Can stock tires be replaced with larger ones ??

I have a 2006 SR5 TRD 4X4 Crew Cab regular bed that is equipped with stock tires (265 / 70 / 16). Could anybody advise if I could go to a 285 /70 /16 without incurring tire rub. Is it possible to do this without a lift kit or any other change? The truck has had NO modifications. Thanks

Not sure about the 285's, but I believe you can do the 265/75/16's...

Hopefully, others will chime in...

I went w/ the stock size b/c I live in the mountains can't afford any loss of power...

You aren't going to "lose power". I saw absolutely no difference of any kind in going with 265/75/16, including MPG.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Correct. You dont "loose" power, but rather, decrease the leverage the tires have for transfering the torque of the engine into forward motion.

It may not be noticeable, but it in fact does make a difference...

And you are correct, you don't actually lose power motor wise, but the effective gear ratio does change...

I'm waiting until I can afford lower gears, suspension lift, and rims and tires before I go bigger...

Just sayin'

It's science, not an opinion...
