    A 265/75/16 (32/10.50/16) will fit with no rubbing, a 285/75/16 (33/11.50/16) will fit, but you will have to trim or it will rub.

    Sorry to jump in.... Also have a question regarding a 3" lift. I'd like to do a 3" lift but don't want to spend too much on rims/tires. Presently I have 20's.... Can I use these rims? If so, what size tire would I need to buy. Really no off roading here, just a fun toy for my son and I. Thanks all.

    none
    I had 32"x11.50s on stock tacoma, they worked somewhat? But rubbed bad on turns on level road, a friend had the same truck with 3" lift, he said off road in turns he still had some rub on the front-back side fender well. Shop recommended some minor cutting away.

    I am running 32x11.50s on a 2.5 lift. I have had to do some trimming here and there but not bad. They are Kumho MTs and are pretty agressive so I think that may have led to some of the trimming. I am debating on going to an AT when I get some new shoes in the spring.

    I wouldn't say a lot but my truck is definitely not afraid of getting dirty. It has had it's supension stretched pretty good at an offroad park or 2 though. Mostly trails though.

    I would like to step-up to some coilovers eventually.
