Factory wheels after toytec 3" lift?

Gentlemen, I got some easy questions for a first post.

I want to add a 3" toytec lift and keep my factory wheels.
What brand tire and tire size will work for this?

Will the wheels need to be back spaced?

For anyone out there who has done this, do you have any pictures?

Welcome to TW! I am not into truck lifts so I do not have the answer to your questions but I am sure you have come to the right place. This should be an easy question for many members of the site. Be sure to post some pictures of your truck when you get time.

Welcome to TW!

I am suprised you haven't gotten a response on this yet. We have some guys that have the knowledge, but they were probably busy all weekend.

I am with rhoppas - no clue, but I wanted to welcome you to TW anyway.

Cheers!

I'd love to help but my lift knowledge is not very extensive. I'd like to see some responses to this thread though. I would like to get a 3in lift but i'd like to see how it looks with stock wheels and larger more aggresive tires. if anyone has advice or especially pics i'd love to see em

Stock rims?

Pengaleng, Stock Toyota rim on your vehicle is 16x7. I assume you have 245/75/16 tires w/o TRD pkg. You might be able to go to 285/75/16 which would add 1.6 inches to width and 1.2 inches to heighth. You might consider burning off stock tires, saving some money and getting FJ TRD rims. Put them on my 3"lifted Tacoma w/ 305/70/16 Yoko's They look great!

TacoChef:

I do have the TRD 4x2 prerunner. So I can fit 305/70/16 onto my stock TRD 16in rims after my lift. CORRECT?


Man that is a good idea. I'd love to see pictures of the truck w/ rims from a FJ and the lift.

So what lift did you go with? (tuff country) did you install blocks out back or AAL?

I would be happy to post any images you might email me.

FJ Rims

The FJ rims are 7.5 in. wide. With the 305's up front I had to add a
1/8" spacer to clear the A-arm. Also I had to remove the mud flap up front. I could grind down but haven't got to that yet. I did purchase the Tuff Country lift w/ rear add-a-leaf. I'll send you a picture soon.

I will be getting a Readylift 2.5 in Spacer + Strut Leveling Kit tomorrow..I will be keeping my stock wheels..which are 17 in. ..I am tryin to narrow down the size tire I will be adding..i am assuming that it can be around a 285/70/17 or something similar..I will have pics up hopefully by the end of this upcoming week..

Although..my Taco is a 2008..4x4 TRD Sport SR5 Double Cab..dont know if that throws off anything..
