My Bridgestone Revo's are about done (265/75/16).

I have a 2003 Tundra 4x4 Regular Cab truck with stock everything.

I have a set of SAW racerunner coilovers to install in the front to level it out.

(1) With the SAW's installed and the front leveled out, what is the largest tire that can be installed with stock wheels?

(2) If I decide to get new wheels, what would the backspacing (all specs.) need to be and could this change the size of tires i need?

This needs to happen within a few weeks, all help would be appreciated.

Thanks, dffhogs

I've run 285 BFGs on American Racing Baja rims with 4.5" backspacing and had mild rub on the frame with a Revtek 3" suspension lift. I now have 305 BFGs on Mickey Thompson rims with 3 5/8" backspacing and have no rub at all. The backspacing is the key. There are those that run 315s on this site with only 3" lift, but most state there is some amount of rubbing. I personally think that anything over a 33" (285/305) is too big with on 3" lift. 315s (35" tire) look too big. There is a balance of truck height and tire size to keep the truck looking good.

Hope this helps

Thanks KFlash.

I will not be adding an aal so I will only raise the front about 1.5". Would i be able to run the 285's on the stock rims or would I have to change the backspacing (new rims) to do this? Or would I be able to run the 285's at all?

you probably need a good 2" in the front for 285s to fit with new wheels of backspacing of 4". You could use stock wheels and go with the 255/85/16s as they are about 33.1" tall and 10.1" wide tire.

The stock rims are only 7" rims and are about 4-4.5" backspacing. You would want an 8" rim. Yes I agree that 285s would be a little large for only 1.5 lift.

With an 1.5" of lift the 255/85 fits you still need to modify the pinchweld a bit because they will rub a full stuff/turned. BTW the S/T's are excellent off-road.
