    Hey guys so i recently joined the forum and thought id share pics of my 18x9 method racing wheels with 325/60/18 Mickey thompson tires on my 07 Tacoma with stock lift.

    Many people on here doubt this setup and i will say it would be very stressfull to keep this. The tires rub the lower control arm mount if u turn to hard.. But overall after some cutting i am DD the truck.


    Here are some PICS

    Dont provide a picture of turning or flexing at all. That would prove your point :rolleyes: I am guessing you can hardly hit a speed bump without rubbing?

    i'd be curious to see it even turn, let alone a u-turn...or show any flex...or how much it rubs the uca...

    that's a lot of rubber in a space with not much room

    well sorry if its not 100% a 35 but its HUGE, I already ordered my 3" lift but just wanted to rock them and see if it would clear before hand.. I can get 3/4 full turn with the cutting i did.

    Funny I put 265/70 17 on my truck this weekend and I rub, hit the control arms too, did some cutting though. Will be picking up 5100's for the front.

    I can't imagine trying to turn in that thing though.
