How to fit a 33 with a 3 inch lift

I have installed my 3 inch suspension lift(billy 5100's all around, aal in rear, and eibach coils up front. I have purchased new tires that are 265/75/16 because I have a stock rim. I really badly want to fit 33x11.50 at least, but would really love to fit 33x12.50, with very minimal to no rubbing. I was wondering what it would take to do so, and if it takes a different rim, does anyone have any suggestions on what kind?

Plain and simple your not going to fit a 33x12.50 on the truck without a lot of cutting. if you want just a little trimming (for street driving only) 33x10.50 would be the widest on a 3" lift. I have 33x12.50's and I rub EVERYWHERE front,back,top and the frame and I've cut away at least 2 or 3lbs of sheet metal.

I have 33-12.5 on my Tacoma mounted on FJ Cruiser TRD special edition wheels. Done with a standard 3" lift/leveling kit. The tires I am running are Super Swamper Trxs. I believe this is possible because I have not gone to a wider wheel. They recommend a wider wheel for these tires. I get a scrape once in awhile on my coil spring housing but not often enough to bother me.

The OP has a 1st Gen completely different truck.

No they just put you further out and you rub the fenders more. I had to cut 2" of metal of my front fenders just to drive on the street without rubbing. With a 8" wheel it would be less but you would still have to do a lot of cutting to fit 33x12,50's on a 1st Gen without rubbing. And that's street driving only there is no way to fit 33x12.50's on a 1st Gen that don't rub if you wheel your truck hard without major wheel well modification.

Op has a first gen...they fit tires differently so your advice is useless.

Op, 33x10.5 doesent rub anywhere for me on stock rims, so if you want to avoit chopping that would be your best bet. Blackdawg has some stupid wide tires, go find his build and ask him how bad it rubs and how much he had to cut out. If I remember he just pounded the pinch weld, but it was still rubbing pretty good on the bumper. He does have a 97 though, and we are not sure why, but it just seems like the older 1st gen handle lifts and fit tires better than the newer ones.

I guess because of my fenders, but I'm running 33 12.50's and I'm not rubbing at all in the front with my 5100's and Eibachs.

Yeah it's a lot easier to fit 32's but if your a 4x4 and you stuff your tires anything larger then 265's and your going to rub somewhere.

It's really up to you I've cut enough to just rub a little backing up at full lock on the street. Off road on the other hand i rub everywhere and there is really nothing i can do to stop it. I don't mind it but that's me

If you put a 5100 and eibach/toytec coils on which you have, you can run 33 12.50. I'm doing it now
