    Guys, i need help. As the title says i got a set of nitto grapplers 265/70 17 with XD 17x9 OS: 0mm BS: 5.00. For my 10' 2wd Tacoma.

    I want to keep the mudflaps, can I go 2.25" on front or should I go 3". I prefer 2.25" since I won't be replacing the UCA's.

    I have an appointment for Saturday to have everything installed with the 2.25" front, 1" back and I have the tsb but have a snugtop. I may be able to change it to 3"front / 1" back. Called the guy at 4wheel parts but I didn't get much help.

    Extrictly city driver but i need to turn all the way to the left and all the way to the right to get in my driveway and leave space for my wife's car that leave earlier than me.

    Procomp leveling kit, it comes as 2.25" front and 1" block for the back or 3" front and 1" block for the back.

    I want to keep the soft factory ride.

    Yea, but you have the stock wheels, do you have spacers? If so how big? Thanks

    The sales guy told me to mount the new wheels and tires and put them on the truck, then measure the height and lift the truck from the center 2.25" and try.

    Installed the wheels and tires today with very minor rubing when turning on the mud flaps. I lifted the truck 2" on the front with a jack and there is plenty of space, I'm almost sure I can fit 275's with the lift. Tomorrow after I install the lift I will post some more info.
    Thank you for your help.

    I think next I will go 275.

    It rides a little bit stiffer but what its really noticeable is the stering, it feels much heavier. No idea about the alignment, I forgot to ask them the print out.
    I meed to do some research and see if replacing the uclas helps the steering
