    I have just bought an 09 TRD prerunner DC and have access to a FREE set of 285/70-17 hankook ATM's. My question is what do I need to make these tires fit? I know I'll need a lift but how much and will I need anything else like wheelspacers?

    Welcome to TW. This is among the most commonly asked questions on this site. You should poke around a bit on here, lots of good info. Also, we have a wheels and tires subforum specifically for wheel and tire related questions.

    Short answer: wheel spacers or aftermarket wheels with 4.5 BS, a 3" lift, and trimming.
