I have a 2013 TRD double cab and am going to have the 3/1 lift installed this weekend. Along with the lift I want bigger tires. I am going w/ the 18" xd hoss rims but confused about tires. If I go w/ the 33" tires (275/75/18) it sounds like it is very close to stock and nothing on the truck will need to be recalibrated (albeit they may look too small per other forum members). I really want the 34" tires (295/70/18) though, will this require some sort of recallibration to my truck such as the speedometer? I may eventually tow a boat but for now the truck is just driven to and fro work on pavement. Thank you very much for some guidance on this - Billy

According to the tire size calculator, 295/70/18 is 34.3 inches in diameter, whereas 275/75/18 is 34.2. In other words, height wise, they are about the same. Both will need speedometer calibrator.

Tire size varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. Nitto TG at 295/70/18 tends to be larger than 34.3 (more closer to 35).

I second JC's post. Go with 295.

Gotcha and I agree. For the 33's I meant 275/70/18 sorry about that. I guess I can just get Toyota service to recallibrate the speedo at my first 5,000 mile service when I bring her in there. No harm in waiting right? Or am I also adding miles due to the bigger tires? Thanks again for the help - billy

I'm running a 305 65R18 which is shy of 34 inches. I have not recalibrated yet, but will in the near future. I had to bend the skid, remove the front flaps, and still rub in reverse at full lock to which I don't care. I like seeing my passengers jump a little.

No you cant. There is no way to calibrate your speedo/odo other than adding the hypertech in-line speedometer calibrator.

My bad. I should've realized Terra Grappler and Trail Grappler have same acronym. I meant Trail Grappler.

Nice! have you had to do any mods to the mud flaps, or inner wheel well liners? Which offset did you get on the Hoss? I see there are different offsets for that wheel.

Thanks!

So far the only mod was removing the front mud flaps. I am pretty sure the rims are +30 off set. Rims barely jut out past the fender. That is how I asked them to set it for me. Truck loks 10x better in person than my pic if you can imagine that! Hope this helps- Billy
