To be honest the 10.5 is a pushing it a bit. A 9.5 would be perfect. The 10.5 has a bit of a bulge in the tire when you run it on the factory rims. The side walls also get a little squishy. It’s still a pretty solid setup though and you won’t regret it.Thank you! I know progress is slow, but I really do want to make this thing nice again, and put the time and effort and research into doing everything as right as I can. This build is to replace my 2017 Tacoma, and as such, it needs to be reliable, comfortable, capable, and somewhat economical.
I have about $10k in it so far, including every single part I will need to build it, except for paint.
I plan to have the tires mounted next week, I guess I'll be going with BFG KM3's in a 33x10.5x15 on the stock wheels, because no tire shops are willing to try the 33x12.5 or the 35x12.5 on the stock wheels for me, and I really don't want to change the wheels.
So that puts my ideal highway cruising speed squarely at 65mph around 1800-1900 rpm, and 2200-2300 around 75 mph, which should be ok, but mileage will be affected.
