    Well, it's time for new tires and I'm looking at Fierce Attitude M/Ts. I'm currently running Nitto Terra Grapplers in a 295/75/17 and I'm clearing those easily. The question is, will I be able to clear a 35" Fierce Attitude M/T with minimal trimming?

    My current set-up is: 2008 Tacoma DC/SB TRD OR with a Procomp 6" suspension.

    What exactly did you trim? (pics?) and did you have a body mount chop done?

    Yeah, my truck just sits at 6". Nothing more than that. My Mom is getting them as a birthday present and will probably want to talk to the guys at the shop about sizing and all, as if she knows something. lol

    Why do people still insist on stuffing the biggest tire possible into their fenders. Here is a hint, if you have to cut or chop, then the tire is too damn big. What fits inside the fender in the driveway is a whole different story under full flex on a trail.

    Eh, there are benefits both ways. The extra clearance may be worth it to them...but I have to say, it's been impressive to watch Hodge's 35s literally eat his truck.

    Personally, I think 33 is the right size for these trucks if you're wheelin'. Larger contact patch than 32s, a little extra clearance, but not so large as to put undue stress on the drivetrain or make your braking unsafe.

    But I agree...important to flex it out and see where the contact is, and trim appropriately.
