    So I finally pulled the trigger and ordered the Fat Bob's lift, and the Method Standard wheels (15x7). I dont do too much offroading, but i have been wanting to lift my 5 lugger for a long time. I've been lurking this site and have heard that BFG all terrain 31X10.5x15 will be sluggish with my stock gearing...But im worried if a go with a 30x9.5x15 they might look too small after the lift. I know its only an inch difference, but I want to do this right the first time. Any advice will help.
    Thanks - John

    Here she is all done. I am selling all 4 stock tacoma wheels with the BFG all terrain tires (size LT215/75 R15). The tires are slightly larger than stock, but ride much better. Wheels are in great condition with a little polishing they will look brand new. The tire have approx 25k miles on them but still have a lot of tread left. The rims come with the stock tire pressure sensors which are programmed for the 2009 2wd tacoma. I'm trying to sell as a package for $650 OBO PM me if interested I'm in SoCal.

    I ended up going with the 30x9.5x15 and I'm so glad I did! Rides great with the longer AAL and new shock. Little power loss but intake and exhaust will come next

    Looks great! Now I know my next tire size (30x9.5x15).

    Why not just go up to the 31's? Didn't need the lift if you just wanted to move up to 30's
