Tire advice 1998 Tacoma 15" to 16" Rims & Tires

The first two pictures are of my son's 1998 Tacoma. He currently has Maxiis Big Horns that are 32 x 11.5 x 15". The Big Horns are getting cupped and vibrating. He is going to leave them mounted for hunting season.

His truck has Bilsteins 5100 set at 2.5" on the front and 5100 on the rear with factory springs.

The last picture is a TRD Offroad rims off of a 2010 Tacoma that I purchased yesterday from a fellow TW member.

1.) What is the best all terrain tire that will balance easy and long life for the 16" rim?
2.) What is the biggest tire that will fit without scraping?
3.) Anyone know of a place to get a good deal on good tires?

Thanks for your help,

Killer

I would avoid sticking another tire over 11" wide on those rims. The big horns come in a 255/85 -16 which will fit nice on the OR rim. That's a 33" tire. You may have to do some minor trimming of the plastic though.

I'm actually surprised you got that 11.5" wide tire in there on a stock wheel without it hitting the UCA.
