    I have a 2001 Tacoma PreRunner and I'm in the process of getting Bilstein 5100's on the front and AAL in the back to give my truck a 3'' lift. I'm wanting to get some 35's after I get it lifted, but I'm not too sure what the best tire size are and what wheel size to use. Also, do I need wheel spacers?

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    With a 3" lift you will have to tub the fire wall to fit 35's

    You could do a spindle lift on top of your 3" and fit 35's

    spacers will make it rub worse:)

    That's why I asked. My buddy has some 35's for sale for a great deal, but it seems like that's a bit impractical for my small truck. What's a good tire size for me with a 3'' lift?
