    Hey Guys! I'm planning on ordering the Mickey Thompson MTZ radial tires size 33/12.50/15R . i have the factory tires on right now, will i have to get a lift kit to get enough clearance? if i do about how many inches will i need to lift? and what are the best options price wise.
    thanks in advance! :)

    You're good to go!! Actually, you can go 35's with no lift whatsoever.
    I would go ahead and order bigger tires, you'll want them later.

    15s? I know for a fact 15"s don't fit and I not sure but with stock wheels and 12.50 wide tire you might rub the UCA I have 315/75/16 on stock TRD rugged wheels and they rub the UCA

    Yeah I wanted 35s but thought I would have to lift the truck for that but if it gets good clearance and doesn't rub then I'm definitely going for 35s haha :D

    You have 16" currently?

    Chances are - 15" WILL NOT work because it won't fit around the brake calipers.

    I can't say for certain - but - I would stay with the same size you have now (or bigger) and avoid any headaches later.

    if 35's fit on stock suspension what is a good leveling kit to use, I have been hearing a lot about bilstein 5100, would it be better to use a spacer or get a whole shock kit?

    35's WILL NOT FIT on stock suspension
    33's WILL NOT FIT on stock suspension

    You really need to use the search button at the top blue bar. Thousands of threads to find the information you seek.

    unless you cut the piss out of your fenders 33s wont fit without a 2.5-3 in lift 35s will not fit on stock and without cutting you would need at least 6 inches.... 15 inch wheels do not fit over the breaks this is discussed too much for a new thread which is why people are telling you otherwise because iff your not willing to search they arent willing to take this as a serious question
