    New here from Louisiana! I have a 2011 grey Tundra Platinum 4x4 Crewmax 5.7 with 2.5 level kit running 305/55R20 Toyo OC Extreme. LOVE THIS TRUCK!!!! I do have a question, with these heavy tires I noticed the truck feels a little sluggish now. Was wondering if a tuner would be worth the upgrade? Now this truck is technically a work truck (father in law owns company and he gets a new tundra every 2-3 years and I then get his "older" truck) . My next truck will be a 2014/15 Tundra 1794 edition with 5.7 4x4. Will be doing the same leveling kit and tires to that truck also. Would the tuner work for this truck?

    Larger tires need the speedo calibrator. Hypertech makes one that alot of us have.
    Hypertech interceptor or BullyDog are the tunners. Hypertech is cheaper and milder and very easy to install.

    Welcome to the site. I've gone the tuner route on one of my vehicles. There is a definite "seat of the pants" difference.

    Thanks, I said I'm a long time Toyota owner because my first truck was a blue/purple 1995 Tacoma (first year they came out with the new body style). It was a hammy down from my dad it was an extended cab 4x4 with the 2.7 L 4 cylinder, which is a BEAST of an engine! I drove it from 100,000 miles to around 275,000-290,000miles. Now the truck is our farm truck and is still rolling. Next was an 07 Tundra Limited TRD and now it's the 11 Platinum.

    Welcome. Those are some good hand-me-downs. I have 295/70/18 and the truck feels bit different, but I would not describe it as sluggish. It still snaps my neck when I accelerate. For some who experience power sap, they report that zero point calibration helps. Might be worth a try.
