Hello.

I'm sorry to ask this question because I see it gets asked often but it's such a specific question that when I search I never find the situation that matches me. With rims size or 2WD or lift or pinch weld mods etc, I haven't found my exact scenario. And I've been playing phone tag with Greg at prg for 4 months with voicemails and emails. That guy is too busy or something for a novice consumer like me.

So here's my question and sorry again if you think it's been asked before.

I have a 2007 Nissan Titan 2WD crew cab
Have stock 18 in chrome rims
Have mud guards

I need to buy new tires and I can't afford to buy tires and lift kit at once so what I want to do is buy the tires now then in a few months buy a lift or leveling kit or Bilstein 5100s

What is the maximum size tire I can buy for my stock 18 in rims without having to do any pwm or modifications.

My preference is 35 in tires so I can add a 2.5 in leveling kit and 1.5 rear blocks or Bilstein 5100s at max setting, which I believe is a 2.5 in lift. I have never gone off roading and never will so having a stiff ride won't be a problem since I only drive on streets.

And specifically I am asking for the actual measurements. Whether it's 35 x 12.50 or 295 x 70 or whatever, but I want to keep my mud guards on and not make any modifications.

So I guess either this forum is dead, or no one is answering because there is that "ultimate guide" thread. But that only shows 33" tires for 2wd.

I'm trying to get 34" or 35" on a stock 2007 with stock rims, with mud flaps, and no pwd or other mods. What size works?

You can't fit 35's without at least a 4" lift otherwise you'll hit frame. Very very very few guys have managed to fit with a 3" lift, I think I've seen 2 people that managed it. I'd say 33" is pushing the max since you're 2WD, I wouldn't go 12 wide unless you want to lose the mud flaps and PWM.

You're doing this backwards, giving you much less options. Highest setting on Bilsteins will only get you 2" and the ride will suck horribly.

So, from what you said of not losing the flaps or doing any mods, being 2WD, I would say max is 275/70R18 (stock Pro4X size). This could be found by an easy search of the forum and/or google.

If you want 35's get a 4-6" spindle lift, put 2-4" blocks in the back, lose the mud flaps, throw on 35's.

Thank you for that information, that was really helpful.

OK if 35s are out, how about 34s? Something like 295x70x18? I'm going to get 2.5 inch level for the front and 1.5 inch blocks for the rear. Am also thinking of doing a .5 inch spacer to push the tires out a little. Will the 34s work with that, keeping mud guard on?

You will most likely hit the mud flaps.

On my 2011 pro4x I ran 33x12.5R18 toyo muds on the stock pro4x rims without doing any modifications. But that truck probably sits minimum an inch higher in the front. Zero rubbing at any point of travel with the wheel straight or turning over bumps.
You could always go with the 4x4 springs in the front with the 5100 on the middle perch. I forget what kind of lift the guys were getting with that set up.

I think on a 2WD that will give you 2" of lift up front.

So do the bilsteins only give 1" on a 2wd? Thought it was 1.5 but that's why I ask

Reading that thread they say it should be 1.5" from the bils on middle an 1.5 from the 08 4x4 springs. Dunno

5100's only give 1" and 2" now instead of 1.5" and 2.5", pretty sure it's regardless of 2WD or 4WD.

If he gets Moog 4x4 coils I think that's another .5" over OEM 4x4 coils.

I forgot about the newer bils not adding as much lift.

check if the lower spring perch is stamped steel or billet aluminum. old ones were stamped steel.

They stopped producing the old ones in 2010, good luck finding a pair....Spring perch is black on the old ones vs the silver billet aluminum on the newer ones

OK so if I get the 2.5 levels for the front and 1.5 blocks in the rear, can I get do 34s?

Would any of these work?
325x65x18=34.6x12.8
315x65x18=34.1x12.4
305x70x18=34.8x12.0
295x70x18=34.3x11.6
285x75x18=34.8x11.2
275x75x18=34.2x10.8

first 3 are doubtful. 295/70's will probably rub the frame rails at full lock, not a big deal, i ran them with just a 2" lift on my pro4x. pro4x guys can fit 35's with leveling kit and stock wheels but lots of trimming to make it functional.


whats wrong with a 325/60R18? 33x13.

Just curious, why such a big tire? Are you actually going to use the truck or is it going to be a pavement princess? Because with that big of a tire functionality is going to be significantly reduced.
