Just barely!!! a slight rub..... not sure if i should take the front mud flaps off, or use a little hand held sander to bur down the flaps where it rubs......

did/does yours rub?

Looks nice man.

Your wheels are 8" with a 4.5 backspace?

I have been doing a lot of research on wheels and tires and want to throw this out to the forum.

With your tires which are about 33" diameter and just barely touch the plastic, what I'm thinking of doing is running 16x8" pro comps with a 4" backspace with Super Swamper Thornbirds, size 30x11.5"

The Swampers and yours are about the same overall width but mine would be 30" (factory 245's tires are 30.5") diameter instead of 33" which would give me 1.5 inches more dia. clearance than 33's but rim would stick out a half inch more than yours.

I didn't want to do a (drastic 6") lift but I think the kit that lifts the front 3" and the rear 2" would work for my application, without rubbing the spindle arm? I did want to level out the rake anyway.

I'm going to remove the mud flaps anyway but I think with a 3" lift, my theoretical setup would clear the spindle??? Yes no? maybe? I don't care how much plastic I need to trim but I'm wondering about hitting the spindle, or whatever the thing in the back is called.

Thanks

chad,

I don't think they will hit, i will do some find out what my back spacing is and take some pics for you, (later today)....

i don't know if you will be happy with 30's and 3" lift....

I dont want to critize anything anyone does, but these are pics of a 3" lift in the front with 265/75's....

my personal opinion is they have too much wheel well showing.... BUT the tires are worn out and not aggressive at all.... so you put on new aggressive tires and it might look awesome...

just my thoughts....

*will post clearence pics a little later*

but what rim size are u talking about too??

285/75/16=32.8" tall
285/75/17=33.9" tall

265/75/16=31.7" tall
265/75/17=32.7" tall

so if both of yall are running 16's, then ur tire is only 1.1" taller than his.

my bad..... the tires in the pic are 265/70 not 75.....

so they should look good!

now my truck is leveled out... finally!
this pic shows there to be plenty of room, granted i will get an allignment tomorrow that will bring it a little closer.. now wheels look like \-------/
but even then i think everything will be fine..... shouldn't move in that much

had stock 245/75 r16.... then got the rims and got a set of used tires for them (new the lift and 33s where in the near future) the used ones where 265/70 16s ....

i ran those used ones for the past couple months and only a couple days after the front end lift ....

sorry for the confusion

Yes I was thinking the same thing too about that extra gap. But with the aggressive looking and wider tires and being pushed out a tad more, I think it might look nice. If it doesn't I could just run something similar to your sizes.

On your setup how much clearance do you have between the inner sidewall and the rod (not sure what the hell it's call lol) that is only half a inch away from rubbing the stock setup? Do you have about 1.25" of clearance? I'm still trying to determine if the offset on the 07's and 08's is actually 5.5? I'm pretty sure it is.

I'm planning on getting the truck around next Christmas early Spring after I pay of my Z. Everything I've done to my z was just the opposite of what I want to do to a Tacoma:-P
