    Not to beat a dead horse, but I do have a wheel question I did not see answered on the other posts: Do we have to stick with 18 inch or bigger wheels? I like the look of small wheels with larger tires. I think it would look great to have 16 inch Mickey's or Walker Evans with large tires. Is that possible, or do we need the 18s+ to carry the weight of the vehicle safely?

    17s are as small as you can go, plenty of 17 options out there - even more so, specifically made for clearing 35s.

    Look into Icon or Rock Warrior wheels

    You gotta be able to clear the calipers; not sure if 16s will clear. Someone with knowledge will jump in I'm sure.

    I prefer smaller rims, too. Like the others said, 17s are the smallest you can go, and there is only a small selection of 17" wheels that will fit over a Tundra's large brake calipers. The OEM " Rock warriors", Method wheels and the Icon six-speed 17" wheels. There might be one or two others, but those are the only ones I can think of .

    Do you know of any 17" wheels in our bolt pattern that don't fit over the caliper? I'd be surprised if a manufacturer made a set of wheels in our bolt pattern that didn't fit...

    I admit I don’t know any that do not fit. From what I’ve read on here and elsewhere is that our brakes are so big that only a select few fit. If that’s the case, then I would be surprised if more did fit, but I have no personal experience attempting to fit 17s on my truck.
