      My 285/75r18s measure 34” on the truck.

      And thanks for the flap link. I’m going to take off my factory ones to get rid of the bump out in them, and wondered which ones you ordered.
    • joseywales
      Yours are good quality spacers, but they are just an added point of failure. I have a set for this Tundra and ran them for a short while until I found wheels as my tires were to big to go without. I might look at 285/70R18s as I really want to...

      I now understand your reservations! I may accelerate getting some Methods with the offset I want to replace the steelies after reading about your experience.

      Well, I have had a spacer fail on my previous Tundra, resulting in a 35” Mickey Thompson doing 75 down the oncoming lane of highway, and a 4 day hotel bill while waiting for parts to repair damage, as well as almost losing a dual off my 3500 with...

      joseywales replied to the thread TRQ vs OEM side mirrors.
      Mine are the chrome ones, and it looks the same. The BSM light was lit nonstop on the P-Side replacement, but my wife did hit a tree after hitting black ice at 60 mph, so it’s possible something else was damaged in my door. I just nipped the...

      Thanks for the reply. I was hoping to avoid spacers and be able to use my factory 18s. I have a set, and they are fine, but I tow and do long distances so I guess I’ll stick with the aftermarket wheels I have (Fuel). I’ll probably get a bit...

      I’ve been dealing with insurance on getting a bullbar to replace my factory bumper, and if you take OEM parts in consideration, they would cover an ARB, but with “certified aftermarket” parts, it’s about 1/3 the cost. Depending on how the...

      I just replaced the P-side mirror on my 2019 Tundra Platinum. Just ordered one off Amazon, it is not bad looking, but the BSM doesn’t work, powerfold doesn’t work, and there is no turn signal in it. I CAN however now at least see out of the...

      I find it funny that everyone complains about fuel economy in these trucks. Its like they’ve never driven a V8 4x4 before! I ran Dodge Cummins trucks for the last 25 years, with a short stint in a 1992 F350 with 460 and 35s. Now THAT was a...

      Agreed, I've had a 10 minute brake job turn into a 3 day affair due to breaking bolts. At this point I think I'm just socking away money to replace it with a used 200 series or wait and see what's coming out in 2024. I made it through my commie...

      Honesty is always the best way to roll, and I didn’t mean you should not tell people what you know. But things like the tires look ok in the photos, so let people make up their own minds on them, rather than having them think they need to drop...

      I appreciate your replies! Thank you. It's just been sitting a while and am wanting to move on another 80 series. Decided to drop it to $5,900, matching the other prices we saw. I figure the condition is not as good as some of them, but the...

      Other than the fact it's not a Land Cruiser and it does not have a solid front axle. :meh: Yes, I am a dinosaur. I freely admit it. Real men don't eat quiche and real 4WDs have a solid axle on both ends.

      I paid $8500 for mine at the height of the craziness, and am in the same market area as you. It’s an ‘03 but has the same milage as yours. It also had a fresh OEM timing belt done, and the following done in the previous 5-10,000 miles: Toytec...

      Wheels are out there, but none are inexpensive. Anything in the proper bolt pattern and in a quality brand should work, as there are not any other applications I’m aware of in our pattern, so all that are available should be designed for Tundra...

      My friend had a “collision with water” (insurance catchphrase for “oops, that creek was deeper than I thought!), and had his 5.7 replaced, and trans, t-case and both difs rebuilt by Toyota. It was a $19,900 repair bill. I’ll keep my fingers...

      Since your question is basically the same as in your other thread from Dec 5th, I’ll give basic the same answer: The ‘07 Tundra came with the 4.7 as an option (I believe it was the default choice, with 5.7 as an option), so it should be a...

      joseywales replied to the thread FAQ needed?.
      It’s not like this section gets a ton of traffic at this point, so to be honest, I for one don’t mind seeing a few similar threads. Let’s face it, if people aren’t “on it” enough to Google search the common stuff, maybe they NEED our help:flush:

      Call Kurt at Cruiser Outfitters. He should know what you need, and likely has it.

      Looks sweet! Which 285s, and what’s the rub like? Spacers or just stock? I run 35x12.50-18s on mine and the rub is a tad obnoxious with 2.75” of lift. I’ve run factory wheels with 1.5” spacers and now have Fuels with a bit too much poke...
