    i have the 2006 trd sport and im getting ready to lift it and put new wheels and tires on it. im going to get the roughcountry 3in lift. i was wondering if you guys knew if the 16in ion wheels and the 285/75/16 tires i was planning on getting would all work together?
    im knew to all of this so im kinda clueless when it comes to lifts and things like that. i have kinda jus been looking this up as i go but i can never get a forsure answer on everything

    depends on the backspacing of the wheels. 285's are gonna rub if you offroad too

    Depends on the kit. Is it a spacer lift? Or is it new shocks and an add-a-leaf. Are you using stock wheels?

    Spacers lifts are ok for on-road use and light off-road use. If you plan on off-roading a lot you need to go with 5100's and an add-a-leaf kit. If you are using stock wheels and 285's you will rub the upper control arm, so you either need new wheels or wheel spacers.
