Ha I've ran 2 sets now, and i'm convinced there are several better tires out there for the money.
The Grabber AT2 is a good choice, but if it were me, I'd definitely rock some 285's since youre lifted now. The 265's are less than an inch taller than the stock tires. I even think 285's/33's are too small, hence why I went to 35's on my 07 with 3" lift.
Even look at Randy's 255/85's. They're a true 33 and dont even look very big on his lifted rig.

Trying not to pollute you thread with pics of mine, here's what it looks like without any flex.

That depends on if you installed the all pro 3in leaf pack or not.
The front looks good , the rear looks low (or Bro).

That's why I cropped them down to just the tires & wheel wells.
200lbs of soap & still stock in the back, I was hoping it was something like that.

Just wait it out until you find a set of tires on CL you like.

http://reno.craigslist.org/pts/2789606776.html

See if he'll part tires from wheels

http://reno.craigslist.org/pts/2818928770.html

Check tread on these and then buy two to match if they're close to new.

You don't need them for that size. Are you just getting them for the wider stance? All 4 or just the front?

I have all four. With two sets of lug nuts. One set never used. When I got my lift on, the stock 265s I had on there looked small so I put my dads stock 17" tundra wheels with 285s. Stock backspacing so I got the 1.25" WSs to give it a wider stance. (didn't have money for new wheels and tires at the time.) then before winter hit I was able to get new wheels and tires. Wheels with 4.5 backspacing was pretty much the same as stock wheels with the 1.25" WSs. So I was mainly using them for backspacing so my truck would look a little more aggressive. And it did, just enough so when I parked next to stock tacomas you could deffinetly tell the difference. Plus the tires are tucked on there so far. I think it looks good when the tire stick out to the fender or past. But not to far then it looks ghey..........

Looking good Sloan. A much better pic than the 200lb of soap Bromobile. Have you tried Pyramid Puddle yet. There's a vid of me doing it in my build thread.
