    looking for the best overall tire size on my sr5 tundra have a 3/1.5 level kit being installed i know i want to run the 18x9 +20 fuel vector wheel but i dont know what tires to run at all would like a semi aggressive stance but do not want to do any BMC what so ever. Any thoughts? i also do use the truck for towing a boat so dont want too much of a power loss.

    Lots and lots of threads on this.

    but I’ll help you out since the wheels and lift are what I run. I put on 305/65/18. Work great, minor plastic trimming is all that’s needed.

    Could you possibly weigh a wheel without tire? I see on their site it states it weighs 41lbs and their 20x9 weighs only 40lbs. I don’t see how the 20x9 could weigh less. Thanks!

    I am running 275/65-20 on stock oem 20 inch rim's only thing did was remove the mud flaps and never had single rub issue. They measure around 34.5 inch tall.

    I've got 295/70/17s. Only had to remove the front mud flap (at the front of the wheel well). No other rubbing with a 3/1.5 lift. My plan originally (from reading on here) was to go 315/70/17, but I got a killer deal on these tires, so ended up going that route.

    Not sure if it's the "best" but it's what I went with.

    305/65-18 18x9 +25 Removed the front fender flap, heated and remolded the inner mud flaps and inner front fender just a tad.

    I've been going back and forth between Mastercraft Courser CXT (great, underappreciated tire!), Cooper AT3 XLT, or my go-to, K02s.. Your picture and my love for Cooper tires may have just pushed me off the fence.

    Not as much Poke as some guys like. The front seems pulled in compared to the back. But I like the stance overall.. if you go to much further out you get more fitment issues .IMG_20200227_124244.jpg

    275/70/18 for the win. No tire poke and you keep factory geometry

    It’s a good 1-1.5” lift, minimal impact to power and mpg... don’t have to worry about UCAs, alignment and no mods to factory suspension. No brainer

    I’d like to modify my post and add
    285/75r17 and 315/70r17
    After hauling my FwC across the country can definitely see the benefit in a slightly smaller diameter and lighter unsprung weight setup. Would love some Toyota forged wheels :)
    Also it seems the 285/75r18 price has gone up. $333 each :confused:

    For me, the 295/70 R18s look the best. Wide enough but not too wide and fills the fender well. I'm happy so far with the Cooper Discoverer XLT AT3 as they look aggressive, are lighter than most at 59 Lbs., and ride very well with low noise. I also added the TRD Pro suspension and 1" BORA wheels spacers. My lift is 2.5" up front and 1.5" (shackles) in the back.
