    First things first, I did search but could not find anything so I apologize if this has been covered before.

    The question, I'm getting a 2" front leveling kit from tuff country for my 2008 Tacoma dbl cab 4x4. What's the biggest tire I can go with? I'm planning on putting 285/75/16 with stock rims and BFG all terrains or Toyo open country all terrains. Would that be ok without doing any modifications as in shaving the fenders etc..

    My current tires are TOYO open country all terrain 265/70/16.

    I apologize if this has been covered please give me a break, I'm a noob when it comes to lifts and tires. Thank you.

    Believe you will need wheel spacers for the front to run a tire that wide...

    265/75r16 is the largest tires you can fit with no rubbing issues whatsoever.

    might need spacers on the stockies though, as mentioned before.

    Oh really? Like I said I'm new to all this so where can I get some wheel spacers? I went to les schwab and they didn't say anything about wheel spacers. Actually, they told me about running 285/70/16 on a 2" front leveling kit

    So, it sounds like its not the 2" leveling kit is the problem, is the stock rim on a 285/70 size tire?

    This gives a lot of info:

    http://www.customtacos.com/tech/index.php?article=137#tires

    I have 265/70-16 Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs on stock TRD Beadlock Style wheels and I'm going with a 3inch leveling kit. It looks good with no lift and I have zero rub issues but I think the lift will make It look a lot meaner. I wouldn't have gone any bigger with tires and I have been told by many to avoid spacers if you can. Go with a different wheel and offset if you want a wider stance and bigger tire...I'm no expert, just relaying what some experts have told me.

    Ok cool. I keep reading on this forum about the duratracs. They must be good tires. Another noob question, what are the specs on a stock 08 tacoma TRD sport rim?

    Thanks for your info.
