I'm buying a 2012 Tacoma dbl cab 4x4 that is coming with the 18" optional wheel. Before I make the purchase I want to know if I can put on 275/65/18 Duratracs on this optional 18"Tacoma wheel without any lift. I don't want to mess with chopping, suspension, etc, yet. I love the duratrac's and want to make sure I can get them on this truck.
Otherwise I might just tell them to swap my 17" wheels (in bad shape) on my trade for the 18" wheels. They I can just get the 265/70/17 Duratracs and not have to worry about chopping, suspension, etc.
I did compare the two sizes (265/70/17 which are suppose to fit stock with no modifications and 275/65/18 which I may be coming my new truck) and found same small difference in sizes. The million dollar question for me is does this small difference in size take a 265/70/17 tire (one that will fit on stock TRD without any cutting/trimming/lift) to a 275/65/18 tire that no longer fits on stock TRD without cutting/trimming/etc.
Does anyone have 275/65/18 duratrac tires on the optional 18" stock Tacoma tire or an 18" wheel with the same backspacing with no lift, spacers, etc?
Any thoughts on this?
