Ok so im new here. Just picked up a 2008 Limited Double Cab 2WD. About to take a go at fitting 35's on there. Heres my plan.

Ready Lift 4/2 Kit: (part# 69-5475)
Toyota Tundra Lift Kit, 4 inch SST Lift Kit by ReadyLIFT
Same one "TundraRunsDeep" is running: http://www.tundratalk.net/forums/tu...ires-magnaflow-catback-exhaust-installed.html

Wheel: Either
1.) 20x9 +18mm Offset (5.75" Back Space)
or
2.) 20x9 +25mm Offset (6.00" Back Space)

Tire: Either
1.) Nitto Terra Grappler LT295/60R20 E126Q Height: 34.45" Width: 12.36"
or
2.) Nitto Terra Grappler LT325/60R20 D121R Height: 35.12" Width: 12.91"

Question is Wheel 1 or 2, and Tire 1 or 2.

A quick look at the Ready Lift Tire Size Chart here:
Tire/Wheel Sizing - Copyright ReadyLift® Suspension Inc.
search for "69-5475" and you see..

Wheel Width: 9" (Meets Criteria to qualify both wheels)

Wheel Backspace: 6.0" (technically should qualify both wheel 1 and 2)

Max Tire Size: 35x12.5 (this barely disqualifies the #2 tire which has a width of 12.91"...however, the #2 tire might be fine if you use the 5.75" backspaced wheel which should put the tire 1/4" further away from the frame of the truck)

Before anyone asks...I am considering this lift kit because i liked "TundraRunsDeep's" results with 35" tires. I like the stance his truck has. I like that the kit is minimally invasive and easily reversible. I like that it doesnt require any cutting, welding, or other permanent modification. I liked that its easy to install, and simple, and shouldn't molest driveability or ride quality much.

I am considering this tire because i drive 90% on pavement and 10% off rode. So I would prefer a quietness and smoothness on pavement over offroad performance. The bigger of the two tires is about 30% more expensive than the smaller one for some reason. On one hand I wouldnt mind paying extra for a bigger tire. But on the other hand, paying extra for a bigger tire that ends up causing me to have rubbing issues that i could have avoided by getting the cheaper smaller tire will make me want to knock myself in the peter.

And i am constricted to these wheel sizes because its one of the only truck wheels that I actually LIKE and not just tolerate.

Anyone have any first hand knowledge/experience that can help me rule some of these options out and leave me with my setup?

Does yours rub at all?

How is the road noise from the toyo at2's on pavement? noticeable?

how is the ride quality? pretty smooth? or lumpy?
