Tire & rim selection for 3" lift 4x4

Hi everyone, new guy here and I've been researching this site to help me select a lift kit and wheels for my 09 Tacoma 4x4 double cab. Wondering if anyone knows if the XD revolver rims 18" x 9" with -12 offset and 4.53 back spacing paired with Nitto Dune Grapplers LT325 60 r18 will fit on my truck with a Toytec 3" ultimate lift kit w/ AAL for TSB. I'm mostly driving on road and tow a boat alot but like the off-road capability when needed. Are the tires going to be too wide to clear and are 17' wheels a better choice for any reason.
Thanks

LT325/60R18, Nitto Dune Grappler

325 is way to big for 17's or 18's, go with 275 or 285's. i would go with 17's because the tire will be cheaper.

I'm also in the process of purchasing/installing a toytec ultimate lift and will be going with 18x9 rims (though I'm going with moto metal 957's).

After a whole lot of research - I've decided on Nitto TG's in a 275/65/18 size. Works out to be about 32.07" and should allow me to keep the mud flaps and avoid trimming. However, I won't really know until I get everything on.

That's my 2 cents.

325 is way too big, I have a 3" lift and I put 285/70/17's and I had to trim a lil plastic and cut and bend in and weld my body mount subframe shit. But they don't rub so its cool, haha

it was only on the driver side though for some strange reason

What did you wind up going with on tire size? I'm shopping around now. I'm looking to clear 33x12.5

If your definition of "clearing" is not rubbing on the street most of the time and ru bing lots offroad... 33x12.5 can clear.

If you definition of clearing is not rubbing 33x12.5" will not fit. It will be especially bad at full lock with aftermarket upper control arms. Also be prepared for a drop in mpg of about 25%.
