    Had a new set of 265/75/16 Michelin MS2's installed today. With the Bilsteins set @ zero the ride is exactly what I hoped it would be.... great. Huge improvement over the stock set up. Well worth the time and $$$. Could have bought pretty much whatever tires I wanted. After much research, I chose the MS2's. I have owned them before and they are a great riding tire. I don't off road much so I decided to keep it real. Most of all, I did not want the issues of a constantly balancing much larger agressive tires, higher lift possible vibs issues, power loss, gas mileage reduced etc. Discount tire treated me right, paid me $200.00 for the (4) oem dunflops.

    Thought I would post incase anyone was interested in what this size tire looks like on this suspension set up. Really what Toyota should be using for OEM. The dunflops had pretty bad reviews on TireRack.com.

    Thanks for the compliment. 1/4" high in the nose (according to my level) But I can live with it.

    I would rate this new set up as a 10. I am very very happy with it. I would not change a thing. The Bilsteins and Eibach coils really make a huge difference.

    Leaving the Bilsteins fronts set at zero is probably why the ride is excellent. No issues with vibs or alignment.

    The toyota tech who did the install said if he had to do it over again he would have not gone over a 2" lift with his own truck. He has a 6" lift and I got the feeling was not happy about what he has for the $$$ laid out. To each his own I say. Whatever makes one happy.

    Did you TSB the rear or doing anything else to the back end?
