i dont understand y only one guy on this entire forum is willing to help out a fellow trucker with little knowledge.
i have a 06 tundra crew cab that is 2wd. i am wanting to put a lift on it. im not sure yet if im gonna go with 5100s or the 3" toytec spacer lift. i have 20" enkei deep six wheels that has a backspacing what seems like 5.25. i know i need adapters to get the tire out for the uca. but im not sure how thick of an adapter i need. what is the biggest tire size grappler i can go with? they have the 305/55/20 which is 33.39" tall and 12.60" wide or the 295/55/20 which is 32.91" tall and 12.52" wide. im ready to order everything but i dont wanna drop that kind of cash until i know its all gonna work.
i have googled the hell out of everything plus searched this site to death. came across a couple members with 3" lift on 33s and pmed them for info and no one has wrote me back.
surely someone has did this to their ride with the enkei deep six wheel

I'd like to think so but it really isn't. Verifying that a specific & uncommon setup will work, before dropping thousands on the equipment, requires an awful lot of measurement and inspection. He's already had the wheels off the truck and the truck in the air, getting measurements to see if it'll work.
The most common adapters are 1.5" thick...get a pair of them, aluminum or steel doesn't matter. You'll want lug-centric adapters, whether you get a centering ring on the adapter to use hub-centric wheels is up to you, but lug-centric works just fine. All my adapters have ever been lug-centric, same with my aftermarket wheels, and they've never caused any problems. Honestly, I'd suggest center bores in the adapters which will fit over a Chevy Dana 60 front hub, that way they will match the majority of center bores on 6x5.5 aftermarket wheels, and if the bore is smaller or you're using center cones on the wheels (I don't know if the Deep 6 wheels have a smaller center bore or not), you won't notice anyway.
I highly, highly recommend swapping your stock lugs for a longer set. Get them from ARP, you'll need three packages as they come in sets of 5, and you need the lugs for the Toyota IS300. Cut them down so the length under the head of the stud, including the knurled section, is between 2.0 and 2.1". Finish the ends with a flap wheel. To get the old studs out, find a socket that fits loosely over the head of the stock lugs, put a large c-clamp around the socket and the threaded end of the bolt, tighten down, and rap the threaded part of the c-clamp with a hammer. There is one spot on the dust shield where you can fit the new, longer studs in place. Put two in snug by hand, then place the adapter over them, and draw the knurled section in with a couple turns of a ratchet wrench on the lug nuts for the adapter. Then do the rest, and draw them all in as far as possible using the adapter and its lug nuts. Finish by having someone else stand on the brakes, while you torque the nuts to spec. Go in a star pattern around the circle a couple times. Pull the adapter, put the wheel & tire back on, and drive around...torque again, check torque frequently for a couple days, the new lugs need to be seated.
When they've seated--no nuts move during torque check--add the adapters, and put some threadlock on the nuts that secure the adapter, then mount your wheels/tires and do the same thing.
Once everything has settled, go get your new tires.
Get the 5100 kit, and get whichever tire has greater tread depth...and if they're the same, get the 305 series. They may rub just a little at the back of the wheel well, but you can fix that. The important thing is making sure they clear the suspension, and that will not be an issue with the adapters.

Before you PM someone, look at the date they were last on-line. Could be you are attempting to 'speak' with someone that is no longer active.
Incidentally, Sean (Devin- above) is usually pretty good at this sort of stuff.

Take a look at the Terra Grappler as well, the section width is offered in a few more sizes and is a little narrower in comparison to the more aggressive Terras.
