275/70/16 -or- 265/70/16

06 Tacoma V6 TRD package.

With a 3 inch lift, and stock tires painted black, should i go with 275/70/16 or 265/70/16 ? I do not like a truck with an uneven look. The tires should look good with the lift. Please, I need suggestions.

Why not 265/75/16? 265/70/16 should be stock size for an OR.

265/70 or 265/75 and 285 would be a lot easier to find than a 275 size tire.... I kinda had the same reaction as OZ-T did

Not width, aspect ratio. (height)

To help you understand tire sizes a little better here's a quick lesson.
For an example we'll use a fairly common tire size for trucks with a 3" lift, a 285/70/R17.

We'll first label the parts as follows:
285/70/R17
_^__^__^
_A__B___C

A- This is the width of the tire in millimeters. The conversion is 1"= 25.4mm so for our example: 285/25.4= 11.22" width.

B- This part is the "aspect ratio" of the tire and is a relation of the tire's width to the sidewall height of the tire. In our example it's '70'. This means the sidewall height is 70% (.70 in calculation) of the width of the tire. That means the sidewall height is:

11.22 x .70= 7.85"
BUT there is a 'sidewall' both above and below your wheel when measuring height, so you must multiply this by 2 when calculating the tire's overall height.

C- This third piece is simply your rim size. So, for a final calculation of a tire's size, you add this to the total from part B.

Its the height of the sidewall if you're talking the middle number.

EDIT: oz beat me with a much more thorough explanation haha.
