    I tried searching through the threads, but everything I'm reading about says that people have the 3" body lift.

    I'm doing the 3" leveling kit on my 2010 DC TRD Sport so the front end only will be lifted approx. 3". I have the stock TRD Sport rims on the truck now, but I'm looking around to see what I can get.

    What's the largest tire/rim size I can get for it without having to trim anything and avoiding rubbing.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think you read wrong because everyone (most any way) has a 3" suspension lift.

    i just put a 3 in leveling kit on my taco with km2 and it looks great, however i do have slight rubbing on the upper control arms, having to install 1 and half inch spacers to solve it. my tires are 285/75/16

    Whoa! Slight rubbing and 1.5" spacers don't equate. Maybe 1/4" spacers, but 1.5"...?

    Does somebody know if 18" or 20" XD Spy wheels can fit in a 07 Prerunner Tacoma with a 2.5 leveling kit installed in front and which tire size needs to get?

    Yes, they will fit, but I would personally recommend the 18's. 20's seem to much for me. The Spy's were my 2nd choice. Looks great. I would also look hard at the 8.5" instead of the 9". You'll like the .5" xtra clearance in the well when turning. Fact, you may not even have to trim. I have a 9" now and if I only had about 1/4" I wouldn't have had to trim any!!

    I think your tacoma looks awesome. What did you do to lift it, or do you have a leveling kit and also how many inches is the lift kit or leveling kit? Can you tell me what size tires and wheels you have and what brand they are? Do you have any rubbing issues?
