PostSubject: Tires on Stock Rims   1/7/2010, 12:20 pm

Hi everyone, first post here (still need to get some decent pics for the noob forum) but I need some professional advice.

Found someone who's wanting to trade stock TRD rims with 285/75/R18's with minimal usage for stock TRD rims and tires which I have. My question to you guys is I have a 08 DC TRD edition with stock lift, will these fit until I can get a leveling kit on there? Hopefully no more then a month or so but this deal looks too good to pass up if I can make it work.


Thanks for the help.

Kyle.... welcome to the site.

these tires measure 34.8"... they WILL rub.. you will need a 2.5-3 level kit in front for them to fit. your truck CAN fit 33" tires without a level.

Thanks guys, Hmmmmm...... Guess I need to look at those 5100's or SOMETHING here sooner then later if I want to do this. Any recommendations for leveling kits? Have been really thinking about the 5100's but still undecided.

I have the 5100s on since December 23rd and they ride comfortably with the lift. It's not the exact same ride quality as OEM but a good alternative if you're trying to save a little money. But, there are quite a few reasonable leveling kits less than $300 that will also help with the forward rake that annoys a lot of people....and get those tires you want too. Check out TCTundra's build log..he's got a fairly priced 3/1 leveling kit.

me and TRDDunn have the Fat Bobs Garage 3/1 kit... of course, my truck in a 1gen Tundra.

The kits are fairly well made and very resonable in price. I paid only $159 for the front spaccers AND a 1" add-a-leaf spring for the rear

if you want some a bit more rugged then check out the Low Range Offroad and Truxx kits. they usually run about $300-$350 for a set.

I have the readylift 3/1 and it rides just like the factory ride I like like it you might also check into the truxx kit the main thing is all the kits are basically 1 of 2 designs

1st one goes on top of the strut mount and does not further compress the spring basically maintains the same ride quality

2nd goes below the strut mount this compress the spring. this gives you stiffer ride

it mainly just depends on what your looking for
