    Hi all,

    I plan to lift my 07 Taco Double-Cab with the Bilstein 5100's at 2.5 in the front and the Toytec AAL for TSB in the rear. I plan to use spidertrax wheel spacers with my lift setup as well. I will then most likely put 285/70/17 BFG A/T KOs on for non winter use. What I want to know is what I should get for dedicated winter tires that will look half decent with the lift and will work OK with a 285/70/17 spare tire if needed. I would like to go narrower for better winter traction and to give more room for putting on chains. I do like my TRD sport 17" rims so I may use those with the winter tires as opposed to steelies. Ideas for sizes and/or brand (I live in Vancouver, BC but often go to Whistler and farther north in the winter) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Thanks for the reply. Yeah I think it might be a good idea to go with different rims with the winters although I don't want to lose the TPMS if possible. What did you do about your spare tire? I'm guessing that a different size tire can't be good for the drivetrain but I don't know how big of deal it would be if it was only for a relatively short term until getting the flat repaired.
