How big w/ out a lift?

This may be a stupid ? but would anyone know off hand how much bigger (plus 1,plus2,etc.) that you can go tire/wheel size w/out having to get a lift? I have a 2008 trd off road double cab. Or can anyone recommend a good place to go? i went by discount tires but they weren't much help
thanks for the help

Should be able to get a 265/75 with no problem. Maybe some minor rubbing.

Tons of threads with this question but, yes a 265/75R16 is the max size, or an equivalent like a 265/70R17, etc. with aftermarket wheels you may have to either trim or remove your mudflaps to keep from rubbing depending on the backspace/offset, on a stock wheel i dont think there's an issue with it.

I installed BFG A/T KO tires 265/70/17's on MotoMetal 955's and there is a lot of rubbing. I'm gonna remove the mud flaps, at least until I install Bilstein 5100's.

Well, I removed the mud flaps. No dice. Still rubs quite a bit. I guess I'm gonna have to take it easy until I can get a couple of Bilstein 5100's installed up front.

My friend has TRD Sport with BFG TA KO 265/70/17 on stock 17 x 7.5" alloys. Really fills the wheel well, no rubbing of any kind.
