    How much lift is required to fit 295/55R20 size tires on my 03 Tacoma. I already have a 2" Front Leveling Kit. Thanks

    You'll be fine with the current leveling kit. You may have some rubbing issues with a tire that wide.

    Alright thanks for the reply. Maybe a little trimming will help with the rubbing issue?

    Exactly, I'm trying to get out of spending more money on lifting it more. I'd love to get away with what I have already.

    On a first gen, 4.0" would be best to try to fit 295's I would think

    So KPT, you're saying I'm at least going to have to lift more?

    He is referring to backspacing of the wheel

    Well I believe the wheels are 20x10 with 4.5" backspacing and -24mm offset
