    Looking to replace 285\50\20 with 305\50\20...Has any one done this and do they fit properly and safely? Do I need to put a leveling kit or lift on it? I have 2012 Tundra XSPX 4x4.

    Thanks for the help!

    285/50/20 is smaller than stock and 305/50/20 is the stock size. You should be fine as long as your wheel offset is reasonable (not too high, not too low). Do you know the offset of your wheels?

    Not sure of the offset...those are the original tires...I bought the truck off the show room floor...if I do 315, probably would have to trim out wheel wells?
    So I'm thinking that 315 would take some wheel well trimming? I am not sure what the offset is? I bought the truck off the show room floor brand new...those tires were on it from Southern Toyota mods. Correction to tire size 285/55/20...I am in Iraq so trying to do this through a friend while I am gone...

    If you're not going to get new wheels and the ones you have right now are stock, I'd probably get some wheel spacers. 305 and 315 would probably hit the UCA.
