Tire advice for stock TRD Sport 07

I want a little bigger tire without rubbing and I am not looking to get a lift yet. I have been considering 1st Nitto Terra Grappler, 2nd Yokohama Geolander AT-S, 3rd Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ. My current tire is 265 65R 17 I have been told 275 65 17 would be good with out rubbing and if I go to a 285 they might rub. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also I like Evans tire but not sure they carry these tire brands any info on place to get them in north San Diego. Thanks.

I'm running 265/70/17's on my '07 TRD with no lift(yet).This is 1/2 an inch higher on the sidewall for an inch taller tire overall.It looks great,fills out the wells nicely and there are no rubbing issues whatsoever.

Any difference in the ride with the 265/70/17s?

Sounds good Squad,thanks..
I may be going for that 1/2 an inch higher on the sidewall and inch taller tire overall look with the .85 little lift from Billies and the spring TSB..
Maybe with a Michelin LTX A/T2 this time.

I hate metric sizes.... but isn't that width?

265/70 r17 would be wider than 265/65 r17?

Jan,my understanding is that the 70 represents the % of the width......So the tread width is the same,but the increase comes from going from 65% to 70% of that width in sidewall height......The 265/70/17 equals a 31.5.

Joe,that lift will look great.I'm awaiting delivery of my Billies set at 2.5 and 1.5 blocks for the rear.My Canadian truck has a stock 4 leaf pack so I'll be about 2.5 all around.

Edited to add:Found this:


Several numbers and letters on the tire sidewall indicate the tire size. For example, on a P215/65R17 tire designation, the P indicates Passenger Vehicle use. The letters LT would indicate Light Truck, which typically has a higher load carrying capability. The next group of numbers, 215, are the width of the tire in millimetres, while the 65 is the aspect ratio of the tire. This means the tire sidewall height is 65% of the width of the tread

You are correct. Someone asked earlier about any difference noted from stock. I find the steering slightly less positive. Truck reacts a little more to road surface and wind, I believe, because the taller sidewalls flex a little more than stock.

A Tire Rack rep told me the tires would flex more on turns so you would lose a bit of handling going up to a 70 series.
He said he didn't recommend the 70 series and stay with the 65.
I'd love to read more actual driver imput on this.
