    Havent seen a preticular thread yet about this... Is it possible to fit 33's with just leveling my tacoma with 5100's? I understand I might have to trim the bumper a little.. But as long as it is minor I am ok with that.

    The plan:

    5100's
    General Grabber A/T's 33x12.5x17
    Method Race Wheels (Black) 17x8.5

    Please, any thoughts and has anyone done this or tried before? Also pics would be a plus :D

    Thanks!

    I have a good 2.5" and i had to trim a my fender and cab mounts plus i have an offroad bumper and removed my fenders for my 33's. You will most likely need to do a lot more trimming than you would want

    It depends on all kinds of things -- whether or not you have TSB springs (which will determine what "level" is and what ride height setting you put the 5100's at), which tires you buy, backspace/offset, how the tires fit on the wheels, etc, etc. . If you go with 1.75", then the answer is probably no, if you go with 2.5" then the answer is probably yes.

    Dam I was afraid of this... What is the biggest tire size you can get with a 1.75in lift? I was thinking of 275/70/17's. Not usre if I want to go with 285's or 275's. And if I should go with 70 or 75... Any suggestions.

    Again sorry if this is a reacurring thread.

    Im running 33's with just a daystar spacer/ leveling kit in the front. All i had to trim was the plastic under the fender a bit.
