got the tires for an unreal deal from craigs list sooo had to put them on ! YES! some rub while hard turn in reverse.BUT...this IS before lift! I think toyota must not have all mounts placed the same as some people seem to have MORE rubbing issues.I did chop them good or these would not turn.

It's magic. Everyone else with 35's, body mount and suspension upgrade can still get a rub here and there. But this rig and tire combo is magically different...
Glad to see there are SPECIAL people whom still believe in magic! lol:clap:

Since youre experiencing rub already why woudnt you lift? you could wait for another deal on Craigslist for the lift? (if budget is an issue but use the original size tire first).

your Craigslist savings might cost you more in the long run.....

I'm not the one who is driving around with 34's, no lift, no chop and "believe" it will work. You are the on who believes in your special kind of magic...

interesting. must be toyota's lack of quality control on the location body mounts....

i run a 32.7"x11.5" tire with my front end up 2.5" above stock, and i still get a slight rub here and there, when backing up usually.

There's also the issue of "full compression" when going over an obstacle and experiencing articulation of those rear tires. When you've taken that rig out in the country and put it through its paces, let us know what you found.

The stock tires are ~31.7" in diameter.
