you're probably gonna rub bad with that setup. my buddy runs 33x12.5's on 15x8's w/ 3" suspension and 2" body and he rubs pretty bad. with the extra inch of width on the tires and the wider rims, you're gonna rub like crazy

LOL, uh, yea, you'll have major rubbing with those w/o about 8" of lift. Even pounding the pinchweld won't keep them off the fenders and in the rear you'll start ripping off your fender flairs.

And, unless you have rims with around 2.75-3" of backspacing, maybe less, you won't clear the spindle towers much less the frame rails on full-lock turns.

good luck.

friend of mine ran 33x13.50 tsl's on 10in rims with just a 3 in body lift on his 03 4x4. yea it rubbed. but not THAT bad. mudding in straight line= no rubbing depends on what you do.

I have a 3.5" Fabtech Perf... Downey 3" leaf packs(really 4"). & a TM 3" body lift. I have 33x14.50x15 SSR's on 15x10's, they rubbed the pinch welds at full turn when in reverse. The front was a forced modification...I hit a deer, it jumped into the side of the fender & got caught in the wheel well and wound up ripping off the valence. I've downgraded to 33x12.50x15 BFG AT/KO's on 15x8's

But, I never got stuck, looked good, and got the worst gas mileage (10-12 MPG).

BTW...check the MFG's website for the ACTUAL diameter! Mine were 33.4"

it depends on the backspacing on your wheels. the less backspacing = less rubbing for you. stock bs is around 3.75 i think most ppl with aftermarket wheels have about 3.5 -3.25 inch of bs. with the 13.5 i would hope you have at most 3" of bs for minor rubbing...

stock bs on all Tacomas is 4.5"
the less backspacing you go with the more lift is required to keep the tires out of the fender edges.

Heytenor is right. The width of the tire and the backspacing on the rim makes all the difference in the world. I ran 31x12.50x15 thornbirds on 15x10's stock no lift. It hit the front valance pretty bad but wasn't unbearable. It was ok for normal driving but any sharp turning and I was hitting. But a friend of mine runs 32x10.50x15 tsl radials on stock rims no lift and doesn't hit at all. PULL THAT 2" BODY LIFT OFF AND PUT ON A 3" BODY LIFT. That will give you 6" of lift I think you will be close put alright with that setup.

No way on a 10 inch rim,Mabye on an 8 inch rim with lots of pinch weld hammering. If u get the B/S just right u might can get away with not to major rub.

I have 2.5" Cornfed Spacers and a 2" Body Lift on my tacoma and im running 33 x 12.50 Thornbirds, which measure out to almost 14 inches, on 15x10s and they rub a little bit.
