    What's up everyone!

    So I'm close to pulling the trigger on a set of Ridge Grapplers, size 35x12.5, on a 3" lift. However, I'd like some feedback on whether to go with 17's or 18's. I thought I was set on going with 18's, but after seeing a few Tundra's with the 35 and 17 combo (which looks very clean) I'm second guessing which size to go with.

    I'm pairing the RG's with the Method con6's, matte black finish.

    Does anyone have or have seen a set of 35's with 18's? If so, please post pics! That may help sway my decision one way or the other.

    Thanks in advance for the feedback and for your help.

    The number of 17 inch wheels available for Tundras is still very small. Might become an issue later on if you change your mind about wheels.

    I have the 305/70/17's on RockWarrior wheels. I love them, wish the wheels were a little wider, but they still look good.

    None, yet....
    My vote is also for 17s. More sidewall = better ride.

    Thanks for the feedback guys! Going with the 17's.

    Did you guys have to do a BMC?

    Also, do you guys have a RG spare? If So, does it for underneath the rig?

    Thanks again!

    Hi guys. So I ended pulling the trigger on the Niitto RG's 35x12.5 r17. Question on my lift: I'm going with 3" fox coilover lift in the front and 2" in the rear. Will that be enough clearance for offroading as well? Will also be doing a BMC and trimming fender liner.

    Thanks again for the feedback guys.
