    Getting ready to put on Toytec Ultimate Lift Kit with UCA's and AAL's for 3 " lift on '05 Tacoma TRD Sport 4DLB 4WD.

    Heres the Wheel/Tire Combo I'm looking at now:

    • 16 X 8 Ultra Drifters with 4.88" Backspacing and 10mm offset
    • BF Goodrich Rugged Terrain 285/75/16
    [​IMG]
    Will this work without cutting wheel wells, mudflaps, or any need for additional spacers???

    Have you confirmed that the ultras clear the brake caliper? Many 16" rims do not.

    A lot the 4.88" bs is a little more than ideal and Will require more trimming.

    Haven't confirmed that the wheels will clear. I was going from the info from here on TW and on Toytec for backspacing and offsets to pick a wheel that had the specs to fit.....I was ordering the wheels on-line from TireRack....wouldn't want to order if they won't work....never knew there was so much to get the right wheel/tire combo!!

    I have 17" wheels with 4.5" backspace and 265/70 17 tires, I needed to get 1.25" spacers to avoid rubbing on my calipers, this led to extensive trimming of my fenders and I am experiencing some slight cab mount rub, I am installing 5100s to avoid all rubbing.

    Be careful with your wheel/tire choice if you want to avoid having to do further mods due to rubbing.

    i have 275/70/18 toyo tires with the toytec ulti kit but not the control arms and i had to lose the front flaps and do minor trimming, i do have rubbing on tight turns. a wider tire but slightly shorter than i am running. i don't think you will get by without any extra work i.e: trimming, removing, adding. and there will more than likely still be rubbing

    OP , you could consider 255/85/16 if you want a 33" tire with no trimming .

    OP. , for reference, 4.5" bs minimizes the trimming needed, in general

    I don't mind trimming or even ditching the mud flaps (front and back?), or even a little wheel well plastic trimming. I just don't want a rub on the Spindles, Calipers, or Cab Mounts......

    I appreciate everyones input!

    Not sure if you are talking to me, but I do not have any lift installed right now. Getting 5100s which will give me a 1.75" lift in the front.

    KPT - The Tire Rack software matched the wheel to the truck....should that mean the wheels would clear the calipers?

    The voices are talking to me again........just kidding......

    Yeah it's a tight fit, trimmed almost all excessive plastic off the fenders today and took out most of the inner wheel well lining. I may replace the lining once I get my front lift installed.

    Like I said I have some slight cab mount rub when cutting the wheel in reverse and if I make a tight U-turn, definitely want to do away with this as I am hoping to start taking my truck off-road.

    In my experience that much offset and that size tire will almost certainly require a cab mount chop and quite a bit of other trimming even with a 3" lift. That is if you want to go off road at all. Stick to a wheel that is closer to stock or like OZ said go 255/85 r16. I know I wish I had.

    Shame about all the work , you could easily clear 265/70/17 on stock alloys

    Yeah this is true but my stock alloys where a mess, see below as an example. Plus I enjoy doing minor work on my truck, I haven't had it long but it has become a hobby of mine. Plus it is nice having a vehicle that is cheap to mod, I had BMW before and replacing my shift boot and e-brake boot was more expensive than the rims I bought for my tacoma.

    My alloys were exactly the same , the dealer replaced them with a week left in my warranty .

    Yeah I bought my truck used, it is CPO'd though, if I wanted stock wheels I would have pushed for the dealer to replace them but I knew I would go after market. Plus I sold and old set of wheels I had from my previous car that payed for my new wheels so it was kind of a wash, so to speak.

    Either way I am very happy with my setup now, will be even happier once I get my front shocks installed. Also, I may attempt to refinish the old stock wheels, will be another little project for myself to tackle, will have to wait until this spring to do it though.

    Ain't that the truth, I am coming from an E46 M3... Anything you buy for the taco is twice as cheap than a single oem part from the M.

    Yup, I had an e46 325I, so anything I did was probably a lot cheaper than your M3. I spent a lot of time on e46fanatics.com, but never got too into modding due to costs. My ride below. Sorry about the semi thread jack OP.
