    Hi guys, first post here.

    Looking at getting a new 2010 Taco DC 4x4 or 2x4. I've read the threads about the 5100s and leveling out the front. If I was to put the 5100 on the front at 1.75, does this allow for use of a larger 285 size tires all around instead of the 265? Or will I need to include the AAL on the rear to increase that distance too? Or, is my only option for the 33" to go with the 3" lift?

    All I'm looking for is a little beefier tire look as an aesthetic addition. The truck would be primarily a road warrior with an occasional venture through light snow and maybe a gravel/dirt road but no serious off-roading.

    Thanks for your help. You all seem really squared away about this stuff...

    at a 1.75" lift, you can run a 32" tire (265/75/16).
    if you want to go with a 33" tire (285/75/16), then you will need a 3" lift with some trimming or a 2" lft with lots more trimming.

    for your useage, i would recommend the 5100's at 1.75" and an off road 265/75/16 tire.

    doubt you can run 285's without some major rubbing. at 1.75" with an aftermarket wheel or even stock wheels i would run 265/70/17 or 265/75/16 tires and you should not have any rubbing hardly at all

    Hey Guys,

    I have the same question but I am using the stock 17" TRD sport wheels and I have billies all around.

    What tire can I fit without any rubbing and not have to do any trimming?

    285/70/17 (32.7") or

    265/75/17 (32.65) or

    275/70/17 – (32.16) ?

    thanks!

    Steve

    i dont think that a 265/75/17 exists; at least there werent any on tirerack.com.

    in anycase, read the above posts. they tell you what you need to do to run specific tire sizes.

    Ive got the 16" OffRoad rims (not 17" Sport), and with the Bilstein 5100 at highest, I am going to be putting on (as soon as I have time) 285/75/16s on my stock rims, and SpiderTrax spacers.
    Very little rub, but a bit of trimming of the plastic fender liner... nothing big.
