    I recently installed a leveling kit on my 12 Tundra DC. I am planning to upgrade wheels and tires but not sure what size to go with. Initially wanted to go with 285/65/18's but now I am thinking about 275/70/18's because they are about 1 inch taller. Will there be any rubbing issues? Is anyone out there running the 275/70/18 tire? If so, can you post pics.

    40s and lots of chopping is my vote :)

    If it's just a spacer kit up front to level then you can easily fit 32" diameter tires. 33" but might have to remove a little plastic from the front of the wheel well. You will be ok with the width without spacers.

    20140626_072448.jpg 20140626_072403.jpg 20140626_072343.jpg I just added a 2.4 front and 1"rear with the 275/70R-18's. They fit just fine, no trimming needed. This is on a 2010 SR5 Crewmax. I stayed with the stock alloys which are a +60 offset. With 285's you may want to push the wheel out a bit. Just my opinion but I like the extra height but to each their own. The speedo error is not even noticeable.

    275/70-18 MT's on stock rims with stock OR suspension. The only time I get any rubbing is if I come into a sharp turn or mountain curve fast. With the lean, I'll get just enough contact from the outside front tire to hear it, but it's really nothing. In 10 months of driving this rig I think I've rubbed maybe three times.

    What do you have on your bed? That looks like a very cool, purposeful cover... can you share some more photos and tell us what it is...?
