Are we still limited to 33-ich tires like on the Gen 3 or can Gen 4 Tacomas run a bigger size?
It seems that 33 inches is the biggest you can go without a lift kit of some kind or cutting some metal.
So, Can The Taco Ride On Larger Tires?
With a huge tire upgrade, the Tacoma can now fit even larger aftermarket tires with less work.
On the previous-generation Tacoma, off-roaders keen on fitting 35-inch tires (or larger) and articulate the suspension needed to contend with aftermarket lifted suspension kits and even chopping and relocating the front body mounts. Will fitting 35-inch tires be any easier on the 2024 Tacoma? The short answer is... kind of.
Even though the largest factory tire on the 2024 Tacoma is larger than those on the outgoing Tacoma, there is no way around it—you'll have to cut some metal to fit bigger tires if you try and go big without adding any suspension lift. Toyota, however, should be offering a factory approved lift kit—like those it introduced on the previous-gen model—to help make space for bigger tires, likely without any of the body-mount shenanigans required on past Tacomas.
Until then, we're confident the aftermarket will help you raise your new Taco higher off the ground... After all, with the new Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison landing just this week with available 35-inch tires, the midsize aftermarket will be racing to stuff 35s or even 37s underneath the latest crop of off-roaders, Tacomas included.
