Need larger tires but have know idea!

I have an 06 tacoma with no lift. I am looking at a small lift by Truxxx Lift Kits that will give me up to 3". Along with that I am looking for the largest tire that will fit with no rub. I would really like 33" but not sure if that is an option. If it is however. What is the right size when ordering 33"? for example I have now P265 75R16. What will I need to move to, to have 33"?

If I sound like a complete idiot, it is because my father failed me in the auto mechanic area! Now I am trying to figure it all out on my on, or with your help.

Josey

Depending on how wide of a 33inch tire you get you will be fine with no rubbing, it also depends if you are running aftermarket rims as well. But a cab mount chop will take a way the rubbing

Nothing fancy, just a new grill. But I will put some up. I like The full look. ie: slightly lifted with tires that fill out the whole tire well.

To get a 33" tire if sticking with a 16" wheel...you would order 285/75/16...if going with 17" most come in 285/70/17

well in ur post you said you dont want to rub so you would have to go with a 255/80/17 (16 inch rim wuld be 255/85/16) if you want to keep your stock rims. If you dont mind cutting shit up go with the 285 as suggested earlier and get new rims.
