    Hey I got a 2018 Tundra TRD Sport 4x4 and i’m looking to upgrade the tires but I can’t decide between 33’s or 35’s. I don’t want to lift it because I use it too often for towing. Hope you guys can show me some pics of what youve got.

    I’d say definitely 33s without a lift. 35s are going to look out of place IMO

    You’re going to lose more from the tires you choose than from the lift. Lift is only going to create wind resistance. The tires are what is going to kill it. I have a 2 inch lift in the front. I’m undecided on your tire size as well. I want to keep what gas mileage I do have and power to the ground as well. I may just step up to 275 70 18’s (33”)

    I like the look of the 33s and think 35s take up to much of the wheel well. But most think the 35s look better

    I think it looks great man. Big tires look great but yours looks proper as well. Looks like you’ve got a lot of room for wheel travel. I bet the power feels almost like stock? How much of a milage difference did you see?

    I think 34s 295 70 18 is sweet spot. With level. Would fit stock I think too

    On stock Pro suspension, yeah. I’d be very surprised if someone got them to on TRD suspension though.

    I run 275/70/18. With 3/1. They look fairly normal, maybe on the small side sometimes. But I tow often, I use the truck for truck things, and I rarely do any serious offroading.

    When I need new tires I will go to something closer to 34".

    I have 3/1 and 295/70/18 stock wheels. Can’t fit any wider without spacer. Looks great but honestly I think 285/75/18 would be perfect on stock wheel. But not too many options for that size. Atleast they don’t make cooper max in that

    Yours looks great and balanced. The so called "gap" (which looks normal to me on your truck) means you can still articulate and stuff the front tire into the wheel well without tearing something up.

    I have a 2” lift with 275/70/18 and is as big as I would go towing a lot. That size looks good stock also!!

    This is that size before leveling.

    Also if you are a serious off-roader, 35’s will rub the fender well when tucked.

    If I towed a lot, I'd stick with 33s (275/70/18) to minimize power loss, especially with no lift. 35s with no lift may require lots of fenderwell cutting, but I have no experience with that setup. Another option is 285/70/18, which is almost a 34" diameter tire. But I think 275/70/18 is probably better for frequent towing and no lift.
