    looking for some thoughts on a lift and tires.

    thinking toytech 3" coil and AAL so i can get some bigger tires. the stock 245's offroad package are on right now. any suggestions? my english teacher budget will allow approx. $6-700 for tires. i need something that can handle new england weather. nitto terra-grapplers? i'm open to all suggestions. i'll get back on to check the forum, but if you have the time, and email would be even better, mac_jackson@indianmountain.org

    thanks, folks.

    The nitto looks good in the photos, but I know no-one who runs them, what does that say ?, it says I know no-one, he he. If your buget was a little bigger i'd say the BFG's KO's, but maxing at $700.00 I would go Cooper ATR's or Dunlop Radial RT's. Good luck, when you get your new meats, send pix. :D

    a/t tires will have the best treadwear and all-around wet/dry performance. i just prefer the more aggressive look of the m/t tires, but then again i'm willing to deal with the slightly slower cornering and faster treadwear because i'll look cool lol

    thanks, folks. so before i start the ball rolling is there any reason i shouldn't be getting the toytec 3" with aal's? anything else i should be worried about when selecting the tires? for those that may have lifted their own chariot, what size wheels have you gone with?

Ripped out the crappy FM Modulator & installed a PA-15-toy interface. OEM bed matt.
    I personally like smaller rims (15"). You can get I nice set of Pro Comp rims & BFG 32 X 11 1/2 for around $1050.00

    Once I burn thru my stock tires on my 08, I'ts going up 3" w/ the 15" rims again.

    maction,

    i did the 3" toytec lift with the aal and i put on 33's.... i have 16" rims so the tires are 285/75/ R16

    I had to trim a little of the flemsy wheel well plastic to get 100% clearance but it's worth it.

    u can click on my picture for more pics.

    can you even fit a 15" wheel on a 2nd gen without the wheel contacting the brakes?

    L_Jackson,

    I like that look. That'll be my move. 285/75/16. Thanks for the suggestions and comments, everyone.

    Alot of people out here run and love the grapplers. Me, I am waiting for budget reasons too, but will probably go with them.
