I just had BFG 285-65-18 KO tires and BMF Novacane Death Metal Wheels 18 installed on my 2013 Tacoma DBL cab 2wd. I also did a Max Trac Susp 2.5" front 1" rear lift.
I wish I would have found this site before I had the work done. I trusted the experience of a local place that has been around 40 years.
Basically I went in knowing the wheels I wanted and that I also wanted BFG All Terrain tires. The guy there did the tire calculations and selected the lift. I really should have done more research but I went with what they said was best for the truck. I do not plan on doing any off roading. I just like the look of a lift with bigger tires and fancy wheels.
They finished Friday and I drove it home. Only to notice that I have some tire rubbing when I am turning. It looks like bottom of the fender wells could almost puncture the tires. When the tire is completely turned, you can barely put a finger between the tire and fender well. There is also a horrible sound when the truck dips and drives over low spots. When I called them, they said they could trim the fender wells where it is rubbing. They said that most lifts need some trimming. Is this a normal/acceptable way to handle the situation or should they be putting different size tires on my truck. What are my rights? Are they going to charge me more money if I ask for different size tires and wheels now? What should I be asking for? This is my first truck. Thanks in advance for replying to my post.
