    I will preface this with, i have research this for about 2 hours so i am just going to ask. I am looking to install the Bilstein Adjustable lift kit with 5100 shocks from toytec and want to keep the offroad wheels, like the look. I was wondering what size tire could I run without needing spacers or new wheels. basically looking for taller tires with the same width.

    1. install your lift.

    2. go to the fucking tire shop and have some fitted.

    The Bilstein lift gives you right under 3" of lift. The absolute biggest tire you can run without trimming is around 33" tall, which is a 285/75/16 (wide tire) or a 255/85/16 (skinny tire), provided you have 16" wheels.

    Also, what do you mean by "off-road wheels"?

    I'm assuming the 16" wheels that come stock on a TRD Off Road Tacoma:

    The only way your wheels become a limiting factor is when you want to go wider, not taller. You shouldn't run 285s on a 7" wide wheel,(tho people do all the time) but if you just wanted height you could run 265/75/16 (~32" tall) or 255/85/16 (~33" tall). If you want 285s you should upgrade to an 8" or wider wheel.

    Edit: lol wow I just realized this is an ancient thread. :laughing:

    I've got the Bilstein lift an I run 265/75/16's and have no complaints. Although, when it's time to upgrade tires, I'm getting a 33". I have 16x8.5" wheels.
