TRD Shocks & Struts with 225/45/18?
Before I spend $$ on the "TRD Shocks and Struts Set" and rims with 225/45/18 tires, does anyone foresee any issues such as the tires rubbing or bottoming out?

If anyone has any pics, that would help too. wink

Thanks!

That seems like a pretty big tire for an import..maybe you should look into a 40series..

Tires are too tall, it's gonna throw your speedometer off. Go with a 225/40

The TRD Tires/wheels set uses 225/40s, so you'll wanna stick with that. You'll only have rubbing issues if you get the wrong offset wheels.
