I'm just gonna order them from Amazon. I already have an account and they only want $40 for shipping.

Cops usually are a little more strict around here than other parts of Oahu.

Actually I already have recon from when I installed the lift. But the inspector said if I get bigger tires, I have to bring it back and add it to the list. Also I heard that wider flares would have to be bolted/screwed to the fender to pass. I might just give it a shot as. The edge of the last tread block is under the fender, but the side walls do stick out. I actually like the look of the bushwackers tho.
If it was me I wouldn't bother with it. Most cops won't check. If you already have the sticker, one less reason for them to harass you. You'll be surprised, so much work to get recon and cops sometimes don't even ask for the papers. Good luck either way.

It is if you drop a plumb bob from the fender, the furthest out tread block that contacts the road (sidewall tread doesn't count) has to be within that dropped line.

From that picture, I would say you can pass no problem.

Hey Guys I just got my car dealership license and am looking to break into exporting tacomas to the islands. Every time i am out there i am surrounded by Tacos. I figured i would put out the feelers with you guys. How much interest is there in your area for stock tacos or what kind (DCLB, DCSB, etc)

Also might be able to write off business trips to hawaii

Mahalo haha couldn't resist. Thanks guys!

Gotta say its a pretty flooded market. Even Servco Toyota selles their Tacomas at MSRP so not any big mark up. Probably make more off of used cars. But yeah Tacomas are huge in the 808 state, i like to call em the state truck haha. I do also gotta note that your next big hurdle, besides the flooded market, would be that you may find it hard to get a ton of business in Hawaii if your not from here. Trust is a big thing here and most part time residents and visitors dont recieve much of it.

just being honest. good luck, aloha!

You do know that MSRP is a nice size mark up to start with right?

So I am in the market for some new tires for my lill pickup.
What size tires and rims and lift are y'all running. Did it kill you performance ie braking and MPG?

I wouldn't think 265/75/16 would hurt too bad.. Maybe 1-2 mpg at most with all terrains maybe a lil more with mud terrains..

I was thinking about picking up the fj silver wheels but not sure if the dealership still sells em?

Ask Jake. 265x75R16(70R17?) AT's will kill your mileage almost as bad as 285's

It's all about the weight and rolling resistance. The stock tires are something like 28 lbs.? And my 285/75R16 Duratrac's are ~60. Jake's 265 are about 54 lbs. And that is just the tire. You don't lose too much on the highway, I lost about 2mpg with my 285's, but my city driving went from 14 to 10. So my avg right now is 12mpg since I only drive around Kaneohe.

I would say if you are getting AT tires, don't worry about mileage. Only the Michelin's are going to get decent mileage, but it will still be less than stock.
