    Level kit, and rancho coil over shocks.
    I'm looking to put knew tires on my 2002 ext cab tacoma just don't know how big of tires I can fit under it. I have a leveling kit on it and would like to go 33's but I'm not sure they will fit with out some cutting. Anyone know how big of tires I can fit under it without cutting it? Also Pictures of your truck with tires and rims would be sweet. Thanks for the help.

    tacoma-king... is your truck a 2WD?
    I have an 03 2WD PreRunner with the 2.7 & I am trying to figure out if I can mount a set of Michelin LTX M/S 31x10.5" 15's that I have, onto my stock 15" rims without any rubbing probs.

    Thanks
    Steve

    Some mods. Check build.
    Acording to some build threads, yes. 33's will fit on a 3" lift with alot of trimming. Maybe slight rub but Idk..? :confused:
    OP- the biggest size with no lift or trimming Im sure is 265/75.

    Just an FYI for anyone interested.
    The 31x10.5 15's fit, on stock wheels (for now at least) with no rubbing at all.

    32" tall tire will not come close to rubbing if it is on the right wheel. I have fj wheels on my 96 Tacoma and running 265/70/17 (31.8 tall) tires and have plenty of clearance with no lift. I easily clear the 285/70/17 as well but do not like the look of the 285/70/17 (32.8 tall)tire, too tall and skinny looking. I also would not recommend running running a 32 x 11.5 x 15 on the stock 15 x 7 tacoma wheel either. Minimum wheel size for that tire is 8" wide wheel your asking for the tire to pop off the wheel after hitting a pot hole or anything else in the road or doing any off roading. Aftermarket wheels also will determine how tall of tire you can run since they run different backspacking and offsets which will cause rubbing issues.
