The most common setup we are seeing that is compatible with a leveling kit is going to be about a 32-inch tire. The 32-inch diameter generally seems to be paired with a 9-inch width aka 275/65.  This shouldn't require you to cut or trim with a leveling kit on your 3rd Generation Tacoma.

As for the wheel choice, the most popular choice seems to be a wheel with a 0 mm offset. This pairing will ensure a fantastic fit and look for your truck. As far as the diameter for the wheel, it seems to be most common to go with a 17 or 18-inch wheel for the off-road aesthetic.

4-Inch Lift

If you are looking to get a little more lift than a leveling kit can provide the next most popular lift choice is a 4-inch lift. This is a great height to get a good amount of ground clearance for off-road performance while maintaining great ride quality. On top of the functionality, a 4-inch lift will give your truck a really nice custom look as well.

The best tire size for a 4-inch lift will be a 33-inch diameter with a 12-inch width. This may rub and require minimal trimming but shouldn't be totally necessary. This will give your truck a meatier look with that thick tire and it will be great off-road for traction.

The wheels that most tend to pair with a 4-inch lift will generally have a more aggressive stance with a negative offset. Again the most common sizes for the wheel will be the 17 to 18-inch diameters to continue the off-road look and functionality theme that Tacomas tend to carry.

6-Inch Lift

A 6-inch lift is for you if you want to turn some heads and stand tall. A 6-inch lift gives the truck a much more intimidating stance and commands attention. A 6-inch lift can still perform great, just keep up with maintenance as things will wear much faster.

The most popular tire size for a 6-inch lift seems to be a 35-inch diameter with 12.5-inch width. This again creates a really aggressive and meaty stance that is sure to be bold.

Wheel sizes to go with a 6-inch lift seem to range anywhere from 17-inches up to 20-inches in diameter. Depending on your style and how much tire sidewall you want to show.
