    Never heard of anyone running that wide of a tire on any suspension setup on a tacoma. That's equivalent to around a 335.

    Doesn't really matter what kind...I'm just curious about the size on my 05' Taco. There are several kinds...will I still be able to wheel off road with that wide of a tire and a 6" lift? I seen a few other inquiries but no experience with running em. Hawaii seems to have a few but no wheeling pic's....maybe my sign. :cool:

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    my buddy Timicha runs 33x13.50x15's on his lifted 1st gen (3.5" via CO's and a 2" body). They're hella wide, personally I wouldnt go wider than a 12.50 but they do look pretty good in that size.

    Yea...kinda conflicted on looks vs practicality. I mean the roster tails that would be shooting up just from a wet road vs damn that looks good. Really curious about rubbing off road on a sec. gen. tho....nobody seams to run it if they wheel.

    I'm doing the same thing. I'm ordering Mickey Thompson MTZ's in a 33X13.5X18 with a 6" Fabtech lift, using a 10” rim and a -25mm offset for a 2006 Taco. I’m finding that it depends heavily on the offset and wheel size. My friends Tacoma (07’) has a similar configuration as previously described (6” lift with the 33X12.5 tire) his is a -12mm offset, and he does get some rubbing off-road when turning hard left and maintaining a pinhead corner. With that said, I’m 90% sure that at minimum, you, “and I” will have to cut/modify the front body mounts just inside of the back of the front wheel well and again for the front inside cowling. Also, be sure depending on you lift, that the inside wall of your tire (because it's so wide) will not rub the steering knuckels. Sucks, but that’s the expense paid to install some 33 x 13.50 steam rollers I’m finding!

    Those are Solid! Whats the overall tire diameter? wheel offset? lift height? Do you have any rubbing?
