    Hey, I just purchased the obligatory 3" rough country lift for my 18 tacoma. What's the biggest tire I can run without modifications. I've heard 285's, Is that correct?

    Well, it's cheap and does what I need it to do without changing the ride. They do ride nice. I'm tall and sick of hitting my freaking head every time I get in and out of this thing! Im used to much bigger trucks and need this thing to grow up a bit! Was hoping the lift and new set of sneakers would help heal my skull! Plus I tend to overload the bed often. Just looking for input. Any would be appreciated, thanks.

    Ok gotcha.. I thinks 285s are pretty much the limit but @OR17TRD is our lift/tire and wheel expert. Maybe he will chime in

    265/75/16 or 265/70/17 on stock wheels.
    285/75/16 or 285/70/17 with the right offset and or wheel spacers.
    O or -6 offsets seems to work well.
    Maybe a 305/65/17 on a +4 offset if you want fat
    Or a
    275/70/18 on +18 offset if you want taller skinny.
    Any of those it’s about the right offset of the wheel and a good alignment to limit rubbing. You might have some rubbing at full lock. The wider or lower the offset you go the more likely it will rub.
