    Hi,
    I'm thinking of lifting my truck. After talking to Toytec, I think that would be the right choice for me. They say their Ultimate lift kit does not void warranty and that the Toyota service department can even do the install. I don't have the tools to do it and I'd rather have it done by people who know what they're doing.

    Anyways, I'm doing it mostly for the look. I use the truck daily for work and every week-end to drive some dust/rocky roads to access dark sites for night sky observing. Just to say that it'll get dirty..

    Ok, I'm not too familiar with tires and wheels specs. It's gonna be installed by the garage, but I don't want to go there with wheels/tires that won't fit my truck - lol.
    So what I had in mind in terms of tire was: (17")
    Pro Comp 33x12.50R17


    Can you tell me if those would be compatible with my truck/lift kit? if so, what are the specs of the wheels I'd need? Tire with is 12.5" but which width should I be looking at for the wheels?

    I hope I'm not gonna get flamed for overkill :/ I like the look, what can I say...

    Last question, noobish as well: where do you put your fifth offroad wheel? it's too big to fit under truck, isn't it?


    Thanks for the help guys

    That tire is a 15, your tires are 16's or 17's aren't they? I think the 33's will fit though? I dont have a 3" lift but someone will chime in on that.

    keep the stock wheels and paint them black for that black out look...good look for a star watcher like you. That would look good with your truck.

    I could be wrong, but I don't think 15" rims will work on your truck???

    16 is about the minimum you can go for rims. Those tires should be okay-depending on the rim dimensions. Offset/Backspace determine alot about what tires fit and what must be trimmed.
    I'm not sure exactly what to tell you. but a backspace 4.5 inches or smaller I think works.

    The wheel is only 3 inches bigger...I think folks have modified their under bed storage area (cut some guides out) and fit larger tires. You can get a prerunner type gate and mount the tire up there. Or get a bed mount...There are a few options around...Good luck!!
