Dear Discount Tire,

First let me say I friggin' love Discount Tire. I would never consider buying a tire you didn't carry. The service and the number of locations nation-wide is hard to beat.

Okay. I have a 2010 Tundra with stock 18" wheels, and an OME suspension lift.

I would like to run 285/75R/18 tires. Will they fit and what, if any modifications will I need...I'm hoping none.

Currently, I'm looking at the Toyo AT2's, but I might hold out for the new Faulken's I'm seeing advertised.
Thank you for the post, MYT1. We appreciate your continued support of Discount Tire :cool:

285/75R-18 tires mounted on the factory wheels will require some easy modifications. You'll likely need to trim or bend the factory skid plate and remove the front mud flaps. You also may need to push the front fender liner forward.

Discount Tire,

I'm not interested in having the tire/wheels stick out too much, flush with the fender (or close to it) is the look I'm going for. How would the following set up look?

Fuel Auza 18x9, +20mm offset
For tire size, either 275/70/18 or 295/70/18 or 305/65/18 (with minimal mods)

Second question - the truck is my daily driver (in the winter, several trips to the mountains to ski), tire considerations;
Nitto Terra Grapplers or G2's,
Toyo Open Country R/T
Duratracs or other suggestions

Could I get the following from Discount Tire once I narrow down my options?

Thanks in advance!
Thank you for the post, Neil Christiansen.

Your local Discount Tire can certainly help you with any of the products noted above. Just bear in mind, we do not carry Toyo or Fuel wheels so these brands will have to be ordered in.

As for the fitment, the 18x9 +20 Anza will sit 2" further out towards the fender when compared to where the factory wheels sit now, which according to out specs places the front edge of the wheel about 1/2" past the fender (not including the tires). With 275/70R-18 tires installed you should only have remove the mud flaps. The 295/70R-18 and 305/65R-18 tires will require you to remove the mud flaps and push the front fender liner forward; no modifications to the body should be needed. If you go 295/70R-18, a leveling kit is recommended.

Thank you!

What +offset would I need in order for the wheel/tire combo to set almost flush with the fender? If I can't find a wheel I like with your suggested +offset, if I stick with a +20mm offset which tire stays closer to the fender - 295/70/18 or 305/65/18?

Thank you again.

Happy to help!

A 9" wide wheel with a +35mm offset will keep the edge of the wheel just inside the fender.

As for the tires, the 275/70R-18 would be first, then the 295/70R-18, followed by the 305/65R-18.

Sorry for the piece email questions but I think I'll be done after this one...

I believe the stock wheel measurements (TRD wheel on '14 Tundra) has a +60mm offset and is a 8" wide, I think. If so, keeping that wheel could I run either the 295/70/18 or 305/65/18 tire and achieve my goal of keeping the wheel/tire combo flush with the fender?

You mentioned Discount Tire didn't carry Toyo tires but do you carry Nitto's?

Lastly, is there a wheel(s) that Discount carries that come is a +35mm offset? That would help limit my search.

Thank you!

You are correct, the factory wheels are 8-inches wide with +60mm offset. You can run 295/70R-18 tires on the factory wheels but the 305/65R-18 is a little wide; we suggest an 8.5-inch wide wheel minimum for this size. With 295/70R-18 tires, you will need to trim or bend the skid plate and remove the mud flaps. You'll also may need to push the front fender liner forward.

As for tire brands, we do not carry Toyo tires but like you noted, we do offer their sister brand, Nitto.

When it comes to our aftermarket wheels options, we do not carry any 18x9 +35 wheel models but Fuel and XD offer a few models each. We do not carry these two wheel brands but we can special order either for you.

Hello Discount Tire!

I have a 2008 Tundra 4WD TRD Crew. It's currently sitting with stock wheels and height. I'm looking at installing Bilstein 5100's in the front, probably on the middle setting so I'll still have a slight rake. I have a line on a used set of MB Torque wheels, in 18x8.5. The seller isn't sure of the offset, but all I can find mentioned online are versions in 10mm. Not sure if there is more info on the wheel to identify what it is?

How far would the tire/wheel extend past the fender? 10mm offset is not what I would have chosen, but the price is right.

I'd like to run something like a 295/65-18 or bigger. What sizes (biggest?) are possible with little to no trimming/modifying. Would a 305 fit? Not sure if that's a good idea on 8.5" wheel?

Would also like your opinion on running the 5100s . . . any downsides or negatives? Anything additional needed, like a diff drop?

Was also wondering what folks tend to do for a spare. Is the factory spare usable up to a certain size tire? Is there a max height difference you shouldn't exceed?

Thanks, and really appreciate your time to help us all out!

Hey discount! Thanks for the support and the excellent customer service.

I am purchasing a 2016 4x4 CrewMax with a pro comp stage 1 lift from my local dealer. They are letting me chose wheels and tires and I really liked the BMF wheels.
The ones I want come in a 20x9 +0 or a 20x10 -19. I plan on eventually doing those brush guards on the fenders soon, and am worried about my wheels being "sunken in" once those are on.
Would a 20x10 -19 on a 35/12.5/20 stick out quite a bit or rub? Any idea how far past the fender they will stick out with the tires? Thanks so much!!!

This combination will definitely give you the rugged look :cool:

As far as fitment goes... the +12mm offset on the wheel is slightly aggressive, even with the factory tire size. That said, you may have to trim the front mud flaps to avoid tire rub.

Offset and backspacing are the same thing.
Be careful, they are not the same thing; I.E. a 20mm offset does not equal 20mm of backspace. Offset and backspace are essentially two different ways of looking at the same thing, though. They determine the location of the wheel and tire assembly when bolted to the vehicles hub. (how far in - tucked, or how far out they will sit)

Hi Discount Tire - thanks for supporting the board. I am soon going to be running a 2017 Platinum CM with a TRD Pro suspension. I am looking at aftermarket wheels, either 18" or 20" with +25 or +18 offset.

Can you please help me narrow in on larger-than-stock tires that would work here? I'm ok with minor mods like flap removal, but want to avoid a BMC.

Thanks!

Thank you for reaching out to us, jleonk-

With a mid offset, 275/70R-18 and 275/60R-20 are solid sizes to consider and should only require minimal mods. Depending on the rim width, you can go wider as well; 295/65R-18 and 305/55R-20 are popular choices.

DT,

I've got a 2016 Limited CM 4x2 with a TRD Pro suspension and sticking with 20" rims. I'm looking @ the Black Rhino Savannah 20x9 + 20 offset.

Am considering a 275/60R-20 tire.

Id prefer nearly flush as possible, without any rubbing issues or just remove the front mudflap.

Is this possible with the rim/tire setup? If not any recommendations?


Thank you

Thank you for touching base with us, willyy1-

According to our measurements, this 20-inch assembly will sit just outside of the fender by ~0.25-inch. The only modification needed will be trimming/removing the front mud flaps.

PM coming your way.

A little different question, DT...
Just purchased an 08 DC 2WD with 275/60/20 Falken ATs and a Rough Country leveling kit. Dealer has agreed to remove the cheap LK. Don't know the non-stock wheel specs but the tires are outside the fenders and there is a little rub on the mud flaps when I'm backing & turning, which I can live with. Will the tires rub worse after LK removal?
