    Ok, first of all I would like to say this site is amazing!
    I have gotten nothing done this weekend because I have spent most of my time looking and reading. That being said, I am saturated with info and I've noticed as I get older it's harder to process once I reach the saturation point. In an effort to prevent further distress, I have a couple of questions....

    My newly purchased 2017 Platinum CM Tundra 4x4 is in desperate need of being leveled! (I have gotten used to a leveled Tundra)
    I plan to buy:
    KMC XD128 Machete (18x9 ET: 25) rims
    285 65 18 BFG KO2 tires

    My questions are;
    Anyone running the same rim/tire setup?
    If so, what level/lift you running? (Please include pics)

    Thanks in advance for any info!!

    Totally understand and agree! My 14 Tundra never saw mud until the end of last deer season (Feb 2018)! The winch was for show I guess... lol

    Here is my '95 F-150 with the 351. Has a little bit of stuff to sort out(more me being particular more than anything). I sold the Tundra. I will get other Tundra in a few years. Just wanted to get something old school for the time being since my trucks sit most of the time.

    Here is our old 96 that we sold a while back. We lifted and put 33s on it. Did quite a bit to it actually. 300 6 cyl engine. Probably should have kept it!!

    That is a killer truck man. I am putting a 2.5 inch rough country on mine with 305/65/R18s on the Raceline Shift wheels in the dark tint. I have all the parts. I am having someone install them just so it can be done and over and I don't have to do it over days when I get off work. Yours looks real clean and I love the 300ci. They are actually going up in value if you can find a good one. Mine only has 98000 and is the eddie bauer so I paid up a little higher than I wanted but I'll be keeping it forever

    Once the next Gen Tundra comes out I am going to buy one once all the kinks are worked out in a crewmax and the old girl will stay in the garage

    By the way this is my old 2015 with 5100s on the top setting with 285/70R18s on Ion Alloy plus 18 wheel. I really liked the set up and it still rode really nice. Let me know if you need any more info

    You can put a 295 tires on the stock wheels? I had no idea. Please let me know if what I'm seeing is what I'm saying, or please correct me. Thanks.

    Yes you can. I believe you can put up to 12.5-13" wide on the stocks. Don't think heigth matters as much as width.

    I am running a 285 65 18 with an 18x9 +25 offset wheel but I don't have a lift. I plan to put 5100s on the front to level it out a little, I still want a little rake to mine so probably will put the 5100s on the lowest setting that gives a little lift.

    I always liked this body style, good looking truck.
