    I have 2007 DC Tacoma and looking to upgrade to 33" BFG All-Terrain tires (285/75/16) tires / rims. Found them used on CL. I haven't bought them yet, but wondering how much I would have to raise my car by for it not to rub? I am not sure if I want to raise it much or at all so I have to make a decision soon.

    My truck is all stock other and had the TSB suspension done, not sure if that even makes a difference.

    Lots of write ups here... It takes more than just bolting them on. You may want to turn back and go to the 420 until the thought goes away.

    Most do a 3" lift, a frame mount chop and whittle as neccessary. Good luck!

    The wheels push out the tires that far without spacers.

    seriously, you put on spacers too?

    I thought they were out pretty good without spacers.

    The Offset on the wheel determines how far it "pushes" the tires out. You have limited offset on just about any tacoma wheel. My wheels are TRD wheels which are still within spec, thus, it took the spacers to achieve this look by moving the wheel 1 1/4 " away from the calipers.

    How much did the wheels alone add? 1.5"? Plus 1.25" with spacers = 2.75" on each side? About right I am guessing?

    How much rubbing did you have to fix?

    Okay, let me start over. You started with Stock TRD wheels and went to these and that increased your offset by 1.25? or did you add spacers to these wheels too?

    I am confused - sorry

    With this current setup, which is approximately 4 inch of lift my gas milage was reduced to about 15 mpg city and 18 highway. Personally I dont care about the gas milage as I am still adding the TRD Supercharger and I may decide to go higher yet.

    If you have to worry about gas milage then get out of the game now and leave it stock. That to me is like building it to offroad and then it becomes a mall cruiser. I built it to drive offroad so thats where it goes.

    The truck came stock with factory TRD wheels on it. Those wheels you see are Ivan Stewart TRD wheels also. Yes they added some width due to offset but it was the spacers that pushed them out an additional 1 1/4 inches.
