Recently I've been looking at getting some bigger tires when I install the lift on my Tacoma but I can't seem to quite put my finger on exactly what to purchase.
Currently I'm running 225/75/16 on a 7.5inch wheel which, if my FIRST TIME tire metric to inches conversions are correct that would put me with a 29.0"x9.0"x16" wheel and tire package (rounding up). First of all I just want to make sure I did that correct...
Now, I have plans of installing the readylift sst kit on my 5-lug which should yield about 2.75'' of lift according to the website. So this is my question....the 29" tires are going to be way too small looking once the truck is lifted so what is a good tire size to go with that will 1)not kill my gas mileage that much and 2) look the most appropriate on a 2.75" lift. The readylift website says that the popular tire size for for such a lift is a 31'' tire..which leads me to my next question. What does that translate to in metric size ? (I'm not a math whiz so don't hate). And also how tall of a 31" tire can I fit without getting into problems with my UCA's or having rubbing issues. I know these kinds of questions are a PITA for you guys, but I've got to learn somewhere right ?
Thanks for and explanations or help you can offer.
