    wanting to put aftermarket wheels on my 2016 tundra. There's not slot of 18" wheels out there so I'm leaning toward 20" wheels need to know what lift I would need so 20" wheels wouldn't rub and the offset I would need to look for. Thanks

    I have the CoachBuilder shackles and love them. @TruckyTruck had a very similar setup that you are looking at so he might be able to give you some good pointers.
    I think a 20x9 wheel with somewhere around a +25 offset will fit very nicely.

    295/65r20 on a 3/1 would look good

    If I'm not mistaken that's a 34 inch tire.

    295-65-20 is a 35x11.8" tire.
    295-60-20 is about 34x11.5".
    Depends how much trimming you want to do. I have the 295-65 and had to do a body mount chop and skid plate and my fender liner.

    you don't need any amount of lift to put 20" wheels on the tundra. many tundras come from the dealer with 20" wheels with stock suspension. the question to ask is how much of a lift do you need for a specific tire size. :p:D

    actually, a 295/70/20 is 36.26 inches. you will definitely need a 3 inch lift for those. and, at a 3 inch lift you should get aftermarket UCA's to get a proper alignment. you probably also need to get the cab mount chop. and if you are going to all that trouble I would look at a higher end lift. one that comes with new coils. for example the boss, kings, toytech, etc. to get a setup for 36's, you are going to spend a lot of money.

    Netmonkey is indeed correct. My 2015 Tundra came stock with 20" wheels (285/55/R20's) and no lift....
