Want my tires to stick out past the fender a little

    2015 Tundra limited CM 4x4
    Brand spanking new, need mod ideas!
    Hi, I read the write up and I have an idea of what my truck can handle but I'd like some suggestions. I have a 2015 cm 4x4 limited with leveling spacers. I don't know anything about offset but I'd like the tires to barely stick out past my fender. My stock tires are inside my fender and I don't like that look. I want to keep my stock limited 20" rims and put all terrains. I know they can't be to wide but how do I know what I can handle without trimming? Has Anyone done this and or have pics? I'd like 33"s. I believe my stock tires are 275/55/20. Help and advice is much appreciated. I just want the biggest/nicest all terrain tire I can fit in my stock rim that rides quite and looks good!

    Other guys will be able to help with exact size but 33's should be zero issue.
    Look into the Toyo AT2 Xtreme tire, my favorite AT tire by far.

    275/60r20 is a 33" tire that should fit without rubbing, or maybe just very minor rubbing, but the tire will still be tucked in with the high positive offset of the stock limited rim. You could get wheel spacers to "space out" the rim a bit more outward.

    Another option could be a 305/55r20 sized tire. It's a 33" tire as well, but it's a bit wider (305 mm wide compared to 275 mm). But you may need a slight lift up front to fit and the wider tire may also rub the skid plate.

    Forgot about a couple other tire options that are about 33" that may fit:

    285/60r20
    295/55r20

    Stock limited wheels have a +60 offset. If you want to fit larger tires and stick out a little outside the fender you should add 1.25" wheel spacers. Will bring you to about +20 offset.

    Even with that they're still pretty tucked under; esp with 33"

    True. Post up the pics you had with the pro and your tire size.

    Don't have any as I knew it was temporary. There should be one in my gallery though.

    You'll probably be happier getting new +20 offset wheels even if it means saving more money and waiting longer. I don't think that wheel will sit outside the fender as far as you're describing.

    Here is Sean's with the 1.25" wheel spacers on the pro wheels that are an offset of +60.

    My +20 offset and the stock 285 55 20s I used to have, stuck out just a hair. With a +60 offset, a 1.5 inch spacer will probably get you where you want to be with 305 55 20s. You still may have to remove the front mud flaps.

    I have 20in Trd Carve wheels +60 offset. Will 275/60/20 ko2 with a 1.25 wheel spacer get me to about even with my fender?

    I have a 2016 CM with a 2.5" level. I put 285/60/20 Duratracs with Bora 1.25" spacers. They definitely rub. Had to trim the front fender and use self tapping screws to screw the front (rear) mudflap to the frame. Also had to bend the skid plate back.

    I have 305/50/20 nitto grapplers on my Tundra and they only rub on turnarounds- when all the weight is on one direction or the other. I currently don't have a lift it spacers. I do have high offset as well and want them to stick out a bit as well. My concern is that I've read in other forums that they (spacers) aren't safe. But it sounds like you all have had no issues, right?

    I did that on a previous truck and eventually regretted it. The side of my truck was never clean. The tires kick all sorts of road grime onto your truck without the fender to stop it. It sure looked cool though... just my $.02

    You will definitely regret it if you ever drive on gravel roads very much. Every ting ting you hear will be paint chipping off.

    Sorry I know I'm pulling old thread and it's probably been beaten to death, this is exactly the wheel setup I'm trying to run. 6112/5160 combo 3 shims, 2 on driver side and +3 CB shackles, and just ordered bora 1.25 spacers. stuck at what the best setup for me would be, occasional off roading but want the aggressive stance and BIGGER tires would 295/65/20 fit without major chopping, or should I just stay with 285/65/20? Which seems to be the more popular choice. I know I'm limited to options with the OEM Platinum wheels. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Stock wheels (60 mm offset) with 1.25 in wheel spacers will be about 28 mm offset. But stock wheels are only 8 inches wide. So the outer edge of the stock wheel with 1.25 in wheel spacers will be about the same position as the outer edge of after-market wheels (say 9 inches wide) with 41 mm in offset.

    There is a certain amount of variation, but my wheels (18x9, 18 mm offset) with stock tires (275/65/18) stuck out some ways from the factory fender. So for stock wheels with 275s with 1.25 inch wheel spacers will be tucked in roughly about 1 inch from this picture.

    Thanks for the reply, so do you think I'll be better off with 1.50" spacers instead to fit 35's?

    I have a 2007 tundra. I'm looking to add a spacer that I'm not sure on what size to get when purchasing 33/12.5/20 tires. I have the toyota platinum +60 offset rims and was wandering how much a 1.5" or 2" spacer
    would allow the tire to stick pass the outside of the fenders? I ride on pavements 90% of the time which shouldn't hurt my truck's paint job, I guess?

    Do you have a pic of the very front to show exactly how much your tire sticks pass the fender?
