    I have 6" rough country suspension lift with 16x8.5 rims 4.5 backspace, and am getting 315x75r16 toyo mud tires next week, and I'm wondering if I'll have to do any cutting of fenders/body mount part of the frame?

    I don't know first hand trying to squeeze 35s on a 2nd gen tacoma. But probably have to ditch the front mudflaps and might have to do a cab body mount chop

    Says on line 35x12.5x17 with a 4-5/8 rim backspace should work

    Thanks. Yeah everything says they should fit. Got a slight rub right now with 33's but I also have 1.25" wheel spacers. Thinks may have to ditch them. They'll fit if I chop the cab mount, but I would prefer not to if I don't have to

    No problem. Yeah id ditch the mudflaps if you haven't already, try it without he spacers see if that helps. What sucks is just how small the fender wells are on the tacomas

    Got my tires on. Had some serious rubbing, but decided I liked how it looked with the wheel spacers, so I started cutting away. Cab mount chop, and some serious trimming of rear part of fender, but I'm good now. Here's some pictures

    Yeah I'm liking that look to. Good luck with it! Not to sure if you might need to look at re gearing it with the 35s

    I have a 6" RC and ordered 35's. The 6" application called for max tire 35's. How is it you had to modify so much? Was it the 1.25" spacers?

    Yeah, I think the wheel spacers threw everything off. Didn't try it without them. Was gonna try, but was having a hard time getting them off,and I said **** it, I like how it looks with them lol. Here's a picture

    Holy crap. That does look nice. Is that safe to cut the body mounts that much? What did you use to cut them? Sawzall?

    Thanks. From what I've read, a lot of people have chopped their mounts, seems to be ok lol. I used an angle grinder, with 4" cutting wheels

    Haha 1 year to the day response lol. It was fairly easy just jack up truck, take off wheels, and start cutting

    I've cut and cut and cut. Still get rubbing in a left turn and hitting a bump. On the right too but not as easy as it is to the left.

    I've got a pro comp 6" with 35x12.5 and I have had no rubbing at all but I want to add spacers. Would I have to go down in tire size and do you know the biggest I could run without rubbing?
