    Wet okoles, Weathertech, Partial Debadged, Mag light mod, ICON c/o, Rear Bilstein 5100, Moto Metal 957's on BFG AT's 285/70/17's
    2009 Tacoma Sport, Double Cab, Longbed 4x4.

    Finally put on a lift and decided to go with ICON Coilovers up front along with the relatively new Camburg ball-joint UCA. Also have a differential drop and rear bilstein 5100 and a single AAL.

    I am about ready to make a big tire/wheel purchase and just need some validation with my thinking. I want to run Nitto Terra Grapplers P285/70/17 with Moto Metal 957 17x9 (backspacing 4.53 and offset -12). Will this workout fine?

    Well for comparison sake, the other place I usually get tires from (savontires.com) has the 265/75-16 anywhere from $160-$212

    Any big difference between the LT and P tires?

    Weight differences mostly. The LT usually carries more load and has more ply to it.
    You'll probably want to do the LT rather than the P.

    Went shopping around today and found a sweet deal on some BFGoodrich A/T's. Going to go with those:). Is the bolt pattern on the 09 Tacoma still 6 x 5.5?
