I just got an access cab TRD off road and want to lift and get new wheels and tires. I've read a bunch on here but Its pretty hard to make decisions without seeing things in person. Im hoping someone here can lead me in the right direction before I buy a bunch of stuff.
I'm planning on 5100's up front, OME springs with the shocks set either at zero or .85. In the rear the icon leaf spring at 1.5 inches.
Wheels= 16 in Konig counter steers with 5.5 inch backspace and 8 inches wide.
The big question is the tires. My install shop said it should be no problem to run 285's with the lift but down south motorsports thinks I may need UCA's to keep it from feeling wandering at highway speeds. I want to run procomp xtreme all terrains either 265/75 or 285. If I run the 265 I would set the 5100 at zero and hopefully have a nice ride even at highway speeds. Im worried the tire may look a little dinky tho as I currently have some cheap 265/70/16 on my stock wheels and they don't look good or big.
So what do you all think about 265 vs 285? Will 265 look good or undersized? Will 285 look really big or just right. I want it to look aggressive, but not like a miniature monster truck lol. Thx
