9 inches wide is to big for most 265s

Edit- *some 265s IMO i would go with a skinnier wheel or wider tire

the 265-65 was recommended by tire rack for those wheels.

Just checked your right. I was thinking of one size bigger, in your case 265/70/17 and i believe 8.5" wheel is the biggest recomended size.

With a wide wheel like that your wheel will be more exposed to rocks if you offroad. But backspacing should work on those wheels.

Check the tire manufacturers website to see if their 265s are approved for 9" wheels. Most are not.

If you go wider then you will have to worry about rubbing issues. No bueno. I would say stick with that size. If you do any offroading tho i would get a skinnier wheel if you are going to run that tire size. For example the stock trd offroads use that tire size, but on a 7" wheel. The sidewall of the tire sticks out past the rim which will help keep the rocks away from your nice shinny wheels.

All depends on the size and the manufacturer. As per the BFG website, their 265/65/17s are approve for 9" wide, but their 265/70/17s are not. I'm not sure what tests or criteria they use for the specifications.

You can use tpms straps to mount them, or some folks have had success rotating them 180 degrees

Also you can run 265/70/17s on stock suspension with no rubbing

Not positive on this, but i believe the tpms on steel wheels is different than the tpms on stock tacoma alloy rims. I think it has to do with the angle? I know the tpms on the stock alloy wheels will work with most aftermarket wheels. Do a quick search because i have read somewhere that there is a solution to this, i think you have to flip them upside down and secure them with somekind of strap. Or you can buy a set of tpms from the alloy wheels, i saw a set for sale the other day.
