    can i run 33x12.5R15 with a toytec ultimate lift. I plan adjusting the coil over all the way out to 3.5" of lift, or do I need to do some fender trimming?

    To much to list...see sig for more...
    Ideally with the correct b/s wheels and offset...you want 4" of lift to clear 33's but 3" w/ some trimming and pinch weld mod should clear the rubbing but not at full lock.

    You'll be better off with 285-70-17. That's what I'm running on my setup. Don't crank them all the way out. The ride will be too rough. I just adjusted mine the other day and have about 3/4" left on the collars and have no problem, even at full flex with rubbing. There are some photos in my gallery of my setup.

    Is it the width of the tire or the height of the tire that is the issue....?

    most 15" wheels come in 3.75" backspace, so with the coilovers cranked up, the 33s will sit just right...

    most of the 17s out in the market dont have the right backspace for a 1st gen taco, and the tires won't be as affordable as 15s...

    plus the meat of a 33 on a 15 looks more proportionate than a 17 on the smaller body 1st gen...

    if planning to run the tires on the stock wheels, you will get rub on the stock UCA depending on how aggressive the sidewall is, and when aired down for wheeling... consider getting into a 1" wheel spacer...

    if running stock backspace wheels, the width can lead to rub on the stock UCA, especially when aired down for wheeling...

    if stock suspension, the height can lead to rubbing on the frame when the wheels are at full turn and during articulation...

    what if i put some bushwacker cut out flares on my truck do you think that would fix the problem of the tires rubbing?
