Just bought a new 2010 Tundra DC 4x4 yesterday as the dealer offered me a deal I couldn't pass up ($6,500 off sticker and 4% interest rate for 4yrs). The tires and wheels look horrible so I want to change them out immediately. The plan was to put ICON 3inch coilovers, Camburg upper control arms and MickeyThompson AT 305/70/18s with Ultra Grinders.

However, the truck only clears my garage opening by a few inches. Can someone tell me with a 3inch lift and 70inch tall tires how much it would lift my trucks roof line? I don't want to spend 5K on mods just to find out the truck won't fit in the garage!

Also, does anyone know where I can get a billet grill, replacement, with the toyoto logo for a 2010? Carriage Works is the only one that comes close but you have to bolt the logo onto the grill which looks kind of cheap.

Maybe he really does have a huge garage. They say that everything is big in Texas, right? :D

My guess is you'll add 4.5-5" over stock. Those tires are 35" and the stock tires are roughly 32" so you'll gain 1.5" over stock there + the three inches of lift.

Yeah, I have 255/70/18 right now so if I went to 305/70/18 Mickey Thompsons ATZ the height of the tire shouldn't change just the width right? Currently I have exactly 7inches from the top of my cab to the top of the garage door.

That 70 is 70% of the width, is the height of the sidewall. So 70% of 305 mm = the height of the sidewall from the rim to the tread. I will provide a link to a tire calculator and you can put in the numbers and play with it. If you have 7 inches of clearance now then you should be ok with the new setup. There is a guy mhollack that is the expert on tires and wheels maybe he will come along and explain the metric tire sizes better.

Thanks for the info, I didn't know about the 70 being 70% but that makes sense.

With ICON coilovers set to 3inches would I actually get a 3inch lift due to the fact the trucks nose is already lower than the rear?

Congrats on the new truck... I too have those ugly rims... I think it is a GST promo package. A couple of people have even called them the rental truck rim. I don't understand why they put such a narrow tire on these trucks either, especially on a 4x4. I look forward to seeing some follow-up pictures of your new tire/rim set-up.
