So you own a 2014-2019 Toyota Tundra and it's finally time to put some wheels and tires on it. But how do you know what's going to fit? You could spend a few hours browsing forums to find fitment specs OR you could stick around and take a look at our very simple guide where we show you exactly what is going to fit! We're going to talk about what fits a Tundra with a leveling kit, a 3-inch lift kit, and a 6-inch lift kit!

One of the most common choices when customizing a Toyota Tundra is a leveling kit. This will lift up the front of your rig to match the back factory rake. This will give your rig a more symmetrical look, give you a little more ground clearance, and allow you to fit a slightly bigger tire.
The most common wheel size we see to pair with a leveling kit on a Tundra is a 20x9” wheel. This is just big enough to make your rig stand out and look unique, while still allowing for a lot of sidewall to show from your tires. This allows you to perform off-road and have that sidewall to grab at the mud, rocks, and more.
As far as tires go with a leveling kit it seems that most people stick between 33 and 34-inch tires. This is what will fit the rig without having to trim or cut and have no rubbing when you turn or drive.
The width usually comes in at around 11-12-inches for a meatier look that will give your rig an aggressive presence. This will also mean more tire on the ground to give you traction and stability. Paired with this size wheel we see the 295/60R20 being the most common size.

A 3-inch lift kit will be a great size to get you an upgraded look, while still achieving maximum performance and comfortability. This won't be over the top, but will still give you great ground clearance and drive quality.
Along with the 3-inch lift, the most common wheel size we see is again the 20x9. Again this will be a big enough wheel to make it stand out while still giving you enough tire for use off-road. And it will make for a great new look on the rig.
Finally, the tire size that is most common seems to be 305/55R20. Again, a 33-34-inch diameter, but you do have the choice to fit a larger tire because of the extra lift over the leveling kit. The width most commonly seen seems to be 12-12.5-inches.
This will give the rig a very full look. Remember that when you get larger with tires that it will affect your speedometer, odometer, gas mileage, brake-time, and more.

The last suspension system that is really popular for a Tundra seems to be a 6-inch lift. This is the lift that will get your attention on the roads.
It will look a little more flashy and fun. This doesn't mean that it can't still perform though. You will have maximum ground clearance and can fit much larger wheels and tires. Tower over everyone.
The most popular wheels to go with a 6-inch lift on a Tundra is a 20x12 -44. This means that it will be the same diameter as before, a little bit wider, and a negative offset to poke the wheel out a bit. Be careful when you go offroad with mud or water getting in the lip of the wheel.
The tire size option that is seen most with a 6-inch lift is 35x12.5”. With this extra space from the higher lift, you can fit this larger tire with no rubbing or trimming. You'll have even more sidewall! The thick width will also make for a super aggressive build and make your Tundra an absolute machine.
