    I’ve had this Tacoma for about 2 years now. I really love it.

    It is gonna need some tires in about 8 months or so. The plan is to buy custom tires and wheels instead. I am a complete newbie to all this. All I have ever done with other vehicles is buy exact replacement tires. I have done some research on this forum to get some ideas. I think I have narrowed it down to 33” tires with 17” or 18” wheels and a 3” lift. I really don’t want to install a 6” lift. I like the lower stance. Here is a website called Readylift. They say their lift can accommodate 33” tires with some trimming. Is there a better lift product?

    How wide of tire can I get away with?

    Here is a picture that I found on the forum. When I first saw this picture, I thought, this is exactly the look I am going for!! I wish I could remember who the owner was, so I could ask him about his wheel and tire specs. I really love everything about the way this truck looks. The only changes I would make for my truck would be a satoshi grill and 3” lift instead of 6”.

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks in advance for your help!!!

    B5100's all around + Fabtech full length aal + diff. drop. Eagle Alloy 15" wheels with 32" BFG AT's. Custom built skid plate, Rhino lined bed, Westin bars, Husky liners.
    I think a 3" lift and a satoshi grill would look kick ass on your truck. Some biggers a/t tires and you would have a sick looking ride. Eventhough your truck is already great looking.

    I would try and stay away from spacers and blocks. Try toyteclifts.com and look around there. A bunch of us are running their products. FYI, I am running a 3" lift up front with 2" rear AAL's running on 285/65-18"s.
