    black out headlights bilstein 5100s toytec 2" aal procomp 7089 nitto terra grapler 285/70/17
    hello guys, i'm so torn about getting a lift and tires on my taco..i have a white 2011 double cab short bed and i've decided to go bilstein 5100's all around, I just bought my pro comp 7089 17's wheels. Now i'm not sure what tire and how high to take it. for sure I don't want to go past 3" my taco isn't a 4x4 and wont be doing much off roading but I would like a slightly aggressive look. i'm not sure if I should go with 265-70-17s or 285-70-17s i know if i go with the 285's i would need atleast a 3" lift, whereas if i go 265 i can set the bilstein to 1.75. I would like to get other thoughts on this. I would like a similar setup to this truck:

    Not sure what lift is on that truck, but to answer your question that has been asked x 1000000000 a 265 tire will fit w/ zero lift and will not rub, period. A 285 tire will rub even w/ the bilstein set at 2.5", it's just a matter of how much will it rub. I don't know what the backspacing is on the wheel's you bought, but the further you go from 0 backspacing the more it will rub. Also consider that every 285 tire is not the same size as another brand, for example, a Nike 10.5" shoe could be bigger than Addidas 10.5 etc.

    For 33" tire.
    Number 1: remove the mud flaps on the front
    Number 2: Consider chopping the body mount if it rubs too much (most people don't do this mod as it's not completely necessary)
    Number 3: Hack away at your inner fenders with a razor blade
    If you're not gonna wheel the truck past what a honda civic could do, then stick w/ a popular all terrain 265 tire (BFG, Falken, Hankook, Nitto, Firestone) to save money and MPG.

    Want a really aggressive look? Bilstein 2.5, add a leaf, 285 tire.

    It was a one off truck that showed up at the San Diego auto show, I believe it toured around LA as well

    OP i go with the 285s..... and what tires are you going with? You will have to adjust them to 2.75 i would recommend you to get new UCA's if you run 285s.

    You don't necessarily need UCA's, all depends on how much the wheel off sets the tire away from UCA.

    true, but he never said the back spacing on his wheel. I know the guys running the 5100s higher than 2" say the ride is horrible and new UCA's will fix the problem not just fixing the UCA's rubbing problem.

    Word, OP has not specified this fact. The ride past 2" is like a cadillac, they're smokin crack when they say this blasphemy! :D my camburg UCA's didn't do anything except dial in extra caster and wheel travel.

    I say try the tire first and see how it does. Test fit.

    True that, im about to run a set of 5100s myself (maybe) or OEM 3"... I got the tires (285s) i just need money for the Lift and wheel spacers because im going with stock wheels ATM.

    The BFG All Terrains are one of the best on/off road tires on the market IMO. They give good traction off road, good ride quality on and off road, and they wear very well on the pavement. They are also very quiet for an all terrain tire. The only down side to these tires is you pay alot more for the name. Thats just my two sense...everyone will have their own opinion.

    nice choice of wheels btw.. have you decided if you are going with all terrains or mud tires? With 265s you should be good even on stock height but you might be a bit shy of the slight aggressive look unless you get a taller aspect ratio like 75 and a 3" lift

    i'm still not sure about 285/265 I think for more aggressive the 285 is the choice, perhaps just all terrain so it doesn't hurt the gas mileage so much and also since i'm not going to do any wheeling
