    You can fit 33s stock, its going to look really goofy with 6" of lift and only 33s. These trucks are huge with 6" worth of lift and IMO 35s are even a little small looking with that much lift. Just my thoughts on it.

    you definitely gotta go with at LEAST 35's. If you want go bigger but 35's are like the minimum.

    33's would look very odd and make the truck look FUGLY IMO.

    Ditto. 33's with more than a 3-inch lift will look funny. 35's are a nice compromise. 37's look really good, though a few have had rubbing problems.
    07 DC SR5 TRD 4x4 5.7 TRD exhaust, 85K miles. Truxedo Lo-Pro with deck rails. Front Susp: Stock coilovers, 4" lift (http://www.tundrasolutions.com/forum...6-4-inch-lift/), swapped extra spacers for Bilstein 5100s on lowest setting, wheel well height still 41.5." Rear Susp: ProComp ES3000 #326510 (2.25" taller than stock), 1.25" blocks plus PRG mini-pack (http://www.tundrasolutions.com/forum...and-new-truck/) gives 2.25" total lift, parking brake cable bracket spacers, wheel well height 43." Front diff and rear ds drop; trailer hitch electrical harness tucked up above bumper. After 21K miles swapped 305/65/18 BFG AT for 285/75/18 Toyo AT, still on stock 18x8x60 offset TRD wheels, about 1/8" clearance to sway bar. Like the extra height but miss the width. Added 5th 285/75/18 Toyo AT as spare. 75K went to new 285/75/18 Toyo AT II. Bed Bounce: Stiffer E-tires are worse than stock P-metric; biggest improvement from PRG mini-pack, slight improvement from shocks. Still a stiff ride but tolerable now. Best things about this truck: 5.7 and transmission, interior size and comfort, very quiet at high speed. Worst things about this truck: bed bounce, no VSC in 4wd, mileage sucks above 70. SOLD 8/2013

    Yeah, definitely go with 35's.....37's look even better, but I don't think it's worth dealing with the possible rubbing, extra weight and extra expense! But, it's only my opinion.

    35's definitely....if you're going with a bigger rim..the tire will look smaller too. My 305/55/20's look smaller that those with 18 rims....trust me

    I agree with all, go for as much meat as you can fit on the wheels, without hitting your body mounts.

    Like everyone else said, 33's are way to small for a 6" lift. I have 37's and since hese trucks are so big, they swallow them up. Everyone thinks they are 35's. IMO, the bigger the tire, the better!

    Agree the Tundra does "swallow up tires" Error on the side of bigger on these trucks. The stock tires look like shopping cart wheels on the stock truck.

    Here's mine with a 4" lift with 33's. Any higher and I think it will look weird.
