    Im looking to get a 4x4 tacoma. Is is possible to clear an 18x10 or a 20x10 wheel with 33x12.50s on possibly a level and small body lift. Is this possible? If not, I may go with an 18 or 20x9 with a deep offset (-12 or more)

    Do body lifts on the tacoma show to much frame? Thanks for yalls help!

    I'll answer in order of asked:

    Yes of course, but you are better off going with a 20x9 or an 18x9, there are far less issues.
    Depending on the height of the BL, yes, and IMO, it's fugly. A 1 or 1.5" BL isn't too bad looking, but after that it goes downhill. At the end of the day it's your truck so do what you want with it.

    Go too high with the body lift and things can get sketch with failures.

    if you just want your wheels to stick out, then get any wheel and add some wheel spacers. Thats what I did. 10,000 miles on the wheel and wheel spacers, and not a single problem.
