Just bought a 2000 trd prerunner. Dealer put 225/70/15's on the truck so yea it looks retarded. I was going to go with 31x10.5x15's but I do plan on putting on a 2.5" toytec lift in the next few months but I'd like to get tires first. My question is will the 32x11.5x15's fit on my stock trd suspension for a few months??? Will it work with the pinchweld mod? Or am I gonna have to wait till the lift gets put on for those tires to fit?

Thanks.

Also, how hard is it to put on the 2.5" lift? Done some basic mechanic work but never really that much on suspensions...

You can fit those tires with the pinch weld, just don't wheel, because you'll still be taking chunks out of your tires.

In regards to your "also"; depends on what 2.5" lift you're talking about. If it involves compressing your coils, give yourself 2 to 3 hours for the front, if you have to compress. If it's an assembled coil over swap, give yourself half an hour. Both easy, just be sure to buy/rent decent coil compressors and have air tools if you have to compress your coils. And for God's sake, don't rush.

It would probably be the toytec 2.5" spacer lift. I've heard its better and safer to have a shop compress them for you so I'd probably do that. Is putting the extra leaf in the back easier than doing the front part of the lift?

I'm just worried how easy those tires will rub, I mean if I drive over a speed bump are they gonna rub and mess up the tires? Or just if I do some pretty bumpy offroading?

And do the 32's make a noticeable difference in gas mileage?

it's noticeable, but not too bad. and the tires will rub pretty bad with no lift...i still rub my 32x11.5's with a 2.5" lift and the pinch weld mod. doesnt rub on the street, just off road. with no lift, you'll most likely rub going over speed bumps

You are going to have some rubbing issues. I have rub with my 32's and about 1.5 inches of lift.

it all depends on your wheel size...if you have the stock 15x7 wheels then yes they will fit with very little rubbing off road and none on road. I had this combination for a while till I put a 3 inch lift on and now I have the same tires with 15x10 wheels and they rub pretty good on road, havent tried them off road yet, but I think they will rub bad, I have done the pinchweld and removed the fenders and they still rub when backing up and turning onroad, so im sure they will rub offroad.

How about those tires on stock 7" wide wheels???
Does an extracab with V6 sit lower than a reg cab with 4banger?
I'm just scared I'm gonna order these tires from tirerack and then they won't fit.

every truck is different...if you're getting the lift soon, just get the tires and deal with it for a little bit

read my post again, I had them on stock 7" wide rims and they work fine..but any wider and they might rub. Im not sure the difference in weight, if there was..Im sure they compensated for it with stiffer front springs or something, I think you will be ok no worries.

Just wait till you get the lift done-

Toyota suspension is very straight forward. Relatively easy with the right tools.
