Hey what's up I need to know how much suspension lift would be needed to eliminate tire rub inside wheel well and fender flares, also frame rub when at max turning.  Tires are 285/75/16

I have a three inch lift on my 1998 Tacoma and my 33's fit just fine. Toytec adjustable coils in the front and the 3 inch All Pro suspension kit in the rear. Im not sure of the exact specs of the tires width wise (I'm kind of a dunce when it comes to that) but they tuck up into the fenders amazingly well while going offroad. Took it to Moab, UT and it never rubbed once. Good luck!

I have 2 1/2 inches on my 01 Tacoma and it doesn't even come close to rubbing on the inner fenders/wheel wells with 32s on, more than enough room for 33s. It does, however, rub like crazy on the frame without a wickedly offset wheel. I can't tell from that little tiny pic, does that have 6 bolt wheels? If so, your best bet is to find a set of rims off a 6 bolt Chevy, they've got more offset than anything that ever came on a Toyota and most of the aftermarket stuff is advertised as a "Chev" wheel. The wheel center will need to be ground out a tiny bit to fit on your Taco but you absolutely need the offset or they'll rub full cut on your frame (driver's side especially for some reason...). If it's got those silly new 5 bolts that Toyota seems to like now, you're on your own cause I've never looked for an offset in those but I'm guessing they're bout as easy to find as hens teeth. Hope this helps :)
