3inch lift help

I have a 09 trd sport. I want to run 33in tires with either 17s or 18s. Ok now for the questions. First Im only doing this for looks dont really do any offroading other than going down sum dirt roads and pretty smooth ones at that. Next will I be able to fit 33s with a 3in lift. If this is possible what lifts do yall suggest knowing that I want this setup mainliy for looks. Thanks in advance.

you can fit 33s stock with the right backspacing on a wheel and trimming.

I've seen some people run into troubles with this and a lift... No thank you on making a 9 pt turn to get out of a grocery store parking lot lol.

Do plenty of research man, and there are quite a few folks that posted info related to that on TW, you just have to find it.

For a street truck you will be fine you will probably need to remove your front mud flaps. But what size are you looking to get? there is a lot of 33's from 10" wide all the way to 15" your not going to have a problem with the height of the tire its the width.

If you go between 12" and 13" you will need to do some trimming even for road use.
