Larger tires on a 2.7 l

Quick question, I wanna put larger tires on my 09-4 cyl, without adding a lift or sacrificing power. I'm thinking about either 30 or 31. Anyone know if this will cause me problems? If so, can anyone recommend a good size?

im running a 225 75 15 on mine and i have no rubbing and didnt notice any power loss, or very little if any.

on rainy days it can still kick out the ass end on pavement. never could on dry days. but its an auto as well.

i have heard you can run a 235 75 but i thought that would be too close for comfort

edit: wait are you referring to a non prerunner version (4x2) like mine? or the regualr tacoma looking 4cyl?

Ok I think I have this maxed out. I have a reg cab sr5 with no lift and I have 255/75/17 with the fj cruiser wheels. I dont rub either. looked like it might before they were installed but no problems. I still have to even out the rake of the front though.

ANY time you increase wheel or tire weight you will lose power. Rotational mass is equal to 4x static weight....or so.

Increasing tire diameter will effectively alter final gear ratio and you will lose bottom end but get better economy cruising by lowering needed rpm to maintain the same speed.


If you alter tire diameter you your speedo will be off....how do we adjust for that with these trucks? I own HPTuners which is a laptop based software that allows me to completely custom tune my GMC...is there OBII software for Toyota?

I put 235/75/15 on my 5 lug with no problems with rubbing at all. Makes the truck look better as well. Haven't noticed any difference in power but I'm not trying to drag race anyone anyway.
