    Sorry guys, I'm semi new to this and still looking at what to do for tires and tire size. I have a stock 05 DC Prerunner sport. Im looking to do a small lift...(yes i mean small) under 3inches. Money is definetly an option here. I dont have enough money for the Bilsteins 5100 and an add a leaf. I dont really offroad much so performance is really not a option as well. Just love the look of a slightly lifted taco.

    so heres the thing, i want a bigger tire all around but nothing too beefy. Just want it noticeable. Was looking at 270/65/17. Like a Toyo Open Country A/T.

    Since im not gonna do the bilsteins should i do blocks? what kind?

    What size tire would look good with 1 inch blocks? I have no clue, thats why im here.

    Thanks in advance!

    3" OME lift with 885 coils on nitrocharger 90000 shocks with 5mm trim packer on driver's side, TC UCAs, Rear OME Dakar leafs with nitrocharger shocks, All-pro U-bolt flip kit and 3* Toytec shims, extended rear brakelines, 16" Raceline Rockcrusher 887 wheels with 3.6" backspacking, BFG KM2 305/70/16 tires, Doug Thorley header, Doug Thorley catback exhaust, Volant CAI with ram air, Weathertech floor mats, Kicker 12" sub, Kenwood 500W RMS amp, Relentless Fab front and rear bumpers, 4.88 gears, custom flatbed with swing out tire carrier
    I had a DayStar 2.5" spacer kit with 2" blocks - it was the cheapest I could find at the time and worked surprising well. 265/75/16 (32x11.5" I believe) tires are what I had and looked pretty good.

    Where can I purchase the Day Star 2.5 inch? And the 2" blocks in the rear? Or those go all around too?
