    Howzit All,
    I'm planning on leveling my 2012 4x4 with bilsteins all around. I like the look of the stock 17" wheels that came with the TRD sport package. I was planning on running wheel spacers so I could put larger tires than it originally has (265/65/17). Can anyone tell me whats the largest tire that can go on the stock wheels 17"x9" and not rub. I want wider and taller tires.

    Was planning on putting 275/70-17 on stock wheel with wheel spacer after leveling the front. Let me know if this will work....

    Well - I know it's been a month, but I just put Cooper Discoverer AT3 in the 275 size on stock 17" TRD Sport wheels. Looks great - should work just fine. Some light rubbing on my UCAs at full lock but I've read of others with different brand tires that did not rub at all. Wheel spacer might be needed depending on which tire is chosen as you mentioned.
