    Bought my Tundra Limited crewmax new in 2016 and now it’s time for new tires. I decided I wanted bigger tires and a two inch level in the front. I’m going with Fabtech leveling kit. I’m swapping out my 20” wheels for 18x9 wheels and I wanted to put 325/60/18. The problem I’m having is no one can tell me which offset for the new wheels. I have been told anything from a 1 to -18 offset. I saw the same tires on another Tundra and the truck looked perfect but didn’t get a chance to ask the owner modes lift etc, etc

    I have been told I need a wider wheel that an 8” but all the specs say I can put a 325/60/18 on a 18/9. True and if so is it smart or should I go 18 x 10?

    The next issue is I pull my boat (24’) and I don’t want any sag. I have had several guys tell me to get bags for the rear. I don’t want a big tank does anyone have any other options suggestions

    Thanks!

    You don't need a big air tank for Firestone ride rite air bags. I've got a set on my truck, I fill them with a small air compressor and roll. Or you can spend a little more and get the kit that comes with a small air compressor and you can fill them from inside the cab. Makes towing sooo much better. Well worth the money.
