    Tundra (17 DC 4x4) is leveled on 2nd setting of Bilstein 1500s. Nothing to rear. Went to America's Tire and wanted a BFG Ko2 in 285 70 18. Don't come in that size they said and recommended 305 65 18 Ko2. Going with Fuel Vector wheels with a +20 offset. He went out to the truck and said it would fit no problem.

    A) Anyone else running this set up/tire size with no rub/trimming required? (Combed archives and most are running larger than a level kit with that size)

    B) Are there any other issues that may arise besides gas mileage when going up to a tire that size?

    Thanks everyone!

    You can always get them test fitted.

    Yes; more weight equals less mpg.

    You're going to need a bigger spare tire too.

    I was running that size on my leveled truck few years back. No issues. You could go 295/70/18 with a bit of plastic trimming instead

    Your speedometer will be off by a little, as well as other figures that rely on that instrument.

    But more importantly, there's the additional attention that comes with your truck looking awesome. Make sure you can handle it.
