    What's up, folks! New to Tacoma World after buying my 2014 2wd Access Cab. The baby-Dunlops/15 in's had to go a week later and now I'm fully starting to enjoy the truck after just two weeks of ownership. Thanks to all the tips on here before making the purchase, I was able to do some quick mods to put a smile on my face as I walk up to my truck every morning!

    As a Florida-boy and now Washington, DC resident, I spend a lot time on the highway and riding back in forth East-coast race tracks with my Yamaha R6 race bike. Looking forward to waisting more money on great additions.

    Tires & Wheels:
    Platinum Allure 252 18x8 5x120 +35mm Gloss Black w/ Milled Accents & Clear-Coat
    235/60/18 Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus XL (No cutting mod needed and good clearance all around)

    Posting my before and after flicks for the thread. Straight up noob and I wanna say thanks to the forum and posted pics with spec details. Helps to point viewers like myself in a better direction.
    2014 Toyota Tacoma base model
    Fat bobs lift kit - Front / back with longer leaf spring
    Sits just as high as my 1990 Toyota SR5 pick up 4x4 that I just sold
    Pacer steelies: 15x8 4.5 BS with 31" BFGoodrich KO2 - I got some slight rubbage going on, not at full lock but at a point before full lock, looking into it once this workday is over. Will probably follow black box removal.

    Hey guys,

    I'm heading out in a bit to pick up my first Tacoma later this morning and I am stoked! Here is a pic from the dealership:

    IQ_800-1.jpg

    It is a '12 base 2WD 4cyl. automatic trans. I need some input from you guys regarding wheel and tire upgrades since I'd like to place the order this coming Monday.

    I've already decided to get the 18" Toyota X-runner wheels. I'm now facing a dilemma with choosing tires. I like what TW member fender104 did with his:
    2012-05-25_16-53-31_27.jpg

    Ideally, that's what I'd like to do, with Yoko Geolander A/T-S 265/65/18s. However, a friend of mine told me yesterday that he owned a 2WD Tacoma in the early 90s and put AT tires on in ("very wide tires" as he described it) and hydroplaned from a puddle of standing water while on the interstate. He said he would not recommend wider/AT tires on this model. I would of course want to avoid anything like that since I travel about an hour on the interstate every other weekend.

    Any thoughts on that or have you guys had a similar experience?

    My other option for tires is the Yoko Geolander G055 255/55/18s, such as the ones TW member schiz94 put on his:

    IMG_011410.jpg


    Baton Rouge roads are ridden with potholes and the parts of the city that I am forced to drive in/commute flood after a small shower, so I was trying to get something that would give me an advantage w/ potholes and flooded roads while at the same time beef up the look of the truck without making any more major mods, creating a hazardous driving situation, or creating future problems or stress on the engine/drivetrain. I don't care about doing a lift unless I would be forced to do so with wanting the AT tires. I will do a black box mod if necessary.

    So in summary, by upgrading to the AT tires described above, would I be faced with:

    1. Re-gearing the automatic transmission in any way?
    2. Any other engine/drivetrain dynamics to be concerned about?
    3. A necessary lift or suspension mod?
    4. Unsafe dynamics while driving on the interstate?

    Thanks again to fender104 and schiz94 for the inspiration!

    Lorenzo

    Hello All,

    First time Toyota owner here; 2005 SR5 Access Cab Auto/2.7. I inherited the truck from my father a little over a year ago bone stock with only 31k miles on it. I needed something to tow my motorcycles to the track so the build began. I still have a number of things to do but I’m pleased with the results so far.

    Huge thanks to all that have posted info on this site. Right, wrong or indifferent it’s nice to see product reviews as well as different points of view. And a special thanks to Tooter for all the Dyno work!!!

    Hello Petey,

    Thank you and more mods are definitely in the future. Aux. Trans Cooler goes in tomorrow and then I focus primarily on the ride (bushings, shocks, thicker front sway?)

    New gearing would be nice for the hills but that will be towards the end of the upgrades. Visually I’d like to get it set up with fogs, driving lights and maybe light for the back of the cargo basket but the other stuff is more important for now.

    Photo-bomb!

    I've now got it to where i largely want it - for now. When the rubber wears out in a year or two, i'm looking at replacing the 225/75/R16 tires with a higher profile 235/85R16 tire and am going to kick the rims out for a wider track with a spacer setup, and i've got a PrInSu Accesscab roof rack inbound at present. However, beyond those additional major changes, this base truck is pretty much hitting the sweet spot as to where i wanted to go with it as a ruggedized commuter during the week, and a recreational toy-hauler for the weekend.

    Major external parts list/mods, as follows:

    RTX Arsenic 16x7 +40 offset aftermarket rims - used - kijiji.ca
    225/75R16 Goodyear Wrangler ST tires - used - kijiji.ca
    ARB Deluxe front bumper - new - 4wheelparts.ca
    Fab Fours rear bumper - new - 4wheelparts.ca
    Weathertech in-channel window visors - new - 4wheelparts.ca
    Extang Trifold Solid Cover - used - kijiji.ca
    ReadyLift SST 2.75/1.75" spacer/AAL lift kit
    Bilstein 4600 front struts/5100 rear shocks
