    I have a 2013 double cab tacoma and i want to do a 2 inch lift. What is the tallest tire i can fit? I dont necessarily want a fat tire that sticks out beyond the fender....but i do want the tire to fill up the wheel well nicely.

    I did a search, but it seems like the search feature for the app sucks.

    If u guys could post pics of your trucks with a 2 in lift and info on the tires you have that would be great. Thanks for the help. Love the forum.

    You can probably fit a 275 70 17 with billies at 1.75 and trimming. Im running 265 70 17 and I bet I could go bigger. Only downside is not many tires to choose from in that size.

    OME 884 springs with Bilstein 5100s @ 0 for exactly 2" of lift. Tire size is 265/70R17. Had to eventually remove the front mudflaps and do some plastic trimming to eliminate rubbing. Most of the rubbing was probably due to the aftermarket wheels I have with 4.5 backspacing.

    im wondering the same question as OP. I have the 2 in lift already and am still running the tires I had when there was no lift. 265/70/17 and there was no rubbing at all. I would like to go with a taller tire but unsure of how tall I can go. I see some people have a 75? does anyone have an 80? or do they even make those?
