    I know this question had probably been asked a million times but I'm getting ready to put in my toytec 3" lift and was wondering what size tires guys were running with this or close to the same lift. Need to get tires and rims yet. Going to be going with 18x9 rims so any help with the offset would be great too. Want them to look good with fender flares. Any pics would be great too

    There are different type of fender flares, smooth ones and pocket style ones. I will assume that you are looking at pocket style ones (which tend to stick out more). I think 18 mm is a good compromise between form and function (that's why I went with that offset). If you go lower, you will probably have to deal with body mount chop. Higher will look too tucked in. I have 295/70/18 (about 34.5 inches in diameter). I could not install 35 tires without chopping the body mount. So I had to settle with that size.

    Thanks. Yeah I was gonna get the bushwacker pocket fender flares and I believe they have 1.75" tire coverage. Don't want them hanging way outside of that but didn't want them all tucked in either and look like a turd. 295 70 or 295 65 were the tires I was looking at just didn't want it to look like they were stuffed in there. Do you have any pics of yours?

    My sig picture should give you an idea as to how much the tires stick out. Here's a picture from the rear (I posted this picture before in other threads).

    Nice ride!! Your setup is exactly what I'm doing boss, shackles, UCA'S. You have to do any trimming with the 35's? Also what rims are you running and what's the offset?
