    20 inch fuels on 33" Toyo Trail Grapplers
    Wassup fellas.. new to the Tundra world. Ive had a couple jeeps. The old lady and I are going to start camping/kayaking etc and I needed something that could get the yard work done. So I went and got a Tundra, always wanted one! Well I found a 2014 Toyota Tundra double cab limited. It has just at 30k miles on it. Only thing done to it is 20inch fuel rims and it has 33" Trail Grapplers on it. Pretty pumped up about it! Im coming from a jeep that had 35's on it though. I would like to put 35s on this one once I can figure out how much lift I need.
    So here is the question, a stock Tundra, how much lift is needed to fit 35" tires on it. I know I need to figure out how much, if any is on mine at the time being, but I would like to know, from stock, how much is needed. I imagine not much is on mine now because I have rubbing in the front, only when the truck is in reverse though and I am cutting the tires pretty hard.

    Couple pictures are attached.

    Welcome to the forum! You are right, a bunch of people wonder this same question! Search around and you'll find plenty of threads that go into more detail on it, but to fit 35"s you will more than likely need to do a mod called the "cab mount chop", and push the plastic fender liners in a little bit as well as remove the useless little mudflap in the front (looks like that part has already been done).

    You may also have to trim the skid plate a little bit. Have you considered 295/70/18 tires? They aren't quite 35's (more like 34.5), but they look really good on our trucks and don't require much modification to make them fit since they are a little more narrow than a 35x12.50 tire as well.

    Looks like the truck is leveled out right now, so you wouldn't need any extra lift to fit the 295s. Take some pictures of your suspension setup and we can tell you what it has on there now!

    - Bull Bar, - HID Bunny Burners - AMP retractable running boards, - Headlight leveling retrofit - P1 Brake Controller - 60% rear seat delete - relocation of Sub to rear wall. - 3/1 leveling kit - Firestone Air bags - on-board compressor with auto-leveling, - Dual Undercover Swing Boxes. - P285/65/R20 (34.6") BFG TA KO2's - TRD Front skid plate - Pop & Lock Tailgate lock (soon) - Remote Tailgate mod (soon) - LED Headlights (soon) - Nav Bypass - iPhone integration - Serius/XM retrofit
    285/65/R20 will fit with a 3/1 level without rubbing. No cutting required. Your truck already looks like its been leveled. A lot of us are running BFG KO2's. Great tire!

    Thanks fellas for the information. Going to get you the pictures for sure. What exactly is the cab chop? Hard to do?

    In short, you can install 35s with a 3/1 leveling kit. But the amount of chopping you will have to do will depend on the offset of the wheels you get. It seems that the sweet spot is around 35 mm offset (for 9 inch wide wheels). There are some guys with Bilstein 5100 (little less than 3 inches of lift) that have 35s installed, as I remember, without cutting anything.
