Ok so im sure its a question asked and answered a million times but wanted to get something up to date and recommended.
2009 Tacoma Crew Cab Short Bed.. I wanted to just put some beefier tires on her and perhaps new black wheels. Looking to see what is suggested for an upgrade that will clear easily and not be forcing anything to major. I figures a 2.5" spacer for the front:
NOW, all I want to know is what will I be seeing short term and long term for problems or driving changes. What size tires fit simply with a nice little offset and what would be overkill tire sizes. I figured a 285/70-17 would be good. I believe i'll be doing 17's for the price as well as they look proportional on the truck.
Next would be what if any problems would I have putting a 1-2" block in the rear to pick that up a little because I saw a Tacoma with a 2.5 in the front and it looked to saggy in the rear. So probably a 1" block would work just fine.
Truck is a daily driver and doesn't tow ever. No working or anything.
I liked the look of the Cooper Zeon tires.. that or a basic all-terrain tire thats good summer/winter. BF's, Coopers, whatever else people seem to like.
All advise appreciated!!!
Suggestions on brands and tires needed!!!
