Searched a bit but want to be clear so I don't waste $$..

I want to raise my truck 3" and install rims/tires..

Toytec 3" lift is about $300 - Does that include front and rear or just one?

TireRack - I have a wholesale account with them and wondering what size max rims/tires I can get without them rubbing the inside wheel well..


Thanks in advance! :thumbsup:

Wonder why it is that some guys just can't give good advice, instead they always say "use the search" if everyone used the search instead of asking questions, this site would have been dead a long time ago.
yeah it may seem rude but don't take it personally. When the same types of questions have been asked and answered over and over again.......it gets old for some people. Plus it prevents things from being organized when searching. :chug:

Agreed, but the best option for people who feel the urge to issue the "use the search" comment is to just say nothing. Let a more motivated member or Moderator offer an answer instead. I've seen way too many threads descend into hostile name calling because of this issue. 'Nuff said....

The following toytec lift:

http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=113&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

Includes front spacers and rear add-a-leaf.

The really short answer is -- the harder you wheel it, the less likely you're likely to be happy with spacers. That being said - more spacer lifts are sold than any other kind, and many people are happy with them.

If you're not wheeling it hard, you should be able to run 285/75R16 (depending on tire, offset, backspacing) after only trimming plastic. The bigger the negative offset, the more you'll have to cut. But at positive offset, you're likely to hit the upper control arms and/or have wheel interference against the caliper.

If you're wheeling it hard , expect to trim, grind, and cover the cab body mount (that's a small piece of the frame) at 285/75R16.

That's the summary of the consensus opionion all over this and other boards. Minority opnions can be found. Some folks claim to run 285/75R16 with no rubbing, other say they've had to remove their mudflaps and trim plastic even at 265/75R16.

If you want to keep stock mudflaps, best answer is to run stock tire size.

My only comment is to be careful on the recommendation of a 285 tire, especially when the OP has made it clear that he doesn't want any rubbing. 285's will more likely than not rub the cab mount even after removing the mudflap.

The biggest you can go, without any rubbing is a 265/75/16 or 265/70/17. As long as the rim has no negative offset.

Because when the original poster says he has indeed searched, but still hasn't found the answer on a question that has been answered literally over 1000 times... it's a little obvious he hasn't searched enough or at all.

Why lie to us? Just man up and say, I didn't really search.

^Enough...You have made it very clear that you think the OP didn't search...

BUT...

The search function on this forum is not the most user friendly search engine on the planet. I have searched for certain topics that I know there has been a thread discussing them, only to spend hours trying to find them and ultimately to not be able to find the thread due to the crappy search engine.

SO...

The OP more than likely did search, and like many others including me, eventually gave up trying to find the answer due to the cheesy less than adequate search engine.

ditto. plus when you search something about lift kits, you get 100 hits of ppl saying "search the forum" before you actually find any useful info...

lol

I did search... Would have been nice to just post a link to one of the original threads that contained the info rather than complain that I didn't search... I know forums but I don't know this one yet, give me time and I'll know where everything is...
