    Hi guys, I did a search on here and there doesn't seem to be a lot of people running this size tire. I am going to be ordering up my wheels/tires/suspension this month, but wanted to verify a couple things before hand.

    As the title says I am thinking of going with a 285/75r18 on my 2018 1794. I will be doing like the other two members I have found on this board that are running this size tire, and will be going with a 18x9 wheel with a +25mm offset to try an avoid having to do the body/cab mount chop.

    My question is, will this size tire clear the body mount and everything else (assuming I trim the skid plate and remove the front mud flaps) on that wheel if I choose to go with Bilstein 6112/5160 at the top height setting of 2.5", or would I need to step up to a suspension that offers a full 3" lift like the OME kit?

    Thanks in advance guys!

    I’m not sure they make em in that size I believe with an 18” rim it would be a 285/70. Aslos depends on the tire you want, which what are you thinking? But don’t quote me I’m sure one of the other members with more knowledge will chime in.

    I would probably run them on something closer to a 3" lift if it were me. I've seen 295/70/18 run on the Bilstein at highest setting, but the 285/75/18 I think are about a half inch taller. I would play it safe and go with the little higher lift.

    I was surprised as well, but I believe that a few different manufactures have begun to make a 285/75r18. I was looking at either Nitto Ridge Grappler or Goodyear Duratrac. I just wish cooper made the S/T Maxx in that size, as I had those on my last tundra and they looked/performed kickass.

    This is what I was was thinking as well, that it would probably be wise to play it safe and just go with a 3" lift.

    Thanks for the replies guys, definitely appreciated.

    Well I’ll be they do make them nitro does I just check. I’ve been looking at bags primarily and I’m fairly sure they done offer that size ... at this time ... maybe that’ll change. That nitros a heavy tire though for my liking but it also states a 35” diameter inflated

    I'm not a huge fan of the really stuffed look, I like to see some gap between the fenders and the tires. Nothing against those that run the biggest tire possible on smallest lift, I just prefer a little more space.

    I’m running 285/75/18 on stock rims with a 3/1 leveling kit. No rubbing and I’ve been pleased.

    Yeah, I am thinking that would probably look a bit better.

    Very nice Tundra:thumbsup: I think that is pretty much that stance that I would like to go with, maybe 1.5" in back.

    I’m looking to do the same setup with the 3 in 1 and the 285 75 18 on stock TRD rims. I just wasn’t sure about the factory offset being +60. Didn’t know if i had to purchase wheel spacers. I prefer not too. Great looking truck!

    Yep, stock wheels with no spacers. I’ve got the @Toytec Lifts TU3 kit on the truck. It’s been great for 8k miles. Some mild off road driving when hunting/camping and zero complaints.
