    I have a leveling kit 3inch in the front, and 2inch in the rear.
    I have a 2011 Toyota Tacoma Trd sport with a 3 to 2 inch leveling kit. I need a opinion on some bigger tires.. What will fit? I wanna use the wheels I already have which are 17inch wheels. Can you guys give me some options on some bigger tires? Thanks and also I don't wanna trim if tired are to big.

    So, 3-2 is a bit vague. 285's will rub. I have them and I cut out part of the inner fender. Still need a CBC. Go smaller if you don't want to modify anything else.

    265/70/R17 KO2s in C-load. (Avoid the heavy Eload that kills power and MPGs). Largest tire with no trimming required and not overly heavy:

    Listen to @crashnburn80. Love mine, after 12k miles they are wearing on schedule to get 50k. No need to trim, and ride is comfortable and surefooted in all conditions.

    My opinion is to go taller and not wider unless you are going to get something like Bushwhacker flares put on.
    Stock tires already cause some scratching on the paint from rocks and debris let alone a wider set.

    I like my 265/70/17's.

    So you get a supercharger. Problem solved.

    I wish Toyota sold the TRD models with a turbo charger engine option. For the people that mod these trucks, it really is needed.
    Same thing with the 4Runner. Except it should come standard on the 4Runner, that thing needs better stock MPGs.

    Come on Toyota!
