    ^^^ Uh, yeah. Toytec kits are suspension lift, not body. But as for the tire/wheel setup-
    I've heard of some 16" wheels not fitting on the Tacomas, it would be good to double check with someone that actually has the wheels already. With a 3" lift, 265's look a tad small. Here is an old pic of my truck with 3" lift and some 265's on 17" wheels

    Tacody toytec is a suspension lift not a body lift.

    The wheel and tire combo will work but looks will depend on opinions. I would say go for a little bit bigger tire to fill the wheel well or go with a little less lift if you wanna run the 265's.

    You'll want a 75 profile and not the 70. the 75's will be a tad taller. A 275/75/16 is probably a tough size to find though.

    I say since you have a 2wd just go 2.5 with 265/75's.

    It would look good.
    It's not the biggest you can go, but they are still noticeably different compared to stock.... I'd say go for it.

    YEah that's a good deal! Jaye_t was selling some like those...they look sick. What color is your truck?

    My rims are 17's and they were 150 a piece, so a total of 600. But yours are 18's and for 550? that's a damn good deal
