    Well I recently just invested in a 2003 tacoma. Anyway I am installing a 3 inch lift kit but they say it works only for 32" tires. Should i Go for the 33's? If so what are the disadvantages? If any at all.



    Thanks!

    Well... I did, and I think they look better then the 32's I had before. I actually went with 285/75/r16, which is actually like just under 33's but close enough to be called 33's, I think they measure 32.85 or so. But I had slight rubbing with the stock wheels on the frame at full turn, and on the UCA. So If you do go 33's, I highly recomend new wheels with a less back spacing, I went with a 4-1/4" BS, which was perfect. I got no more rubbing. Oh... and you might have a slight change in MPG. But thats about it.

    Just an FYI, the way tires are mesured, they are rounded up. So, a tire that mesures 32.3" is considered a "33" and so on. :)

    all depends on the offset/backspace of the wheel you run
