    Hello,

    I am currently driving a 2014 Toyota Tundra with factory Bridgestone p285 55r20 tires. I am looking to both install a leveling kit and the necessary larger tires.

    My questions:
    1.) Is there a certain lift kit to use vs. others? I am looking to do a simple 2" lift.
    2.) Which tires to go with? I am thinking something like Nitto 305 55r20's? I do ALOT of highway driving but am a outdoor sportsman that hunts and fishes with some all terrain usage

    Any help is great appreciated,

    Thanks, JB

    Hello and welcome. You came to the right place.

    1. For a simple level you are looking at a 2" front lift. You could go with a spacer lift or for a better ride a new coilover. There are a few options with new coilovers. You can get a coilover that has set adjustment points like a Bilstein 5100 or a fully adjustable coilover like what @ToyTec Lifts offers.

    2. 33" diameter tires will fit with the right offset. +20 to a +18 offset will give you a good stance and clearance for wider tires. This will stick out the fender about 1" or so. With stock wheels you will have to get 1.25" wheel spacers to allow clearance. That will put you at about +28" or just barely wider than the fenders.


    I have the @ToyTec Lifts 3/1 Ultimate Bilstein lift with fully adjustable Bilstein 5100s for a front lift of 3" and a 1" block in the back to level. I was able to fit 315/70R17 (34.5" diameter) tires with only minor plastic trimming. I could step up to a true 35" diameter tires with a cab mount chop.

    18"X9" FN BFD's rims, 295/70R/18E Cooper Discoverer STT Pro's, upgraded to Old Man EMU coil-overs/shocks. Toytec shackles Next: true dual exhaust, new UCA's.
    Just for info, my OME's actually provided a 3" lift. It may have something to with the heavy duty coil option. Some sites advertise 2.5". Toytec was advertising the OME setup that I got from them at the time to be a 3" lift, although now advertised as a 2.5" lift. I had a 3" spacer lift (AAL for 1" lift in the rear) and my OME's are slightly higher. Almost no rake left.
