5 lug tire size.
 
Alright let's get this straight guys.

The largest tires that can go on with no lift and no rubbing without removing the Black Box is 235/75/15?

If you remove the black box. The largest tire size is 30x9.5/15 with no lift and no rubbing?

I want to lower a 4x2 2013 Access cab w/ 2.7L motor w/ a 5 speed stick.

I would like a set of X-runner 18x8 wheels and I'm thinking hard of getting a 255/55-18's. The stock size is 215/70-15's and they are about 27" tall. The 255/55-18's are about 29" tall. How much is this going to kill my MPG? I had and 1982 & 1983 Toyota SB 4x4 w/ 4.11 gears and installed 33x12.50 and that gave me about 12 to 13 mpg. Until I had 4.88 gears installed.

if your gonna lower a truck keep it stock sized tires or smaller. going bigger is kinda bringing the ride height back up so pretty pointless imo

i got the same truck went from 27 to 31x10.5x15" or 4" diffrence lost aprx 1.5-2 mpg. so u probably wont notice any diffrence depending on how u drive. however im easy on the gas pedal.

Your axle is an 8.4 keep an eye out on the tw classifieds for someone selling the 4.10s out of their 6 lug. The black box is in the front fender well behind the fender liner and when you put bigger tires they tend to rub they are for the mud flaps i think. What size wheel are you trying to run?

Any tire equivalent to about 28-30 inches would fill the fenders stock height. And for gears try east coast gear supply
