Hi Tacoma owners, I Just bought a 2wd access cab sr5 2009(My first pickup). I got it 2wd because of the fuel economy. Found the wheels too small and the rims ugly and came very low too. I lifted it 2.75inches and got mags with motomaster 265/75 R16 off road tires. My fuel economy went down in a rush. And the front tires are rubbing. Can tire brand affect mpg? What is a good tire size for a good look and good fuel economy (Original 15inches are too small).
I wondered if after all a 4wd would have given me the same mpg as now? Anyways I have the truck and gonna stay with it. I want to go off road.But the truck has no rear lock. Any suggestions or previous experiences? how much would it cost? does it affect MPG? Mine has the LSD, Is it any good off road? what Does it do? Sorry if theres too many questions, I'm new to the forum and happy it exists
