29 3/4 as close as I can tell.

These are the wheels I'm thinking about painting black and installing. Anyone have any tips for painting damaged chrome wheels. They are 8" wide with 4 1/2 BS from what I can tell, maybe 4 1/4



Hell, anyone know what they are. I picked up 4 on CL for $100. Figured it was worth the chance.

Pic of the damage. I'm wondering if I should just shoot them with self etching primer and black semigloss Krylon. Even debating leaving the tires on as masking.

Thought's or opinions?
New 255/85/16 KM2 on steel 16" x 7", 6 Lug, 5.5" Bolt Pattern wheel

33-1/2" @ 43psi


Used Interco Trxus MT on steel 16" x 7", 6 Lug, 5.5" Bolt Pattern wheel
(tires look brand new...just no knobbys on them. Traded it for Taco stock spare tire & wheel I had laying around......unknown mileage. Tread is super deep compared to a KM2.

33-13/16" @ 43psi



Both measured sitting up level on a level floor. Measurements are from floor to a level that was held level. Pics are just for reference...I only have 2 hands

When I measured my brand new 33x10.5x15 they were exactly at 32" without weight and 40psi.

My bald 255/85/16 cooper ST's measured at 32". With full tread I bet they would have been very close to a full size 33" tire.


Edit: here's some info from a thread about tire height
http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/whe...hey-claim.html
Ill have to check that thread out

Anybody know of anybody running the SCS F5 wheels with 255/85s?

I really want to pull the trigger on some of the 4.5"BS ones but i cant bring myself to do it without seeing the look. More importantly the potential for rubbing scares me.

Anybody got info?

Let's see'em! Toyo open country MT is one of the best tires, IMO. Good choice

Yep. However they are a high mileage tire, maybe 45K in our trucks, so keep that in mind.

That's why I don't have them. I couldn't find a set in my $1k price range (including mounting, balance, and replacement certificates). I settled with my 2nd choice in km2s. My plan was to find the best price online, then have discount tire price match. That way if there are any issues, I'm able to handle it in person. Km2's came in right at $1k and Toyos would have been about $1.3k

FYI, discount tire has a promotion that's good through today. Could do two separate transactions to save $200.

Yes they are. No way I'd pay that much for a tire. Got my KM2's for $190 per tire and I picked them up at Discount tire. We got ten of them and worked a deal with a friend of a friend who has a dealer account. Gave him $10 cash per tire...so $100 for 10 min of his time.

KM2's dealer cost in this size was $180 2 years ago.

IMO high mileage usually means harder rubber so less grip on rocks.

Properly rotated KM2's should get similar mileage.

I paid $195 per tire and after the charge for replacement cert's, tax, and mount/ balance, it came out to just under $1K for 4 new 255's ($960 exactly). I felt like it was a good price considering all the other prices I saw. I had them price match
Www.Onlinetires.Com. At the time they had the lowest prices.
