Smile Need some help here

I was wondering if anyone can help me.........I have a stock 08 TRD Sport Prerunner What is the largest tire I can put on some Dick Cepek DC-1 17x9 rims with 4.53 inch backset. My stock tires are 265x65R17,my rims are 17x7.5. stock tires are too narrow for my new rims.......I do not want to lift or modify my front end............Thank you in advance for your Help.........

In general the rule of thumb is you can go 2" wider or narrower with the tire than the rim. I would suggest you find the tires you want, they should have the specs of the tire along with what rim widths the tire is made for. Just find the one that suits your rims. You should be able to go with a 265/70/17 that would be 31.6" tall.

yeah, i ran 265-70-17 on my 17x9's with 5" BS and 0 offset and they rubbed the front mudflaps a little when turning, not enough to cause damage, just enough to annoy me until i got the lift on. your stock tires should fit too....
