    Anybody have this setup? Post those pics and show'em off! I'd also like to know what size tire would be the biggest possible on a stock trd offroad suspension.

    265/65/18 is going to be the largest tire you can fit on stock suspension. They are the same width and diameter as the ever-popular 265/75/16. Here is an old pic of my truck with 18x9's and no lift.

    And here's today, 1.75" lift up front, still the same 265/65/18's

    I really like the stance of your truck with the 18x9's. BBS are a bit out of my price range but I would like to know more about the specs on your wheels. Like backspacing and offset. Your truck looks real good and easily one of my favorites on this forum. I'll end up getting the 5100's later down the road. Hows the ride with the current setup? Harsh? Comfortable? The wifey will be driving the rig a lot and I'm trying to keep the truck comfortable.

    KPT is one of my inspirations on this forum.

    Here is mine with 285/60/18's on 18x9 Method Race Wheels (4.75" BS). I have a 1.75" Bilstein lift in the front and stock 4 leaf pack in the back.

    ^^Biff that looks awesome. Any rubbing with the 285's?


    Thanks very much. I actually got the BBS's off of craigslist for under $100 a wheel :eek:.

    I love the ride with the 5100's. It's stiffer than stock, but it handles more like a truck than an SUV now.
