Questions about wheels and tires

ok guys,, yall helped me around xmas with my son's lift for his 07 Tacomo TRD off road, crew cab. We finally found time to get it on over the weekend. It went pretty smooth. We ended up with about 3.5" in the front and about 2.75 " in the rear. Now its time for tires. He was looking at a 305/70-16. So my question is what size tire is that? or will that lift take bigger? Also he wants the wheel to be kinda wide and stick out pass the fenders some. any ideas on a width of wheel and maybe what back space he needs? thanks a lot guys. Herb

That tire is 33" x 12.2". It is pretty wide compared to most tires guys are running on 3" lifts. The wheel should be 4.5"-4" backspacing to help prevent rubbing. Even with that, some rubbing may occur depending on the lift. The cab mounts may need to be cut away and some fender trimming may need to be done in certain areas. Most guys run 285/75/16 which is almost an inch narrower so they dont have to worry about rubbing issues and they dont stick out as far.

i would stick with 285/75 as Erik said. you'll need to do a fair amount of trimming as it is

if you wanna get the 305s, get em. Yesterday I ordered 305/70/16 bfg km2 for my truck for when I install the OME lift in a couple weeks. I ordered an aftermarket offroad bumper because the front fender is where the majority of the rubbing would occur. I'm also ready to chop my cab mounts. You may want to do the same.

Keep in mind.. 285's will drop your gas mileage quite a bit..

I know that is something that gets overlooked quite often.
