    I have a Daystar 2.5" Leveling Kit being installed on my 03 TRD, I have the stock rims and tires on, but want to upgrade to 285/65-18 rims and tires.
    Am i going to need to do any trimming, or put spacers behind the new rims?

    Trimming- Most likely some. Spacers- Depends on the new rims. I don't know what the sizes for no spacers are for the 1st Gens...
    Someone will be along...

    you can fit up to 265/70/r16 stock

    probably going up to 285 will require a little trimming on the fender flares but not much more than that. you may need to remove mud flaps too
