheels will fit and does it need hubcentric rings or clear the brakes? I feel the stock 18in wheels are toooooo heavy at 32lbs each and affecting the ride quality. In a couple of year, if I do keep the vehicle, I would like to install that to save about 6lbs per wheel. Will probably be offset by slightly higher sidewall tires so it wont look dumb.

I plan to use the Spidertrax which are hubcentric. I take it you mean these wheels?? Great choice.

Cool. I suppose I just need higher sidewall tires to compensate for the small diameter wheel? Ideally I would love to stick to the F Sport rims, but they are only like 3lbs lighter. Are there lighter wheels than the TRD pro ones and is it TRD pro or SEMA?

What size are the TRD Pro wheels and what spacer size for that? Those look good I like it. Wonder what they cost compared to FN 17's or the like?

This may sound stupid but what are reps? How can I find those exact wheels I love that set up.

I plan to do 17x7 or 17x8 with a 2" lift but no BMC involved, on 7" wide wheels maybe run 255/70/17, not sure about what's possible on an 8" wheel?

I know the 460 hub is 106mm, no idea how to accommodate the offset and backspacing stuff, for the TRD wheels I think I'd need the 1.25 SpiderTrax spacers and not sure what else.

why the spacers? The trd wheels are more aggressive than the stock wheels. Unless you’re going for the flush look. Even then the spidertrax 1.25 will bring you way out of the body lines.

Flush look would be fine or out a little bit even maybe, then run either 275 or 285/70/17 but if they are going to rub then it's gonna be 275 or less.

Short for replica wheels. Different companies make OEM styles in different sizes. Check eBay...
