Tire size on a base model

I am thinking of buying a base crew cab 4x4 Tacoma. If I do I would like to upgrade to the same tires I have on my Frontier. (LT265/75R16) Does anyonme else run these tires?

I noticed that the tires on the so called off-road package are actually smaller outside diameter than on the base model. Where I am from the difference bewteen base and TRD is almost $6000. Doesn't seem worth it to me. Can the computer be changed to reflect the correct speed /odo readings?

Thanks for your info,
Kris

Thanks but the TRD crew cab in Ontario does not come with a locker (sucks). I have a rear locker and a front limited slip in my frontier right now. Not happy to part with it. The TRD does come with an extra 1500 lbs towing and a backup camera. Now thats worth 6K!!

245/75R16 is the stock size for everything without the TRD packages. The TRD package stock tire size is 265/70R16. I changed my stock 245 tires to 265/70R16 and didn't notice any real change in the speedometer. It read slower than it should with the stock tires and still does with the 265/70R16's. 265/75R16s will be a little taller than 265/70R16's.
