265/70/17 packages???

Ive got an 05 PreRunner V6 TRD package, and I need to know if anyone has information on where to get 265/70/17 tires WITH wheels included? I dont want to have to order a seperate set of wheels and they end up not fitting? Or if I get 265/70/17, what size wheels do I get?

Thanks

Go to discounttire.com and enter your vehicle information. It will give you all the exact wheels that will fit your truck. (i.e. correct backspacing, etc. )

According to Mickey Thompson website those only come in 17x9, and a 5in backspace, those will not work well without some mods, such as UCA's, spacers and probably cutting.
But to answer your question, a 265 should not be mounted on a 9in rim, it's too narrow.

If you do mount them on there, it is likely that you will rub, and the risk of the tire bead coming off the rim is higher.
The rubbing is going to depend on your wheel offset, backspacing, ride height of your rig, camber, etc. but bone stock & fresh suspension will likely rub with a 9in rim

I don't know what kind of driving you do, but if you're off road at all, I wouldn't go any wider than 8in with 265's.

Just an FYI mounting a 265 on a 9" wide wheel is not a bad thing-so long as the tire manufacturer lists that width in there range. For example I have 265/70/17 grabber AT2's on 17x9 wheels. No problems at all. General tire says up to 9.5" on their website for my specific tire. So whatever you plan to go with do your homework and make sure all the parts are compatible.
