Rims are skinny... 235/75 is as wide as you'll want to go... but be aware that you're REALLY going to feel the power loss and MPG hit. Also, your speedometer will read slow so careful of tickets if you don't drive with a GPS.

10.50 is over an inch wider... your rims are only 6" wide.

But a 31" tire? Without a regear, you're going to hate your truck.
I know you don't have a lot of hills in Florida... but it's seriously going to be a dog.

I'm not sure if that'll fit even with the 3" lift. The Prerunner/4x4 is quite a bit taller than the 5-lug and they need some help to clear 32.

i thought 31s would work though....this lift is basically the same as the readylift, and this is from readylift's site

"Popular wheel and tire sizes used for this vehicle are 16x8, (4.5" backspacing) and 31” tires (245/75R16). For information about tire and wheel sizes please visit the ReadyLift Tire Sizing and Calculator Page.
Be sure to check out the Video Section for a step-by-step video installation instruction on installing the ReadyLift 66-5510 kit."

I don't have a specific recommendation for that lift.
My point is that those tires are oversize for the stock steel wheels.
16x8 with 4.5" backspacing... vs the stock 15x6 with, I think, around 5" backspacing. They're going to be REALLY tucked in and will likely rub the frame or control arms.

I had 285's on a Suburban and they rubbed the frame. A lift does not cure all clearance issues.

Agree I'd get a wider wheel if you plan on running that tire size
10.5" wide tire on a 6" rim is not the greatest idea not to mention the offset might be really positive on the stockers which may cause rubbing issues on the inside
15x8 would be a better route
Also a 31" tall tire I say is prefect but I would re gear is I were you
On my reg cab I was running 255/50/19(29" tall)
Mines is 5 speed but you will notice you are flying while it says you are going slow but from stop and go and you stomp it it felt real sluggish I couldn't imagine what it be like on a 31" tire
Stock height tire is 26.85" so I'd say run them tires 15x8 and re fear and you will be happy with the results

I can vouch for your good advice. My 2012 5 lug 2.7 came with 16 inch steel Tundra wheels and 245/R75/16 tires. The truck was a total slug with those big heavy offroad truck tires that were 12% larger in diameter than the stock 215/r75/15 wheels. They put the gearing so high that my speedometer would read only 54mph when I was actually going 60mph.

To correct this condition I had some 235/60/R16 Yokohama high gas mileage passenger car road tires installed today which are just slightly larger than the stock diameter.




...and the difference is night and day.

one thing i always wondered about the tacoma is when youre putting the spacer on the struts up front, you have to cut one of the bolts down to be level with the others..... i wondered why did toyota make the one bolt taller like that? was there a purpose? or was it just made that way?

I noticed that same quirk when I had some spacers removed from the front of my 2012 5 lug. (The spacers were no longer needed since I went to smaller diameter street tires.)

The only thing I can think of is that the longer stud is for indexing purposes to get the strut springs properly oriented when they are being installed.
