2012 Tacoma 3" lift

Hey i just bought a 2012 Tacoma i want to put a 3" lift kit and get new tires and rims. I have been looking at the Firestone destination M/T i am just wondering what sort of clearance a 3" lift would allow. What size tires could i put on.

Most people with a 3'' lift run a 285/75/16 or 285/70/17.

You'll need new wheels with a backspacing of 4.5 or less, Or wheel spacers- to fit a 285 tire to prevent your tire rubbing on everything.

Im not sure what you mean by backspacing tire sizing and tires are a whole new thing for me. Would you guys be able to clarify how the sizing works.

Lift is irrelevant with 285's, that's why I said lift or no lift. If you want to run them, you'll be trimming.
