    Hi, I am new to the truck and Tacoma World. This may seem like a basic question but here goes...

    1. Do tires wear faster on the front or the back (tacoma trd 4x4 double cab)? (reason I ask is that I got used winter tires with the truck and two are more used...want to try to get evened out...)

    2. I have just put a lift kit...1.5'' blocks in the back and 2'' billet in the front...do tires use funny with a lift kit...anything to check or be careful?

    Thanks for your help!!

    Thanks for the reply!!

    As for the question of tires wearing funny...I did get an alignment...just wondering if I should rotate more often or something else to watch out in order to max out tire life...thanks

    rotating tires is always a good idea. do it the same amount as when your truck isnt lifted!
