Side question, what lift do you have on your sport. Looks great!!
I had a bunch of different setups on this 4R over the years I owned it - I don't remember for sure in those pictures what it was set at.

It's a 2015 Trail Edition with KDSS. (old TE is the same as TRD OR now, new TE is an SR5 + appearance package, not sure why Toyota recycled the name.)

Front was Fox 2.5 RR Factory Series set somewhere between 1 and 3 inches of lift depending on the year. Rear had fox 2.0 shocks.

Rear springs were a variety of stock height plus Airlift helpers, Stock height plus Firestone Airbags (better than airlift in this application), GX460 air springs with custom adjustable air system, Dobinsons 2.25" KDSS coils (no longer sold IIRC) and stock coils with 1.5" spacer plus firestone air bags <- that was my ultimate favorite setup for rear coils - just the right amount of lift, softer coils = more flex and better ride, air helpers for when I'm towing/hauling.

You can see about how well it flexes in this video. Does really well IMO on stock coil spring rates.



I towed a few thousand miles with the 275/60/20's too. Never had an issue with them. Doesn't mean they're the best choice for you. Just something that worked for me.

Thanks for the reply! I like the idea of the 265/60r20's but my plan to start with is a 1" front cornfed until the xreas needs replacing. I assume they would rub like crazy with only a mild level.

The rub would be the same with or without a lift. With IFS - if you are not changing the control arms (most lifts dont) tire clearance is the same at any height. They're slightly bigger than a 285/70/17, so you'd need to do the front bumper clearance trimming, but shouldn't need a body mount chop.

BUT - you'll also find that it still is a nicer ride with stock height tires. The transmission/engine tune works better with stock tire height. For actual use for most people it's pretty hard to beat the stock tire sizes. It's easy to over-do it with bigger tires that look great buy make it worse to live with day to day. I think you're on the right track with the more moderate tire size. The extra inch or so in height doesn't really do much for you other than looking a little better. And it has a cost that probably isn't worth it in most cases.
