    I've ordered a 2.75 inch front. 1.5 inch rear, tension adjustable lift/leveling kit. I want some narrow tires that are tall enough to look good in the wheel well. It is a 2007 dbl cab lwb taco. It is my daily driver. 80 percent hiway rest off road. Any experienced advice?

    enough to get me there
    If you like tall and narrow. You could go 255/85-16. If you don't off-road much, and are concerned with mpg, stick to an all terrain tire in a 265/75-16. It will look good and be flushed inside your wheel well.

    Thanks for the quick replies. I forgot to mention. I want to keep my stock 2007 rims which are 17 inch. I'd suppose the same tire sizes come in 17". Again, thanks any input is appreciated.

    Okay, thanks again for the info. I have used the tire calculator. It helped a lot. I have 17" wheels. I like the narrowness of the 245 and 255's, i'd even go with 265's but am having trouble finding tires. This is my daily driver so i;d like all terrain tires. I am also buying spacers to set the narrow wheels out a bit. where do you guys find tires? I am having trouble with the 75 to 85 widths with a 17 inch rim. Might you also know if there are pics of someone with a 3 inch lift and narrow all terrain tires?

    Thanks
