ordered lift, need advice on tire size

I've ordered a 2.75 inch front. 1.5 inch rear, tension adjustable lift/leveling kit. I want some narrow tires that are tall enough to look good in the wheel well. It is a 2007 dbl cab lwb taco. It is my daily driver. 80 percent hiway rest off road. Any experienced advice?

If you like tall and narrow. You could go 255/85-16. If you don't off-road much, and are concerned with mpg, stick to an all terrain tire in a 265/75-16. It will look good and be flushed inside your wheel well.

Thanks for the quick replies. I forgot to mention. I want to keep my stock 2007 rims which are 17 inch. I'd suppose the same tire sizes come in 17". Again, thanks any input is appreciated.

Use a tire size calculator, but you risk rub with anything bigger than 32" in my experience

lift and tires

Okay, thanks again for the info. I have used the tire calculator. It helped a lot. I have 17" wheels. I like the narrowness of the 245 and 255's, i'd even go with 265's but am having trouble finding tires. This is my daily driver so i;d like all terrain tires. I am also buying spacers to set the narrow wheels out a bit. where do you guys find tires? I am having trouble with the 75 to 85 widths with a 17 inch rim. Might you also know if there are pics of someone with a 3 inch lift and narrow all terrain tires?

Thanks
