yeah I'm not lifting or anything, but I do want a bigger tire to do some off-road and looks

I just dont want to spend all these money and next thing u know, I would get headaches from rubbing all the good stuff!

you know you guys think is worth it?

or just got up on the aspect ratio?

I guess I'll just get the 265 75 16 then

The 285's is more for aesthetics and looks rather than serious offroading.

If you choose to run 285's, with a 3" lift, and you want to do some serious offroading? Then you may need to cut away a portion of you front body mount, to allow the tire free movement while doing full turns.

But don't be mistaken with this set up you can still do some great offroading! You just may encounter some rubbing of your tires.

From here: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/sus...uide-read.html

If you go to a 285 tire, you will have rubbing and you will need to trim the inner fender liner and the body mounts. You will loose mpg and performance.

I swear I have read this exact reply word for word in a different thread.

You copied and pasted that response didn't ya? Nothing wrong with that but I swear i read it before.

And Im gonna find it. lol
