Tire, wheel, and suspension question!

I have a really nice new set of 31 X 10.5 X 15's from my 1995 Bronco that I just replaced with 35 X 12.5 X 15's. My current tires on my 2008 Tacoma Double cab 4X4 are about done and I would like to replace them with my 31's. I know that I will have to buy new rim's (I want to do this anyway). My questions are, what are the best rims to buy? And what is the best size rims to buy for those tires? My current wheels are 16" with 6 lugs. Also, how much lift (if any) is required for those tires and rims? I want to add a little lift anyway. What is the best lift for a Tacoma? I really appreciate your help! THANKS

15 inch rims won't fit a second gen. Time to craigslist the 31s.

Yes, the front calipers. In fact many brands of 16's dont even clear.
