Understanding Tyre Sizes

I am trying to figure out three things: what does the second number mean, how do I determine which tyres would go with these wheels, and how do spacers figure in to this whole matter? Thanks

Here's a link that explains tire sizes. Click the link at the top to watch a video : Tire Sizes (and other sidewall information) - Discount Tire Direct

The right tire size will be determined by your vehicle and the size wheel you choose as well as the wheel's specs.

With a proper fitting wheel, you won't need wheel spacers.

Thanks for the reply. I saw in my friend's build that he has BMF 20x9 wheels with 1.75in spacers for the offset. I do not know if this configuration would be appropriate for mine, nor how to determine this for myself.

What year is your Tundra and is it lifted or leveled?

With a 12" lift you won't need any wheel spacers.

Go with the lowest offset option and you can easily run 37" + tires. You may even be able to get 40" tires under there.
