Question 4 banger tires

Does anyone happen to have experience putting larger tires on a 4 cyl 2 wheel drive. Was tryin to get some idea about how much larger than 205-70-15 I can go and not take too much away from low end power.
Thanks

Any tire larger than stock will have some impact on low end power. The impact gets larger the more tire you put on. There are 4 cylinder Tacos that are running 31 x10.50s but the drivers tell us they can feel the impact. Unless you plan on some serious mud boggin' I'd not get too froggy with tire size.

The TacomaWorld tire calculator will tell you the effect a new tire will have over the stock tire.

And IIRC the standard tire is a 215-70-15, not a 205.
