    35" with 18" is what I had and looked great on my 3" lift

    But if I had a 6" I would go 37" on 18"

    20s with 37s would look awesome. That would be my choice with a 6" lift

    Each lift I've had, I removed the flaps. Looks so much nicer without!

    Tacomas 4.0's can handle them...but they usually re-gear by the time they put on 37"
    So yes, but it's going to add some good stress to the tranny IMO

    35" IMO ...just to save some stress on the tranny...and it'll be a little cheaper for you.

    Not sure on the gears for a 37 on a Tundra. I could tell you if you had a Tacoma. I upgraded to 4:56 to handle 35's on my 07 Tacoma.
    I would have to research and calculate to find the best ratio for the Tundra.

    Stock Gear Ratios
    • 5.7L
      • 4.3 with tow package
      • 4.10 without tow package
    • 4.6L/4.7L
      • 4.10 with tow package
      • 3.90 without tow package
    The 5.7 has the AB60E/F and the 4.6 has the A760E.
    "The 4.6 tranny has lower gear ratios, especially in the first 4 gears, 5th and 6th gears are nearly the same as in the 5.7."

    Toyota AB60F transmission gear ratios:
    1st: 3.333
    2nd: 1.960
    3rd: 1.353
    4th: 1.000
    5th: .728 (First overdrive)
    6th: .588 (Second overdrive)

    Both look great, but if you plan to do some serious off-roading 18s would be better.

    There's a guy on YouTube that rocks 20s or 22s with 35s on his Tacoma and crawls like the rest of them over difficult rocks
