    new here, and i have a fairly stock 2001 tacoma trd I have read some of the similar threads but wanted to ask a quick question.

    If i was to raise the truck three inches using spacers what is the largest tire i could put on the truck. I was looking at 18 inch rims



    thanks

    Welcome to TW!

    All depends on the Back space of the wheel. Check out some of the tire size threads, and see if there are any pics of wheels you like. And go from there. Also, stay away from teh spacer lifts. Save a little more and get a quality lift.

    You should search the Forum first, theres alot of stuff on this.

    But you could run a 285/75/16 with verry little rubbing/trimming. But you would have to get a wheel that has atleast a 4" back spacing.
    Oh... And some advise, Dont get spacers!!!!
    I had spacers, not knowing better, and hated it soo much! ride was harsh and stiff onroad. Waste of money IMO

    actually, coil spacers might be a viable option for the OP considering the truck will be on low profile tires...

    if planning to run 18 inch wheels, i am guessing you will be running street tires?

    if hoping to run some offroad tires on the 18s, you may want to invest in a drop bracket lift instead...

    Hey guys i currently have a 2006 tacoma with a 3 inch lift and i am running on 275/65r18 hancook at tires. I really dont like the way they look, am new to the offroading system so i need some help. I wanted to put some 305/65r18 BFG KM2, but i am not sure if they will fit without rubbing. Is there anything i could do to avoid rubbing on the fenders.
    thanks.
