    So right now I'm running the 18" BBS rims with 255/70/18 michelins.

    I finally found a set of TRD Pro rims and they have the 265/70/18 michelins on em.

    Gonna let Toyota put my Pro rims on when I drop it off for a oil change on Thursday. Will I need an alignment after going up just one size in tires?

    Wanting to get the least amount of alignments as possible. I have Bilstein 5100's that I plan on putting on before the next time I get an alignment done. Was hoping I could put it off until I get some bigger tires (275/70/18) and just install the tires and shocks and maybe some 1.25" spacers at the same time and then get an alignment done.

    If I need an alignment after going up just one tire size, I may as well go ahead and get the shocks put on as well and then get an alignment again later when I install new tires + spacers.

    Thoughts?

    Do this, unless your alignment is currently needing some help.

    Thanks, that would be much easier. My current tires are wearing perfectly so it isn't a need at this time. Was just hoping that the next size up wouldn't throw it off much, which doesn't sound like it will be the case.

    Yeah changing tires normally dosnt require alignment. When you mess with your suspension or add substantial weight to the vehicle is when you need an alignment
