    i know...another "will it fit thread". Seriously, I have looked at 100's of pages of tire/wheel/lift combinations and it's making my head spin. If I could do a 3" lift, then this would be easy. I would go with a 295 60 20. However, I have a height restriction. The bar at the entrance of the parking garage at work is at 79.75" (toyota's website says that the truck is at 75.8"). This gives me 3" maybe 3.5" of total height increase to play with.

    So I have decided that I will go with the 5100's for a lift. Most likely at the second setting (1.57") or possibly the top setting (2.25"). I also have a 20x9 wheel with 50mm offset. My current tires are 275 55 20 (32.125" measured diameter). So what's the best size for my circumstances? Will 295's clear the UCA with a 50mm offset wheel? If so, can I squeeze in a 295 60 20? If I do need wheel spacers, then I probably couldn't clear 295 60's, right? Then I should go with a 305 55 20? I don't mind trimming plastic and/or removing mud flaps, but I rather not do the CMC if possible. I have also thought of 285 60 20 or maybe 275 65 20. What do you guys think?
    Trying to make the right decision is driving me crazy :annoyed::goingcrazy:

    I'd go with spacers.

    Width is completely up to you though, I prefer 295 over 305.

    I definitely like a tire that is a little narrower. Somewhere in the 11.5" range. Personally not a fan or 12.5" wide tires.
    295-60-20 would be awesome. Might be some trimming.
