    I have a 09 sport double cab and i am going to put a 3'' Tough Country suspension lift on it. Does anyone know the biggest A/T tire I can put on it? A slight rub is ok. "Slight"

    285's will fit if you do a little trimming.

    This is mine on 295s and I had to do a decent amount of trimming...

    265/75/16s are the biggest your stock wheels will allow...there not backspaced enough for 285s. You'd have to run wheel spacers or buy different wheels with a different backspacing to fit anything bigger. Most of the guys with 3" lifts are rockin 285/75/16s or like Andy ^^^ 295s. Theres even some dudes runnin 305s but major trimming is evolved with those I heard :cool:

    I haven't heard much good things about em. Most guys do Toytec lifts, OME Lifts or Bilstein 5100s with a 3" coil of some sort with a 1.5 to 2" AAL :)
