    I want to get a 3-4" lift for my Tacoma. My problem is, What size tires would look good, Without burning out my clutch. BTW, My truck is a 2.7l and a 5spd.:eek:

    $2811 was out the door. Now just the lift was $699 installed. I was thinking about getting my wheels off Ebay. Maybe some American racing Chamber (black) and Hankook M/T in 285's

    $2811 sounds like a lot of money. Got my truck lifted and front end aligned for $495. Wheels and tires were $1416 at America's Tire.

    Mine are 265's, so they're probably a little less expensive than 285's. 285's would look great if you can get them to fit without rubbing. But, with 4 banger power you might end up wanting to re-gear your truck when you're done. The 265's made a noticable difference for me.

    All depends on what kind of lift they quoted you on
