    Looking to put some black wheels and all purpose tire's on my gen 3. I'm putting a 2in lift on next week. LRM_EXPORT_20180430_121613.jpg

    Will a 2" lift even clear larger tires?

    Supposedly, our Turd gens ride 1” higher on the same suspension that’s under the 2nd gens. That’s supposedly why the 16-18’s are sold separately and most say 2-2.5” lift.

    Is there a question or just making a statement? I’m so confused.

    Do you want 16” wheels or keep the 17” stock wheels or go bigger like 18” 19” or 20”?

    You could do 285/70/17 on 17x8.5” 0 offset. Get a good alignment it will rub a little at full lock when you hit a bump. Like turning into a driveway.
    You could heat and mold the plastic where it rubs. If you off road your cab mount will hit from time to time and CMC would resolve that issue.
    If you don’t want that big and rubbing and modifying I’d get 275/70/17’s on 17x8” if you like the 0 offset you could stay with that you could go as low as -6 for a little wider stance or as close to stock as +14 which would be the TRD pro Tacoma wheels or the like. The 4Runner pro wheels are +4 offset.
    Or you can keep your stock wheels and put 265/70/17 on.

    This may be a dumb thing but, has anyone removed the fender flares to make the tires look a little more flush? Vs spacers or wider wheels. Factory wheels already have a decent offset

    Factory wheels have a +30 on sports and a +25 on the off-roads they sit in from 0 which would be flush with the hub.

    Bilstin 1500...not sure of the offset. Had to take of the front mudflaps because they were rubbing

    Sorry, Bilstein 5100. Think it cost me about $800
