What is the largest size tire I can fit on my 09 Tacoma?

I have a 2009 stock Tacoma reg cab and I am looking to upgrade my wheels and tires. I was looking at tires that were 255 70 16" but the guy at the truck store said they wouldn't fit. I don't have a lift but I have seen some other conversations on websites with people putting 265s on with no lift. I want to make sure I get the larger tire size i want before investing the money. I've been getting mixed views on this subject from different websites so i figured this would be the best place to ask! Will the larger tires hurt my stock suspension in the long run as well?

Its the 2009 regular cab stock 4x2. I don't have a lift. So you can put 265s on this without lifting it and no clearance issues??? How much offset would be required???

The wheels I was looking at also have a 38 offset. Does that reduce the size of the tire I put on?

Are you a 5-lug or 6-lug (prerunner)?
