I hope the question makes sense. I believe it was answered before by the Discount Tires guys, but I can't find it.

What is the largest tire that can be put on a stock rim, and still be safe and within Toyota's specs?

You should'nt have to trim the skid plate with a 275/70R18.

If you level it (3/1)and run a 295/70R18 you will need to trim the skid plate.

If you want to stay within Toyota specs you'll want to stick with the exact stock size. Anytime you change the diameter of your tire there will be an effect (big or small based on the amount of change) on your speedo, shift points, ABS, fuel economy etc... Jumping up 1" in diameter (275/70R18) will have a minimal effect on these things but there will be some.

If you want to jump up only 1/2" in diameter the 285/65R18 is also a good size for a stock Tundra with stock wheels not modifications will be required.

With factory suspension or 3/1 and Stock Rock Warrior wheels.... 295/70R17 or 285/75R17.

With a 3/1 lift you can physically fit a larger tire but to do so properly you'd need to run a wider aftermarket wheel as well.

With an aftermarket wheel a 305/70R17 or 315/70R17 can fit, both will likely require some modifications.

I have the same sort of question/request.

I am leveling the truck with the RC kit (front spacer only, @ 2.25" at the front).

I want the wheel wells to fill out better, but don't want to have to cut/bend much (I would prefer not cutting/bending anything at all).

My plan is to level the truck, install my EGR pocket FF's, use the stock TRD 18's & stock tires as winter/off road tires. Then pick up a set of 20" A/M (or possibly a set of 20" Platinum rims) for a nice summer/street tire/rim combo. I would prefer an A/M rim so I can get a wider tire with a smaller offset to fill out to the edge of the FF's.

Hope this helps with a tire/rim recommendation.

Please let me know what tire size & rim size/offset you would recommend to achieve what I described above.

Long-winded I know, but I want this investment to come out with a nice full looking wheel well with minimal cutting/bending of permanent truck parts.

Sorry for the apparent thread jack.....

Edit: I should add that another goal for the summer tire/rim package be a nice quiet comfortable ride for highway/on road driving.

I think you are asking too much from a 2.25" level kit and pocket flares.

Pocket flares look good from the side, but can look horrendous from the back, unless you have the right wheel/tire combo to fill 'em (unless you like the fat chic with a tucked in butt look)

IMO, to be able to pull off pocket flares, you need a 0 offset wheel (on a 9" wide wheel) and a 12"+ wide tire. Guys are running 33" tires on 0 offset wheels with 3" level kits, and only have to push their plastics forward an inch. Not sure how that combo would work on a 2.25" level.

I ran 295/70/18 tires on +18 offset with oem flares, with a 3" level, it looked good. It would have looked stupid if I had pocket flares...imo.

Haha, love the fat chick comment And no, I DO NOT want that....

I appreciate the insight...

And the tire/rim size & specification that gets me where I want to get is what I am asking for. If I need to bite off a 3/1 kit I will do that. Trying to keep a slightly tucked look if I can....

I certainly don't mind pushing the inner fender well plastic here and there....

Where are the modifications to the skid plate needed? I've been running my shoes for a couple months and haven't noticed any need to trim my plate.

If you want all the rubber inside the pocket flares, but not be too tucked in, +10 to +18 will probably get you there. In all honesty, I'd recommend going with the 3/1, so you can get the bigger, wider set-up that you are after. This is coming from someone who wasted money by installing a 2.5" level kit, then later a 3/1 3/1's open up so many more possibilities than the little 2 inchers. 2 inchers are meant to level a stock truck, not put bigger tires on.

My understanding is that a leveling kit lets us go to a 33" tire without trouble. Is that a true statement?

If so, then I am only looking to go to a 33" tire (9"/10" wide, whatever works) that accomplishes the look/ride I want.

BTW, my kit came with the shims to go to 3", I can get a 1" block anywhere if I need to.
