Looks great. I'm guessing Bilsteins set to 2.1" and no spacer in back? I am interested in the wheel specs also. I want these same ones in black and need to know what back spacing allows 12.50 wide rubber. Thanks for posting. 35s on our trucks are perfect size proportion wise.

Absolutely NO rubbing and NO trimming was required!!!

Came home earlier than expected today so I gave it a wash and snapped more pictures. Tank had exactly 1/4 of fuel as it sat. I have a 350 mile round trip planned tomorrow so it'll give me a better idea of ride quality and whatnot. After the lowsy 75 miles I did put on it this afternoon, initial impression is VERY impressed!

HERE are before pics/stance snapped last fall.

If you want a specific pic from a specific angle, ask and I'll oblige. If there's something I missed, again ask.

Do you mind if I call you about the setup that you have? My truck is currently in the paint stage at the factory and should be here in a few weeks. I love your setup but have a few questions.

Thanks,

PS - I tried to send this in a personal message but it will not let me since I am new to the forum (Tundra Convert). I'm sure that it will let you PM me, or just call my number.

WOW! Looks great! I want the same stance...

I find it interesting that your backspacing is 5.71" and those wide tires are that well tucked under and it doesn't rub on the A-arm! I would think we would need -12 offset and 4.5" to at most 0 offset /5" backspace to push those tire lugs far enough away...but maybe I haven't quite grasped the concept of offset/backspacing yet. Looking behind that front tire, are you nearly touching suspension up front?? And fender liner out back? My 07 with 1/4" spacers and those same Toyo MTs would RUB the A-arm a bit (not bad) and the fender liner in back pretty bad on turns when the body flexed a bit...

And set at 2.8" with .5" rake left sits perfect...I think I plan to run my Bilsteins at 2.1" though...just to keep the CV angles as low as I can. If you get a chance please post some photos low from the front showing CV angles and front suspension. I'd like to see how far 2.8" level takes it.

I've never been able to get my head around backspacing/offset numbers to the point where I feel like I understand them comfortably. I do know this though: I've purposly tried to get them to rub since picking it up and simply cannot. They don't rub at any point. Seriously.

I really haven't tucked my head under anywhere to look at what is close and what is not, so no , I'm not sure if it's close to the control arm/wishbone or any other components under there.

I'm leaving for a trip soon and it'll be late by the time I return, so I'll be sure to snap and post the pictures you asked tomorrow.
