What size tires, what size wheels?

Just got a new 2011 Tacoma Dbl Cab. The first thing I want to do is get new tires and wheels. Whats the best combo, 265/65 17 or 265/70 16, or is there an even better option? Any and all info would be greatly appreciated. I was also thinking about general AT2 grabbers, any info on those tires.

I think both tire sizes are the same except one tire has a bigger hole in the middle than the other

I just put 265/75/16s on my '11 Friday and they fit great. There is a thread in here some where that explains the sizes. I think with stock suspension 265 is it, on the width.

Agreed. This is the biggest you would want to go without a lift.

I love how everyone wants to stuff the biggest tire they can fit under there rig, not re gear, and than a week later complain about poor gas mileage. Hilarious!

My '11 TRD Sport came with 17's. If I intend to upgrade wheels anyway, you are saying I should go with 16-inchers?
