    Welcome. Lose the body lift get 16/8" wheels black. And do a 285/75/16 tire setup. That will look the best. Don't do body lifts they look bad and they are week not even a 1" body lift.

    Thanks a lot

    Since the rims will be one inch bigger and tires also will they rub against anything

    You could fit up to 35's with a little trimming with 6" but then you would NEED to regear. Gearing isnt cheap. Although would be cheaper with a prerunner you only need rear gears.

    Get the proper Backspacing to eliminate rubbing on the frame/ UCA

    My advice, keep the 15'' rims dude. Tires are cheaper for them and you can deflate the tires alot without hitting the rim most likely.

    and i agree with the above statement. Get ride of the body lift and get 33'' tires. You'll be more then pleased im sure

    The whole reason I got 16" rims is because there is a bigger variety of tire sizes. To me, 10.5" were to skinny, and 12.5" were too wide. With 16" rims, 285s are 11.2" wide and 285/75s are almost 33s (32.8").

    Moto Metal 951's in black, 16x8" with 4.5" BS. I have a 99 PreRunner, so they would fit yours too.
