Before and After lift with question on wheels

Installed toytec 3" w/ rear AAL.
Now my question is what is the largest tire I can fit on my truck?
And what is the largest tire that will work with the stock rim, or do I need to go with a bigger rim to get a bigger tire.

This is a 33" tire but is skinnier than 285/75r16 which results in less/no rubbing

Thanks guys,
So I could still run a 285/75r16, if I wanted a thicker/wider tire.. I would just rub a little? I want a bigger tire but I don't want to lose the beefy wide look

you can run a 285/75/16 and do a little trimming and maybe a cmc and be fine

right you can run the 285/75r16 and with 3inches up front you'll probably only have minor rubbing. you may have more rubbing when flexing/hitting big bumps

By rubbing do you guys mean hitting mechanical parts such as upper control arms, or rubbing like taking a corner and rubbing the plastic surroundings?

With a stock OEM wheel , you will need wheel spacers to run 285/75/16's

If you want to run 285/75r16's with your lift and stock OR rims, you're going to need wheel spacers in the front so that the tire clears the UCA. If you don't have spacers with that size of a tire and the stock rims, you're going to hit the UCA.

I'm running 285/70r17 Goodyear Duratracs on my truck and the front is a little over 3' with my Bilstein 5100's set at .85 with OME 885x coils. I rub at full lock in reverse and had to do the cab mount chop as well as a lot of plastic trimming.

Would these be the kind of spacers I would want to put on my truck? http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/buy...l-spacers.html
I don't know how much spacing is needed so that I don't rub.


P.S. Thanks for the help guys

I would recommend Spidertraxx 1.25' hub centric spacers, a lot of guys on here run them and have zero problems or complaints

Go with some new Spidertraxx spacers. I've linked to the Toytec site where you can buy 'em.


I have them - very nice. highly recommended.

Spacers in the front only or on all 4? I'm in the same situation.
