    Hey everyone, I need a little help with what to do to my Tacoma.

    I have a 2012 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab SR5, and of course 5 lug.

    So far I've bought the ReadyLift for the 5 lug Tacoma's and it says it supports up to a 31 inch tire.

    One of my friends no longer needed his set of tires so it was given to me in hopes I could use them. Dick Cepek LT285/75/16. If Im not mistaken this is a 32.8 inch tire, so basically a 33. According to the lift, this tire will not fit.

    Is there any way to use this tire and make it still look good? I havent bought any rims yet for it due to being worried.

    Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you!

    Hi Ross,
    Welcome to TW. :wave:
    Sorry, I don't know anything about lifts, but I do know that putting really large wheels on your 5 lug is going to raise the gearing enough kill the power of your 2.7. Mine came with 245/75 tires on 16 inch steel Tundra wheels, and it was so sluggish and slow. It took excessive clutch slipping to get it moving, it bucked going up steep hills, and I could drive it on the freeway in third gear. When I put tires and rims (235/60/16) to match the stock wheel diameter (215/70/15) it came back to life again. :)

    I was kinda worried about the big tires i currently own. Possibly a 265/75/16 or so with the lift would work better you think? Trying to make my new truck look nice with some wheels and tires haha

    i think the most you should run would be 265/70/16 that what steven (Stupid Hurts) use to run on his tacoma access cab when he had a 3" life look at his build thread !

    Wheel size won't change anything. It's the width, weight and OD of the tire that matters.
    Nice looking truck OP.

    Without a lift on, could I fit 31/10.50-R15 tires?

    Finally finalized what is going on the truck. 16 inch beadlocks on 31 inch Adventuro MT tires. Now just gotta get someone to put the ReadyLift on so I can get those bad boys on my truck. Will post pics once its all done.

    Thanks for the help everyone, any other cool mods around I would appreciate to know about haha.

    It will probably be a week or so, the person who I want to do my lift is a little busy until then. No worries though, just ready to have the truck lifted and looking better!

    Op u can go 265/75r16 if u remove the black box and install the readylift. Annnnnddd u can find this tire size p rated to save weight in at tire. No rubbing whatsoever. I ran that size with a 4.5 bs wheel with no issues. It will feel a little sluggish but let's face it my 2010 wasn't fast to start with. It will make the truck look a lot better.

    with the larger tires how are you getting around the speedo issues? Any idea as to the cost to have it recalibrated?

    Okay so its going down sometime this week or early next week, going to end up putting the lift on with new tires and rims!

    31x10.50x15 Geotrac A/T Tires with American Eagle Alcoa Wheels.

    I did have a question though, about the black boxes on Tacomas. I drive a 2012 5 Lug Access Cab, does my truck have those black boxes and if so how exactly do I remove them to be sure my tires don't rub?

    I believe it's a couple hundred dollars or something to recalibrate. I use gps for speed.
