    I wasn't sure if i should put this here or in the suspension forum, so i hope i can get some response here.

    I have a 3" Revtech lift and am going to be putting my stock TRD Off Road wheels back on, but i need figure out what size tires to get.
    After searching around it seems that most people are running either 285/75/16 or 265/75/16.

    To run either of these sizes will i need spacers?
    Does anyone have pictures of their truck with stock TRD Off Road wheels with any size tire and a 3 inch lift? If you do, please post a picture here and let me know what size tire you have.

    Thanks!

    I don't know 100% but I am pretty sure you will need spacers due to the lack of backspacing on the stock wheels. You will probably have issues with the wheels rubbing on the UCAs.

    5100s at 2.5 and 265/75r16 on my stock prerunner wheels. I just painted them like this.
    Don't know if this helps you. Worked without spacers but I added 1.25 spacers for stance

    I was running a 3" lift on stock 17' rims if that helps. The tire size was 275/70r17 BFG AT TA and they did rub but only when I was backing up and not enough to do any damage.

    Thanks! Looks good!
    So no issues when you didn't have the spacers in?



    Do you know what they here rubbing on? Fender liner? UCA?
    Any pictures?

    Hey, I have a 3" lift with stock trd wheels, I put 265/75/16s on them and they never rubed WITHOUT a wheel spacer.....however! i just installed 1.25" wheel spacers and it LOOKS so much better with the stock wheels.

    check out my pics, to see

    Yah it was the UCA's but very little and only in reverse on full lock. Sorry but I dont have pics of the factory because I went with aftermarket 17 after but here is a pic with the 275/70 17 on aftermarket for you.

    Not a single issue with mine before spacers.
