    Alright guys, I know this question has been asked probably about one billion times but I'm a noob so I figure I ask one more time.... I just bought a 2011 Tacoma Sport and I have the ReadyLift 3" front / 1" rear Lift Kit
    in the truck... I was looking at tires today and it seems the 285 70 R15 fits pretty snug up against the UCA... there's some space but not much... Anyway is there any chance I coud go with 285 70 R17 running off that lift set up?? The R15's look like pretty thin tires IMO... .thoughts???:confused:

    No worries, so you're asking if you can go from the 265/65R17's that came on the truck to 285/70R17's without rubbing issues? You're original question confused the hell out of me, haha.

    I am really confused here, but just FYI 15" rims don't fit on 2nd gen tacomas, except for the base models.

    I just want to make sure I won't rub the UCA with a 285 70 R17 wheel. I have the ReadyLift 3" front / 1" rear Lift Kit in the front but that UCA scares me with the ways it's positioned.. Just want to check before I get new skins..

    ^ you will need aftermarket wheels with 4.5" backspacing, or wheel spacers.
