Tire clearance on 2005+ Tacoma

I am not sure if this has been discussed yet, but does anyone know how large of tires you can get away with on a 2006 Tacoma with 16 inch rims. I am not impressed with the factory tires and am thinking of replacing them with some BFG's. I want to go with 265/75R/16, but I do not know if I will have clearance issues.

Anyone upsize their factory tires yet? Thanks,

SAM

suggestions: 35" with a 3" lift. i have 295/40/20's custom wheels. so it is your preference.

You shouldn't have any problems with that size tire, your only going to have a total of a 1 inch increase in tire diameter, 1/2 inch radius isn't going to make that much difference.

oops

I have 16" Rav4 rims. not highlander, don't know if that matters.
They are chromed and will show off the white and Chrome rear bumper very nicely. not too tiajuana i hope!
Tire size...?
A buddy says since my stock size is 215-70-15,
I could go with a 205-65-16 and not mess up the speedo and odometer.
i think I am already 3mph slow on the speedo ....
what size do I go with?
This could be a crap shoot!
I am still thinking a 215-65-16, maybe a 235-65-16.

HELP !!!

what do you think

thinking about upgrading from stock steel rims to a sequoia rim, it's 17'' x 6'' is this a good option for an 07 double cab?

running a 05 reg cab 4x4 with 265 75 16's. no clearance problems. I must point out though, these are blizzack dmz-2 and not some knobby mud tires which might present a clearance problem. Your best bet is to go to tireracks website or call them as they are extremely knowledgeable about what fits and what does not.
