Available tire size with Bilstein 5100

Hey guys i'm new to Tacoma world and i have been looking around for leveling kits. How much lift do you actually get with the Bilstein 5100's and are they a good way to level? And what is the largest tire size can you go with them? Lastly what are the best all terrain tires for the tacoma, i like the Bridgestone dueler Revo 2's and the handcook duratracts. If you have pictures plz post!

Thanks!

5100's can give you up to 2.5" up front, nothing in the rear. You can get either 285/75r16 or 285/70r17 with the full 2.5". The Hankook dynapro ATM RF10 are a popular choice as well as goodyear duratracs.

If your using stock wheels it will probably rub on the UCA's without wheel spacers.

If I do the 5100s and the rear tsb with a set of spidertrax spacers would the 285/70-17s fit on my stock wheels without doing major trimming?

The Billies in the back should pick it up a little bit. i don't see how adding them would do nothing.... but i could be wrong.

How would it add lift? The front 5100s add lift by preloading the coil, as there is no coil in the rear to preload the 5100 is nothing more than a better shock.
