    so i bought a 2010 acess cab 4x4 taco last month, everything i own is lifted so im tryin to lift this one. im a 33 inch type of tire guy so thats what i plan on puttin on it. only thing is im also a wide tire guy so im tryin to put 13.50 or 14.50s on it but that prob wont happen cause i heard it wil not turn out to well so 12.50s on a 12 wide is fine. so besides a 3 inch body lift, what other suspension lift can i add to run 33 12.50 or 13.50 tires with no trimming? also my major ? is the truck has the stock 17 inch rims, can i drop down to 16 inch rims? i have never liked the 17s and am not a big fan of big rims so will 16s fit on the taco?
    thanks guys

    Nice, I'm about 40 min from chesapeake. To run 33's, you're gonna want a 3" suspension lift (preferably coilovers/not spacers) and you're gonna have to do some minor trimming. Good luck!

    Also, yes 16's will fit perfect. The TRD Off-Road comes with them stock. Just make sure your rims have a 4.5" backspacing

    yea thanks everyone, some1 told me i couldnt go lower than 17s since they were the stock rim size but i was like the trd's come with 16s, why does it have to be 4.5 backspacing tho?

    Without the 4.5 backspacing your tires will rub the upper control arm. You could also use a spacer if you'd like.
