    Hello all! This is my first post.... I just recently bought an 07 4x4 base bsp access cab... and I had a question. I have been reading about peoples experiences with the 5100's and still havent really found the answer I am looking for. My truck factory sits 2 inches higher in the rear as the stock stance. I just bought some billies for the front to level it. Compared to other tacos Ive seen mine seems as if it sits a little higher than most. What I am really trying to get to is that I need tires in the next week or two and am looking to upgrade to the 265/75/16s or the 285/75/16's I would prefer the latter but im afraid I will have alot of rubbing. If I set the billies to level the back (1.75) and I really dont want to get stuck with too big of tires with crazy but I do like the look of the 285s.
    Btw truck came with eagle alloy 137s from what ive read i think 4.25 backspacing

    Any ideas or advice?

    A front strut lift like the 5100s doesn't actually allow you to fit larger tires, because the front wheel at full suspension compression is still at the same position (against the bumpstop). A lifted truck may clear larger tires on smooth roads, but the tire will start rubbing once the suspension starts articulating.
