    trying to start some research on tires so when i am ready i can buy em.
    thinking 285/70/16 as long as they dont rub. Hankook DynaPro ATM RF10's seem to get a lot of love on tacoma world, but have some mixed reviews.

    wow the price difference between 265/75 and 285/70 is 86 bucks a tire!

    Hell yeah man! Wish i could have been there tho seeing how it's done! Did the AAL come with the new bolts in the back or do i need to buy those??

    Are you going for a 33x12.5 or a 33x11.5 (285s)?

    the AAL come with new center pins, but the center pin wouldnt thread for some reason more than half way down, and would not go backwards at that point either. so i went to ace and bought 2x new bolts and they worked like a charm.

    probably 285's

    Ya I live in the sawyer point apartments. I might do 32's.. I don't want to have to do to much cutting for no rub.
    It sits level. I like it. Not sure about the handling until I get it aligned. But the bumps are smooth.
