    Default 275/60/20 tires with 3/1 level kit?

    Hey everyone, love the forum so thank you in advance for your help. I have a 2007 Tundra SR5 4x4 Crew Max. I am wanting to install 275/60/20 tires. Will a 3/1 level kit be too much....I don't want the tires to look small and out of place. I just want my truck to look slightly more aggressive, nothing overkill. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I just installed a 3/1 kit and went with 305/55's. They fit with no rubbing and no trimming. I would think that is a bit much for just 275's. Just a 2 inch front would probably suit the tires best. What are you more set on going with? The size tires or the size lift?

    If you go to the thread below this one "INSTALLED...." you will see pics of the 3/1 with 305's

    jgalanti's setup does look very nice but I think that 305/55/20 is about a 33.2" tire and the 275/60/20 is about 33". My calcs could be off but I don't think there would look to much of a difference except the width of the tire.

    You need min 305/ 55R20. You could also go 33" tire and it will nice and clean.
    I ran 33's BFG AT with a 3/1 kit. Good set up.

    275 size tire is too small.

    Thanks everyone for responding. I also prefer the looks of the 305's over the 275/60/20. I prefer that little extra width with the 305, I am just not sure I want to spend that much. Also, I have been told by two tire shops here to avoid 10 ply tires at all cost due to the quality of ride (I know that is purely opinion). I think at the moment I am leaning towards a level kit only, not the 3/1, with 275/60/20 tires. Hopefully I won't regret not going bigger.
