    My "cheap tire place" as those NTGs at 223 a tire, so I'd say the tire price is good.

    It's probably a spacer lift... you're better off spending a bit more cash for a coil lift instead. Check out www.toyteclifts.com or www.wheelersoffroad.com

    if you are looking to offroad some adjustable coil overs are the way to go but they are pricey but spacers are cheaper and it does stiffin the ride some

    I don't plan on doing any off-roading, is it a big difference for the coilovers and the other way on streets ?

    Save your money and buy the coilovers. They are worth the investment and you will be happier in the end.
