Tire Size on Stock 5 Lugger

I am getting ready to purchase a summer tire and wheel package for my 09 stock 5 lug. Can anyone tell me if I will have any rubbing issues with the following 3 tire sizes.

255/60/17
265/65/17
275/55/17

I did a pretty decent search and came up empty. I do see where TC Bob has the 265/65/17 as the largest tire the stock 2nd Gens can run with no issues.

Thank you this is what I am looking for. I may have to back the tire size down to a 235/55/17.

I really do not want to lift the truck as I have no intentions of going off road in a 2WD.

Righto, believe me, I have what you call a "street queen" from what the guys have told me. But the lift made the truck look so much meaner, those damn stock tires and wheels killed the truck!

LOL

Bet the same guys also say that a lift on a 2WD is pointless and I tend to agree with that. I think that for a 2WD it would be all about the look you are trying to achieve. And that is not bad by any means.

For me I just want to be able to carry about 1/2 a scoop of stones, close to 1400 lbs, and not have the truck be unsafe to drive.

I am not too fond of black either. I am looking at some 5 spoke gunmetal. The stock wheels leave a lot to be desired.

Do you have any rubbing issues with your current wheels?

mine stockers were 205/60 or 70 /15. now I have 235/60/18 and there is BARELY any room when I do a full turn to clear the edge of the wheel well hump by the cab.

you might, cut down on the middle size, like put it to a 40.

Thank you for the help.

I am not a fan of low profile tires on my Tacoma. I still need to carry loads and the sidewall height is of concern.
