Question Stock steels with bigger tire Pics

Hey I'm new sorry. I own a white 05 2.7L 5-lug. I know the biggest tire size on your stock 15s is 235/75/15. Was wondering if anyone can please post some pics of there truck with big tires on your stock wheels. I heard you can do the "black box" mod and put even bigger tires without rubbing.

~Thanks

I did the black box mod, but I am pretty sure it was not necessary.

225 is a good size, hasn't bogged the truck down at all. Still rolls around great.

I did paint the rims. I rattle canned them.

From my understanding it's these black boxes that connect to the mud flaps or something if we had the pre runner or 4x4 but since we dont I don't think you need them. If someone could clarify to me also that would be rad.

I do not have a lift. The LT235/75R15 fit without any modifications, however i did do the black box mod before the tires were put on, thinking that i would need the extra clearance. I love my Yokohama tires, but i don't do any real offroading or anything. I noticed the ride was a little stiffer and i think it is because the tires are "LT" rated and not "P" like the stock tires are. The "LT" have a stiffer sidewall and are for light trucks, i believe. Someone can correct me if I am wrong about that.

I would like to get bigger shoes for mine. Those 225/70R/15 are just too damn shitty.

Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor 235/75/15's on my 2012.




No lift. No black box mod. No rubbing at all. Very happy with this tire size on my truck.

i put 225/75/15 because they were taller than 225/70.if you chech the 225/75 is taller than the 235/70.also with the 225/75 i got what i feel is respectable look without any lack of power from the ratio change these mods will make.i will post i have a 12 with kumho on it.

Matt - Thanks, man! These are great trucks, and the tire swap just makes them better. Much more capable on, and especially off road.

Tnguyen - 235 is the tread width measurement, 75 is the sidewall height, and 15 is the wheel diameter. The difference between 75 and 70 is just sidewall height, with the 70 being a little shorter.

Hammer - Looking forward to seeing your '12.

Gabass - Check out my earlier front tire pic... the black box mod removes the "bulge" sticking out in the wheelwell... near the bottom at the rear where it's close to the tire during a turn. 235's are about 29" tall, with the black box mod I hear you can fit 30 x 9.50 tires.

Another one of my truck with the 235's.
