For whatever reason, I dig large tires on the stock wheels. Not saying I'll never replace my wheels, but at least for now I'm happy with this look.
If you're running larger tires and/or a lift on stock wheels, let's see 'em!

I've got 285/75r16 BFG KO2's on a ~2.5" Bilstein/OME lift.

Any rubbing? Are you running wheel spacers/adapters? Set up looks great!
Rubbing off-road, yes. On the road, no rubbing after I took off the OEM mud flaps. I'm not running spacers but I have the adjustable UCA's. They're on the stock setting still, but I do plan to add more caster. Even the rear rubs pretty bad when stuffing the tires when wheeling.

Gotcha. I need to crank mine up a little too. At full lock on some dips Offroading I’m running as well and I hate hearing it. I’ve also got a -12 offset on my wheels.

Sometimes it's so bad I really gotta hit the gas to keep moving forward, lol. I hope I don't rip my fender lining out. In hindsight, I kinda wish I went a little higher with the lift. I also wish I went with 35's...

Can’t wait to get the 285’s under mine! Im still running stock UCA’s so I’ll get something with less back spacing! Looks great!

Looks great, I'm a fan also.
I had planned on doing exactly this, since I got some 16" TRD Pro wheels for cheap.

Can you tell me more about your Bilstein/OME lift?

Thanks for the info Tyler!

Is there anything you don't like about your set up (other than the lean I read about)?
I'm asking because I realize people get lifts for different reasons.

I'd personally like something to give me a little more ground clearance, looks good aesthetically, and most importantly - will ride good both on and off road.

There’s nothing I don’t like except for the taco lean. The front could be a little higher too but I’m fine with it. I really abuse this suspension and it works well.

I'm considering powder coating my stock wheels and getting a set of winter tires.

Definitely stretches the life of your good tires and keeps your good wheels from getting beat.
