    I lifted mine for better off road performance and not for bigger tires. I have a ToyTec Ultimate set about 2.5". I still run stock tire size, but could easily fit 285's if I wanted.

    This lift gives me considerably better approach and departure angles so I am less likely to drag front and rear bumpers. The meager 1/2" higher ride from 285's does not seem to be a big advantage to me and not worth the hit in gas mileage and speedometer error.

    Things with stuff, but nothing much
    285s actually put the speedo exactly correct. My speedo is spot on to GPS speed now.

    Must be a difference with speedo's. Mine is spot on with the 265's according to my Garmin 660.
