    To add, those tires are the biggest you can go with a stock suspension.

    I have a 2010 Tacoma TRD sport with a 2.5 coil spacer in the front and a 2 inch block in the back.....I am trying to decide between 285/75r17s that are 33.8" and 285/70r17s that are 32.7"...i know the 32.7s will work, can i fit the 33.8s? the tires im going to buy are KM2s, its fine if I have to take off the mud flaps, I just want it too look bad ass.

    Welcome to TW!! Just got me some 265/75/16s a little over a week ago and they made a world of difference in appearance and functionality. Keep us posted on how yours works out. I got Firestone Destination A/Ts and couldn't be more pleased. No off-roading for me but these would do pretty well in minor to moderate instances. I got mine for trails and the snow mostly.

    Here is a link to my before and after pics: Destination A/Ts
