    I'm going to buy some rockstar wheels and i would like to know if I should go with 18" or 20"? Also what tire size? I'm also going to add a 3" with the bilstein 5100's. Should I buy front and rear shocks or should I buy the Front shocks and aal in the rear? Thanks!!!! Btw I have a 2005 Access cab PreRunner. White!!

    I say go with 18" wheels with roughly 33" tires.;) 20" rims will just cost you more and tires will about double in cost just cause they are 20"s. Now for the rear shocks, its not the shocks that will give you the lift, it will be the AAL's. I have 5100's in the rear w/2" AAL's. Oh and welcome to TW!!!

    Here are 18's with 32's. Biggest I could fit with my 1.75" lift. If you go up to 3", you could fit the 33's and it would look even better.

    Yeah I had the tires before the lift so I couldn't go 275/65 at that point.

    the bilsteins only go to 2.5" in the front. A 1.5" AAL should level you out nicely.

    You don't have to put the bilsteins in the back to get lift. I installed them just to upgrade my shocks.
