    I have a 15 double cab with stock suspension at the moment. I am soon going to be upgrading to the Bilstein shocks all the way around which will give me about 2.28" lift up front for a leveled out look. My plan was to go with 275/70/18 Cooper ST Maxx, but the rims that I plan on going with if I cant find TRD Pro wheels are 18x9 and the 275/70/18 tires aren't recommended for more than a 8.5" wide rim.

    My next option is a 295/70/18 tire. Will I be able to run these with the Bilstein setup and +18 offset wheels without any problems? If so what other mods will I need to make to the truck to accompany the bigger tires? I have never ran anything larger than 33's so I'm not sure if there is anything else that I would need to do. I'm sure the speed and mileage would probably be off, but if I recall there are options to add something that would accurately measure these things?

    Any major downsides from going to a 34" as opposed to a 33" besides even shittier gas mileage?

    Any advice is much appreciated!

    I just did my truck last week. I have bilstein 5100s. Adjusted to full height and have 285 75 18 with +25 offset. No rub smooth ride. And still have room to go 35s if I wanted to.

    I've ran the setup on TRD wheels, and now aftermarket +18mm wheels. Wheel spacers and a little bit of manipulation to the fender liner on the back side of the front bumper was necessary. With my aftermarket bumper now the only rub I occasionally get is on the edge of my stock 'skid' plate in the front. A trim or bend on the edges would take care of that

    Did you need the spacers even after going from stock wheels to the +18 offset ones? I would think the +18 offset would be enough to push them out far enough not to need spacers. I'd like to avoid using spacers if possible.

    No the +18 is about ideal which is why I went with it. The stock wheels just have way too much backspace hence the spacers when I still had my trd wheels on
