    I'm getting ready to buy a toytec 3" suspension lift for my 2015 tacoma. Wondering what all you guys are running wheel /tire size and off set on tires. Also wondering if I need spacers if I wanna run 285 70 17

    Most are running 33" tires on 17" wheels.

    I had Spydertrax spacers on mine with my Duratracs.

    Which lift are you considering?

    And I'm trying to stay away from trimming anything. Have been seeing that most ppl are running -12 offset and not having any problems

    I have a 3" lift on mine. just ordered Method Race NV 16" x 8" wheels and soon planning to order 285/75/16 tires. My 4 year old 265/75/16 BFG AT KOs still have a lot of tread life on them so i'll just have to wait till they run out

    How does the 3 inch lift look on stock tires? Thinking about getting the lift as well but will be some time before I need tires.

    here's a picture of when i first got the lift back in Sept. '15. Doesn't look too bad. It will look better though with the 285/75/16 tires

    got the Method Race NV 16" wheels installed yesterday. I like how the tires stick out just a little past the fender flares now vs the stock wheels being tucked in. Gives it a wider stance. DSCF1014.jpg

    They looks good. So I guess my stock 265/70/16 wouldn't look too bad with 3 inch lift. Just until I can get new wheels and tires
