with 5100's what size tires???
hey guys im kinda new to TW and i don't know a whole lot about tires...but ive been looking for two weeks straight on which tires to buy for the taco.

I just bought the 5100'S set at 2.5" (love em) but the truck is looking kinda weak with the little tires...i want a/t on the stock rims(for now) and ive been looking at the bfg's, goodyear, mickey thompsons..etc. and i cant decide what size to get ive been thinking 265/75/16 or maybe 285/75/16...but what ive seen online with the pics 265 look a little small and for the 285's ive read you have to have the 3'' lift or they will rub like crazy! so i was wondering what you guys thought and if you have any pics with my set up and either size tires or something comparable so i can see?....thanks

I'm am planning on 275 70 16 BFG AT's when my stock 265 Rugged Trails wear out. I have a 2.5" lift. 285's will rub....or so I've been told.

265/75/16 would look nice and alot fuller with 285's you will rub depending on tire, i have 265/70/16 just wanted to keep it stock size
