    i ran with my stock stuff for almost 6 months it doesnt look bad because the tacomas sit pretty low stock! Mine was an offroad and came with the 265/70/16 but the 245s come on other ones might look smaller. Sorry no pictures i dont know what i was thinking!

    I have a 3 inch rough country leveling lift

    Go 285 or 33. They look epic with a 3 lift.

    I have 285/75/16 and all I had to do was trim the plastic splash guard in the front fenders. I do not rub at all. You also have to get new wheels with a smaller backspacing than stock. If I remember right, you have to have a wheel with a backspacing of 4". You may be able to get away with 4.5", but I am not sure on that.
