What Do You Think?

Alright got a 2002 Tacoma with a leveling kit. I want to get the Helo HE835's with 285-70-17's. I want to just bolt them up and go no spacers or cutting. Is this possible and does anybody have pictures or other options for me? Heres a early thanks and here's pictures of what I'm looking at as well as my truck.

Also anybody went through tirerack.com for anything? They are much cheaper than any where else I can find.

If you just have a leveling kit, I would guess you would have to do trimming to put on 285's. That's a pretty big tire for just a leveling kit.

As far as Tirerack, I've never ordered anything from them personally, but I've only heard good things about them. Only drawback is you have the perks of going thru a local dealer, such as flat repair, rotation, ect.

Just an FYI, Discount/America's Tire was almost as cheap as Tire Rack when I was buying my tire/wheel setup. They were very willing to negotiate on price. I was planning to order from tirerack, but stopped in Discount Tire real quick just to look and they made me a smokin' deal.

Do you think discount tires would try and beat my price from tirerack? And if the 285 is to big what is the next largest size with 17's that I could do?

No, all the local tire stores know that TireRack is dirt cheap...I doubt they will try to beat a quote from tirerack...they try to sell you on the fact that tirerack doesn't have in-person customer service and you can't send them back if they have any problems.

You could probably run 275/70/17 or 265/70/17, something along those lines I would think

^ I actually got a SMOKING deal during the XMAS on some Goodyear Duratracs because I took some web page print outs of the same tire from 4Wheelparts. They generally want your business even if it means they take a $150 hit from you because they can make it up when you either get the warranty or for other services. Even then most of the times they just want the revenue for the store even if the tires hit cost or a negative margin they will make it up when they sell that 70 year old lady new Michelin's full price for her Cadillac.

I got a set of 265/75/16 Goodyear Duratracs for $650 plus tax from Discount Tire from the price match! That price included installation too!
