    i currently have the stock 17x65x265 tires and i want to upgrade to the BF goodrich all terrains and possibly a slight lift so they dont rub. Does anybody know the most common tire size upgrade and lift that tacoma pre runner owners get? also if im getting 340 miles on a 17 gallon tank what can i expect my mpg to be when i get bigger tires/lift?

    Did you do an engine swap? How do you have 17" wheels on a Prerunner? Did you swap for Sport wheels?

    Vehicle:
    2008 double cab, 4X4, V-6, TRD. Super White.
    OME 885 coils & front shocks, with TT top plate, Total Chaos UCA, Rear OME extended shocks, Rear TSB, Rear Toytec AAL, trimmed the saber-tooth-tiger-long-ass mud flaps. 17" XD Revolver rims, 265/75/17 BFG AT KO's. Ripped out the crappy FM Modulator & installed a PA-15-toy interface. OEM bed matt.
    Just putting on my 3" lift, my MPG was roughly the same for two weeks. Installing 265/75/17 tires & new rims added 22lbs per wheel. My MPG dropped 2 MPG (after factoring in more diameter).

    On the highway if I push it, I can go about 350 miles (20 gal tank) with a gallon to spare.

    I know that. He did not have that listed in his info when I posted.

    I still want to know what 4.6L is in your truck.
