    quick Question,

    I have an 09 DC Sport.

    If I keep my stock wheels and upgrade my UCA's to TC UCA's, how wide of a tire might I be able to go with. I think, as of right now (completely stock) I can only get 265/70R17 to fit.

    Would these new UCA's allow me to go wider (if so, what size) and have no rubbing issues? Anyone out there done this yet?

    Thanks!

    Curious: do aftermarket UCA's have an undesired effect on caster with stock suspension?

    OP, Spidertraxx hub-centric wheel spacers will also give you more space for wider tires for about $200 front and back, easy install.

    Aftermarket UCA's have a positive 2 degree caster built into them. They are designed to correct your alignment after a lift. I do not know if you have enough adjustment to get the alignment correct when you do not have a lift. On the tacoma, there is one adjustment that changes caster and camber. You have to find a happy medium with it. If you went with Light Racing UCA's, they have thier own camber adjustment built into them (I am not sure if the others do or not). I would think that you would be able to get away with it, but I am not sure I would even worry about it. If you are only trying to go a little bigger in the tire size, I would just get a set of spidertrax spacers.
