    well after lifting my 5 lug tacoma, i want to throw on 18 inch wheels and put 31 inch tires on that. has anyone ever done such a thing to their 5 lug? i want to know if it will have enough power and if i will lose MPG. i just want to know if it would be a great thing to do. thank you.

    you'll have enough power, but you'll definitely lose MPG because now you're engine is forced to move bigger rims and tires
