    I don't think these forums have a wheel and tire setup thread. This must be remedied.

    If you're willing to contribute, post a pic of your wheels and tires. List your suspension setup, wheel width and offset, and tire size, and any other relevant (or otherwise) information you'd like to provide.

    This has been very helpful for me with other vehicles in deciding on wheels, tires, and suspension.

    This is a 2" Bilstein 5100 on FBG adjustable coilover level, 5100s in the rear @ stock heigh, Black Rhino Sidewinder 17x9 +12. Cooper AT3 265/70r17.

    I am considering getting 275/70r17 BFG K02s tomorrow. I run K02s on my Tundra and I really like them - but my wife primarily drives the 4r and I'm wondering how she'll feel about them..

    Anyway, what do you guys have? Anyone out there with K02s in 275/70r17 on a 5th gen? I'd love to see all your setups!

    I kept OEM coils for now but adjusted front to keep factory vehicle rake. It's approximately a little over 2" lift and was very affordable.

    I recall you saying in another thread that you had to cut your mudflaps and/or fender liners to run 285s on a 2" lift - do you get any rubbing at all now?

    I passed on the K02s today, have some Wildpeaks on order in 285/70r17. I would love to hear that everything is going to be ok.

    Love your truck.. best color.

    Yes I did cut the mudflaps. There is a weird square protrusion that took about 5 minutes with a box cutter to remove. I still rub the cab mount at full steering lock in reverse. It's a very slight rub that I plan on fixing with a set of JBA upper control arms.

    So is it safe to assume that it rubs on the CM because your caster is too negative?

    Absolutely. I had the same issue on my 2011 Tacoma. I know the rule of thumb is 3" and above requires aftermarket UCA's, but in my experience anything above 2" could surely use UCA's with more built in caster. Additionally, I feel like even with stock height suspension, the Tacomas, 4Runners and FJ's have too much bump steer and road wander which again is solved with aftermarket UCA's.

    I think there is already a lift thread so I'll just stick to basic lift info with tire and wheel specs here...

    SCS Stealth 6 (17x8.5, 4.30"BS, -10mm offest)
    285/70/17 Nitto Ridge Grappler (load range C)
    2.5" front/ 1.5" rear lift

    I found a great deal on a new set of K02s in 275/70r17. Picked them up and got them mounted and balanced today. HUGE improvement.

    A list of wheels that don't fit over the 4 runner brakes would also be helpful. I don't think that any of the 16" Toyota wheels will fit. Does anyone know if any of the 17" Tacoma wheels will fit?

    17" Tacoma wheels should fit just fine. My only concern would be the back spacing and offset. What Tacoma wheels are you specifically looking at?

    That would be great - I don't know if a comprehensive list exists, but by contributing to this thread we can gather the data and share experiences, save future owners a whole lot of time and headache. =]

    I've heard that the 3rd gen 17" Tacoma sport wheels won't fit over the 4runner front brake calipers. I haven't tried this myself so I'm not positive that this is correct.

    Just ordered some SCS Ray10s. Wondering if anyone knows anything about decent snow tires? I can't find anything larger than a 265/70r17 as far as snow tires go, but I figure those will look a little silly with a 2" lift. I was planning on keeping the stock rims for a tall and skinny snow tire. Any recommendations?

    I have 2" up front and they did look a little small. I'm pretty happy with the 275/70r17s I picked up. I think a good AT tires is totally adequate instead of a dedicated snow tire,but that's just my opinion.

    Post pics when you get your wheels - I love all the SCS stuff I've seen!

    JBTRD good looking rig. Where did you pick up those orange running lights in the grill? I've been searching for those.

    I actually have no idea, I transferred it from her old 4runner to her new one. I doubt she remembers, but I'll ask.

    Added 1.25" Spidertrax today which essentially makes my offset -19.75. I get some rubbing on the front bumper at wheel lock in reverse, and when turning while moving forward and the springs compress.

    Considering a CMC, or possibly just changing my wheel/tire setup to get me closer to -12.

    Anyone know how big you can go on 4th gen stock wheels. I have a 2004 SR5 with 17" wheels. Has 265's now. Was looking to jump up after lift/level, but didn't know how wide the wheels will carry. Hoping to go up to a 285 so the ratio doesn't need to be over 70 for height I want.
