    not much at all. the black plastic inside the fender has to be trimmed aroung the bottom. I've got the co's cranked all the way up so maybe 3-3.5" of lift

    You can fit 275/55/18 on a stock tacoma. Some come from the factory with this option. Rims are the 18" Toyota BBS...

    well the coopers i am interested in are slightly smaller than the 275/70 nittos so maybe they wont do much rubbing

    I've been doing tons of reading on 18" tires.... Wanting to go with 275/65R18. Hopefully it should help negate rubbing issues while still getting the hieght I want. You really gotta just check all the manufacturers and the sizes the offer in a R18 size. And have the tire size calculator ready, that thing is money.
