Teraflex levelling kit with 265/65/16
 
Just wondering how this combo would look.
The tires are new, so I'm not gonna be buying any more anytime soon.
Would it make the tires look small and out of place?

It will look good. Maybe tires will look a little small but overall will be ok IMO. I have it, going to sell as I am upgrading, but well worth the money. Just do it...

Thank, my tires are actually 265/75/16 :facepalm:
Would adding the kit cause any problems with the stock wheels?... back spacing wise

Backspacing is determined by your wheels. The stock wheels have a bs of 6.25". Are you planning on putting the tires on stock rims?

Vertically, you'll be fine with that size tires on stock rims and the TF leveling kit. However, the kit comes with new front swaybar links. Since your 265's will be about a 1/2" wider than the stock tires, you MIGHT rub the swaybar links. I'm not 100% sure, but I'd check with somebody who sells a lot of the leveling kits, like Dave at Northridge 4x4.

Or PM the Teraflex rep here on the forum.

If I had to guess, I'd say you'll be fine. But better to check and find out before spending your $$. :thumb:

Try this calculator out. Plug in the stock tires that say a Rubi would come with then compare the 265/75 16s you have. I think you will be just fine personally. If not you could always get some spacers like I did. I fit a 12" wide tire on stock rims with spacers. I had 305/60 18s on stock rims, with TF leveling kit and 1.5" Spidertrax spacers. Ran great, only rubbing was on extreme articulation.... I still have the spacers, tires and stock rims on till i lift and swap for my 35s. If you want a pic PM me with email address....

I got the same tire setup just put on TF leveling kit on today but my BS is 4.25 or 4.50 cant remember . with stock rims without kit the tire didnt rub either .

I guess I should clarify, I have the tires already mounted on the stock rims (had them for about 3 weeks now) I should have stated that at the start...sorry.

I think you will be just fine, they are not much wider than the stockers you replaced.

I think you will be fine, I got the TF leveling kit with my stock tires and wheels.
The tires are 255/65/17 I think.
