Who has 265/70R17's

Just came to the realization that 70 aspect ratio tires are cheaper than the stock 65 ratio. In fact, it looks like they are a the same price as the stock tires that come on the 16 inch factory wheels. Just wondering who is running 265/70R17's. Do you notice any difference? Did you need to cut anything? I was pissed at the cost penallty of having 17" wheels on my TRD but if I can get away with 70s, maybe I won't be so pissed?

They fit fine, no trimming needed. I think that's as big as you can go without getting a lift and cutting shit. Replaced my stock tires with barely 3k on the truck so I can't really comment on how they affect gas mileage.

I ran that size when my truck was stock. It'll fit with no trimming, but possibly needing to remove the front mudflaps if you go offroad

Thnaks for the info,

Eventually I am planning to get a 3" lift of some sort and plan to keep the same size tires. All I really need is a bit of ground clearance for washed out logging roads so I am not really that interested in loosing MPGs for 285s. Do you supposed I could go to 265/75 on 17's. I don't even know if that size exists or what the price is. Looks like I might just stick with 70 a.s. I would keep the stock wheels even if I did lift it.

Pic would be great.

I'm running that size on my winter tires. Haven't noticed any rubbing yet with the aftermarket rims. Looks good and handles well in the winter stuff so far.

Yeah that is a pretty good deal. I paid about $700 installed, and I thought that was a pretty good deal.
