    Gonna add 2” to the front and 1.5” to the rear of my 2019 TRD. What is the largest tire I can put on with 16” wheels?

    If you trim the fenders and stack enough spacers you are only limited by your imagination.

    A friend told me he read a response where someone raised a 3rd gen 2” up front and 1.5 in the rear and fit 285 75 16. Minor modification inside the fender well.

    FWIW You could do 255/85/16 or 265/75/16 Tire on a 16x8 wheel 0 offset or whatever else works. You’ll be dialed off-roading and every day driving. Flex out no rub and keep weight down as well :rasta:

    I have about the same lift height as you. I run 265/75R16 KO2s on 16x8 -12 wheels with no rubbing. You may be able to fit a 275. A 285 would be sketchy

    265s for the win. No issues, no loss of power, no decrease in mpg, no trimming, able to run factory mud guards, no re-gear, no trimming, no cutting the fenders, no recalibration, no cab chop mounts needing cutting, no hammering the pinch welds, no excessive wear on suspension and brakes. Its just a win win for a perfectly fit tire or do all that for an inch more. Hell I just talked myself out of 285s again! As much as I want the 285s and they look great I'm sticking with 265s and its a great size for a 2/1 lift.

    265/75/16 is the most common, without issues. And they look great!
    255/85/16 is the biggest that will fit without cutting.

    It came stock with 265 70 r16s. I think I can increase a bit after the 2” lift.

    Lift doesn’t let you run a bigger tire. Wheel placement does (particularly when you are talking about a bigger and WIDER tire). This is why you can run a 255/85/16 and not rub when flexing while you likely will with a 285/75/16. If you don’t want to change your UCAs or do a CMC, run 255 or 265s. You can do the 265/75/16 and get an extra .5” of axle clearance vs stock or do the 255s and get a bit over an inch of added clearance.

    Orrrrr… full send and get out the hammer and knife for 285s and wider .
