    Hey guys,
    MODS

    2" Readylift - blocks in the back 2.75" spacers in the front
    265/75/16 Duratracs
    Ion alloy 16x8 Rims
    Satellite Radio
    Bilstein 5100 RCD extended travel rear shocks


    How my truck is currently

    I bought my truck on Nov 22/2012


    [​IMG]


    Traded my chrome emblem with Rab89's plasti dipped emblem.
    [​IMG]

    Installed my satellite radio.. because Toyota decided it wasn't a good idea to include satellite with the Tacoma's new visual audio setup.. cheapskates

    I swapped my Aux switch with a blank so I could use the extra space it gave me for mounting, and it also gave me a place to run all my wires without making a mess.

    Bought new wheels and Tires!

    Ion Alloy 179's 16x8
    Goodyear Duratrac 265/75/16

    I'm really happy with how this turned out.. my only concern is that when I lift my truck that my wheel won't stick out very far and I'll lose my new stance.

    I love the goodyears, I've actually had them before on an F150 and loved them, but I'll really be putting them thru the paces with this truck i think

    Do you have any other shots of the truck as it sits now with the wheels and tires? Im trying to get a mild lift but not to much. I bought some 885x coils off of another member but i dont know if 265 Duratracs are going to look tiny under a lift

    well that depends how much lift you want to get.. assuming you will just get a reg 1-3" I dont think that 265's will look small, my buddy Rab89 has 265's and a lift.. I forget how much.. I think 2.5 in the front 2 in the back. His tires dont look small.. If anything just make sure you get wheels too with some decent backspacing because when you buy a lift its gonna suck the wheels in a bit and you probably want to keep a good stance.

    I'll see if i can find some pics

    Wait... why don't you just buy 285's and wheels if you already have the lift?

    I ran 265's and a 2.5 front and 1.5 rear lift for a while.. The tire size went great with that lift.

    trimmed my front flaps today

    I might decide to go a bit shorter on these but I thought I would give this length a try at first and see if I still have dragging problems on local speedbumps
