    3” Toytec lift with Zone Offroad UCA’s
    Hey guys, this is my first post. I have a question regarding wheels and tires. I just had a Toytec Boss lift with 3 leaf add a spring package put on my 2015 Tundra 4x4. I also added Zone Offroad UCA’s. I currently have TRD pro 18” wheels and 275/70 18 tires on the rig. I am going to need bigger tires to fill some space, but my installer says that I will need new wheels or spacers to prevent them from rubbing the UCA’s. I was thinking about something in the range of 33” or 285/75r18 tires. I don’t want to add spacers. Does anyone have any experience with these components or could suggest a wheel that will keep my tires from rubbing? Thanks!FF8A1815-13A5-4F92-BF8A-4A5D1142ED5F.jpg 056D77AA-2552-4D28-A538-ED2886DAE8B5.jpg

    With that bumper you can go 285/65/20 with no rubbing. I have a +18 offset and I’m fine with a 3” lift.

    I thought you needed new wheels with a different offset. With the same wheels stick with the stock 275’s with bigger sidewalls

    LT75, yes. The installer said I probably would need new wheels if I put on larger tires. I guess I was looking to see if there were other options aside from using the stock tires that might not involve purchasing new wheels. It sounds like I may just have to go down that road.

    Welcome, nice looking setup.

    Can you take the measurement from the outermost point of the upper control arm to the current tire sidewall for us to know how much room you have?

    Sure doesn’t look like the uca sticks out much past the spindle..

    2ndgenny, Absolutely. I thought that might help, but have very little technical knowledge regarding lifts. The truck is still at the installers until Monday. I will get the measurements then. I also agree that the UCA’s don’t look much wider than the originals which is why I wondered how necessary a wheel change was going to be.

    I honestly don’t think wheels or spacers would be needed. If it is how it looks you can go taller tires as long as they are similar width.

    Agree. That’s what I meant before when I said stay with the 275’s but go taller to keep your stock wheels.

    In the first picture. Is that spring off center at the top, or is it my eyes.

    Most likely would work. I had those on mine before I went to 35x12.5s. But my wheels are about an inch offest. But had miles of room. Still have 1/2” with 12.5 wides.

    I agree. I’ve seen plenty of TRD Pro posts on here with that size tire with no other mods. It may be that your aftermarket upper control arms could affect whether those size tires will rub, though. I’d just have the tire shop test fit them and see.

    I had 295/70/18 cooper max on stock. Could fit my pinky between the stock uca and tire. I ended up getting 1” spacers 6 months later just because. So depending on that uca if it pokes in it out more than stock uca

    3” Toytec lift with Zone Offroad UCA’s
    I’ve got the truck back now. The UCA is definitely close to the sidewall, even with my current tires and wheels. My installer is recommending going to a 9”, 0 offset wheel and 305/75r 17 or 18 tires. He doesn’t think that would require any trimming with my set up. Thoughts?

    I have a Toytec 3/1 lift with 295/70/18s. But with that bumper I think you could easily clear 35s.
