    I bought 285/75/r16 tires for 2009 tacoma 4x4 trd like and idiot without researching enough. l I put a two inch leveling kit in front. the tires are still rubbing on the inner frame when I turn com. 1.5 spacers don't fit due to hitting outer frame. Will these tires work if I put a 3 inch lift? 4in. Or am i screwed with this tire size?

    if its only hitting the frame you need to do the cab mount chop

    I had a 3" lift with 1.25" spacers with a 3" spacer up front, still rubbed my fenders. thats when i got the all pro fenders. solved most of the problem. Im sure you could get away with trimming because it really wasn't a lot after the 3" spacer.

    G scott,
    I believe you mean less backspacing. Less back space brings the mounting surface closer to the back of the rim.

    i'm assuming you're using the stock wheels. my buddy has a similar setup. he was able to clear everything with spacers and doing the cab mount chop. it's real simple to do. just find a buddy that can weld;).

    Talk to James at "The Truck Shop" on Miramar road about the cab mount chop. They did mine and it wasn't too expensive.
