    OK, I'm going to get my order going with a shop here for tires/wheels and a level. I have a 2016 CM SR5 w/TRD. I plan to level with Bilstein 5100's up front on the mid to top setting (2" at the most), maybe have it with a slight rake if anything. Thinking 18" wheels with a +25mm offset. I don't want much in terms of tire outside the fender. Was going to go with BF Goodrich TA KO2 tires size 275/70r18. Anyone have any pictures of a similar setup? Would like to get this right the first time if I can. Going for a custom look while still recognizing most of my driving is around town hauling the kids to football games, occasional off road for camping/hiking. Any other recommendations for tire size? I'd like to keep it 18" if I can for the ride, and I'd rather not do any trimming while still filling up the wheel well more than stock. Any advice/pics are greatly appreciated!

    I think 275/70/18 is the perfect size for Bilstein 5100. Tires at this size are reasonably priced also.

    That'd look perfect. I have a 3/1 with 275's and the tires look slightly too small but still acceptable, so a 2" lift would be great.

    Do it

    Sounds good - thanks for the advice. I think I'll go with that. Found a local 4x4 shop here that has been open for 3 weeks - they are hungry for business and are cutting me a killer deal for the tires, wheels, and level.

    Check the link to my build thread in my sig. I have 5100's on middle setting with 275/70/18's. With +25 rims your tires will stick out a bit further past the fender than mine since mine are +60.

    275/70/18 BFG KO2, my wheels are +20
    2 inch level in front only. Only had to remove front mud flaps. Saving up for King's all around,.so I just threw on some front 2' spacers up front to get me by, they actually feel better than stock, which was mushy.

    These are the third set of KO2 I've had on previous trucks, love them.

    Here is a side view for offset reference at +20

    I just bought a tundra 1794 all stock 4x4 it brings bridgestone 275x55x20 streetf tires I was thinking on putting a litter bigger tire more aggressive on them, my truck is a little lower in the front and I do not think it can be done, what do you recommend?

    Similar setup I'm going for, except Im going to go with a 3" LRO spacer up front. I also want to run 275/70/18's. How are you liking your setup? Plenty of clearance? Think you could have gone bigger tires?

    Also how is the ride on the spacer? Is it same as stock?

    @Law323 - any suggestions from what you've read/know on setting the Bilstein 5100? Taking it to the shop tomorrow, can either go top or mid setting. From what I am reading, the top setting is like 2.2" and the middle setting is 1.8". That seem right? I would prefer level to a slight rake over level to a slight nose up. Would I be safer to go with the middle setting? Either way I'm still doing a diff drop since it's only like $30. Thx!

    Top setting is perfectly fine from what I've heard. You won't need a shackle or block with 2.5 inches.
