    Here is an update for everyone to get all excited about 35's on the new tacos again.

    I have 35's on my truck right now. Well they are 315/75R15's. A buddy is running my old wheels and tires off of my old '98 taco and he wanted me to put his on my truck to see if it fit or what. Well they are on 16x10's with 4.5" backspacing. I could make them fit very easily...like very easily. very little more needs to be trimmed, but I have been slowly trimming more and more away just cause I knew there would be a day that I put some 35's on. If I took the front fender flares off, no rub up front, and if I put my axle relocation brackets that I made on, the rear would fit easily, if they were on a narrower wheel. In fact they where on a 16x8, I wouldn't need to even do all of that, I think. But I took some pics and boy it looks good with some tire under there. And the wide wheels to fill the wheel well all the way out to the side looks great, but hinders the clearance. So now I am really debating keeping my wheels and going with the 305/70R17 GoodYear MT/R's or selling the wheels and tires and and going with 16x8's and going with 315/75R16's. But the one major downfall for any of it is the fact that the transmission will not stay in 5th gear anything over 70mph. And if it is windy or you come to a uphill grade, it will shift. 3.73's and 35's are not friends in this part of the country.

    Will post some pics as soon as I get them uploaded... But here is one teaser!

    The clearance on the upper control arm. Wheels have a 4.5" backspacing, 16x10 and 315/75R16 tire.

    And just some pretty pics... to show the stance. This is where 10" wheel looks good.

    Way too big... trust me you don't want to run 315's.... Been there done that.
    If you don't regear, your going to regret the whole thing...

    For the price it will cost you to stuff those puppies in there and do it right, for the small gain in ground clearance, it is Not worth it whatsoever.

    Negative side effects of stuffing 35's include but are not limited to:

    1.) Loss of engine power, (Even with re-gearing)
    2.) While were on the topic, Yes you need to regear
    3.) much more costly in Fuel... very much..
    4.) Harder on your drivetrain, which will eventually lead to premature failures.
    5.) Extremely hard on your Rack and pinion and other front end components.

    I ran 35's on IFS before, and was replacing idler arms and pitman arms, tie rods 3 times a year minimum.. Eventually bought MOOG's because of the lifetime warranty.

    Take it for what its worth.. Just my thoughts. Stick to 33's and you'll save yourself a ton of headaches.

    only if you dont have the mods to support it. But judging by the build of his truck, im sure he will do what is necessary to make it work out allright.

    Thank you for your opinion, I too have ran 35's on a IFS truck before also. Only mine didn't have idler arms or a pitman arm. I take it you did not run yours on a tacoma. I did. I know the side effects and it is up to the person running them if it is worth it to them. On my last tacoma, it was totally worth it. And i got 18-19 mpg doing it. A mini truck on 35's locked front and rear will go alot of places it probably shouldn't. Just carry spare parts and know how to work on your junk on the trail yourself and you are fine.

    If you read the first part of the thread you would have noticed that I was just borrowing these from a friend to see if it was even possible at this point in my build. Because to me, it is totally worth it. Especially on the new tacoma. Your screen name sure speaks alot about your attitude. Just so you know I am not filling you full of bs, here is the other tacoma on 35's!

    I can't decide if I should do 4.56's or 4.88's. But I will do one of the two, with a ARB up front and a S/C under the hood.
