max tire size on stock 17" rim with 2.5-3" lift

Hello out there,

I am considering doing the bilstein 5100s set to 2.5 on the front and toytec aal for tsb on the back lift setup and was wondering what size tires I could fit on my stock trd sport 17" rims that would not rub (minor fender trim maybe ok). I am thinking bfg a/t KOs and want to be able to get them mounted at a shop with a warranty. Also, would I need wheel spacers? Any thoughts?

Thanks!

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I have a 3" revtec lift and 285 bfg a/t ko's. I dont have spacers and dont have any rubbing issues, but any larger tire wouldn't fit. I have 17" FJ rims

he's talking about the AAL on top of having the TSB. toytec offers an AAL to further lift the rear after the TSB.

Hey Senor Taco,

Looking at your pics you're not running the stock rims for those tires though right?

Hey newlife, did you have to put wheel spacers in? Do you get a lot of rocks getting shot up at the truck from the tires because of the wider stance?

Good question. I think they will fit with a little trim and wheel spacer

yes 1.5" spacer and the wider stance doesn't make rocks fly up at all and I would notice because I'm a detailer and I'm always looking for flaws on my truck.

It looks like this however I would recommend an alignment right after the lift:

Truck looks sweet! Definitely going to go with the BFG A/Ts myself. Really debating whether it is worth going to the 285s and having to use spacers and trimming or if I could get away with the 275s without any spacers or trimming and if it would be very noticeable difference. What kind of spacers did you get and how much are they if you don't mind me asking. Probably a good idea so you can have some more space between the tires and the stock UCAs. I was a little pissed this winter when I realized I couldn't fit chains on my front tires. Do you have any pics of the side view? Cheers!
