    Winter is here, I have a 2017 SR5, would love to throw some bigger tires, better rain/snow etc. The only thing I tow is my small trailer with a 300lb dirt bike. I don't off road at all, I'd like to get an equal or better ride for the 4R if possible and still keep a reasonable MPG.

    Budget is middle tier I think but why spend more if I don't have to, this is my daily driver, and I'd like to keep it comfortable and useful for what I do. A big reason for the upgrade is admittedly visual, I was thinking some of 275s with a 2" lift and level all the way around.

    Ive read a lot but nothing stuck out, ive seen 6112s for the front and 5100s for the rear mentioned, but at $800 just for the parts, I just want to make sure I'm getting what I'm looking for.

    Any input, with links would be great. I'm in Portland Oregon (northwest)

    Thank you!

    Bilsteins and some better springs usually gonna be the only way to not break the bank and actually keep comfort. If you'e just looking to level the front, you could get away with bilstein shocks all around, and crank the front up a bit. If you're looking to lift it all around (which I assume since you want bigger tires) you'll need spacers or springs in the rear, and spacers won't make it ride well, lol.
