toytec 3 inch lift, tires

i have a 03 tacoma prerunner extra cam and i am thinking of putting the teoytec 3in spacers up front and aal in the back. my question is should i keep the stock tire size? 265s? would it look good or should i go up? pics and opinions would help.

I don't have any pics but an opinion I do have. If money is a concern keep the stock tires for now. Decide what you like then most likely install some 33s.

Now about that lift. I as most here will reccomend the suspension lift instead there are members here that are pulling their spacers in place for the suspension lift of their chosing. However if it is just for looks and not performance the spacers are cheaper. However they are also stiffer. Hope this helps.

i emailed toytec yesterday and the email i got back was "they are stock 265s?"

so im not entirely convinced they are.

if i just get the 2.5 spacers will that level it out or would the 3" spacers do it. thinking i might want the front just a tad higher then rear. with this set up rear stock. and stock size tires. most likely bf at ko's (265)

dude if u wanna just level it get the billstein 5100s....the ride is alot better than the spacers IMO. i have 5100s in the front at 2.5 and a 2" AAL in the rear....its pretty level, the back sits a smidge higher but i like it.....you could get the smaller AAL and have it sit lower in the rear tho.... and i ordered 285s abt 2 weeks ago to stuff under it if they ever show up
