    recently I bought a 14 Tacoma looking to see what nice but not to flashy upgrades I can do I have started changing all my lights over to led. And also wanting to keep stock wheels but I want to know how big of a tire I can run with a 2inch leveling kit up front.

    I want a tire that’s a bit meaty and aggressive

  9. I think you can fit 33” that’s what I can fit on my 2014 Taco

    Yes, you can fit 33s, but there won’t be much clearance. You’ll have to do trimming for the rubbing when turning. Possible cab mount chop as well. It’s possible to do though.

    Do you get rubbing at all

    My nephew has a ‘11 with 33s and Bilsteins on the 2nd notch, which gives 1 1/2-2” lift. He has had to do trimming on the front wheel well pan, bumper and back side of the flare. That was for
    just turning with little articulation. You might have better luck. I’ve had to do the same trimming on my ‘10 with 4” suspension lift.

    if you do a 2" leveling kit you will need to remove some plastic pieces and with 33" tires you will have some rubbing. Depending on offset, you could have rubbing on upper control arms. I don't like spacer leveling kits if that is what you plan on. I have a Toytec 3" lift with SPC upper arms and 33" tires. No rubbing.
