Today we are going through the most popular aftermarket setups for Toyota Tacomas. These will lay out foolproof fitment so that when you order your wheels, tires, and suspension you know it will fit perfectly the first time.

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.
