Hi everybody. Great forum and I'm so happy I found this. Thanks in advance for all your help.
First off, I know very little about raising trucks and bigger tires. I have a 2003 Tacoma SR5 with access cab and I want to raise the truck. Basically give it a prerunner look not monster truck. I just want to add a little style since it looks so lame right now. I will probably never go off roading. Only city driving.
The wheels I have on it are 15". I would like to go with bigger wheels - probably 16" and no more than 17". Can I do this? Also, the current wheels on it have only 5 lugs and all the bigger wheels I find for the tacoma are 6 lug. I did find on Tundras they had 16" wheels with 5 lugs. Could I put these wheels on my Tacoma?
As far as raising the truck, some guy told me that based on the look I'm going after I could just do a leveling kit. With the bigger tires and raising the front so that it is level with the back should be fine. What do you think? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
