    Hi there.
    I have a 2012 4Runner Limited which currently has 20" wheels and tire size of 245/60R20. I live in Colorado, and am often driving in snow/ice during the winter. I would like to put a good set of All-Terrain tires on my 4runner which would be good for both highway/summer and winter/snow conditions. The tires I would like to use are BF Goodrich ALL-TERRAIN T/A KO2 Tire Size: 265/70R17.

    The problem with the 20" wheels is that there are not really any good all-terrain tires out there for 20" wheels, so I'm considering changing my wheels to 17", and need some advice on this....specifically:

    * what are the specs of the 17" wheels that I should be purchasing to be able to install on them BF Goodrich ALL-TERRAIN T/A KO2 Tire Size: 265/70R17?

    * what should the wheel offset be on the 17" rim (From online research that i've done, my current OEM 20" wheels have either a 12mm offset or a 15mm offset)

    * do i need to worry about other details such as wheel backspace?

    * If i purchase the 17" wheels, will there be any issues with installing BF Goodrich ALL-TERRAIN T/A KO2 Tire Size: 265/70R17?

    * any other advice/suggestions appreciated.

    Thx!

    I ran scs wheels on my Tacoma and they are top notch. Equally as good for Toyota is FN Wheel. Do a google search, there is more styles available than what is on the website.

    Things with stuff, but nothing much
    You don't sound like a wheel connoisseur, but more like a guy who wants / needs function. To that end, I would not buy any aftermarket wheels. Just get a set of take off Toyota 17" wheels from craigslist or similar. Any 17" Toyota 6 lug wheel will work and will maintain correct backspacing and allow you to use your lug nuts and TPMS. You should be able to snag a set for sub-$200, easily.

    As an example, I got a set of take off TRD-OR wheels last year for $50.

    As far as tires sizing and fitting them on a 17" wheel, you will have no issues putting the stock size BFGs on a stock size wheel.
