    holy s*** dude! read my thread i just posted above urs. I'm wondering the exact same thing. My 01 taco needs some new shoes and I was wondering what I could get away with as far as tire size without adding a lift

    Hey there guys! I had 265/75/R16's on my truck before the lift, and had no problems.

    With no lift you'd rub on 255/75's.

    I have a plasma cutter! I would rather not lift it since its my daily driver. Cant have it rubbing though. I will probably put tundra coils in the front and ome leafs in the rear.

    I have an 02 dbl cab with 265/70/17 (measure 32 1/2") that rubbed a little on the plastic covering the the pinch weld seam. I simple cut the plastic out with a utility knife and bent the pinchweld over to gain some extra clearence. The look on the tire shops guys was priceless:laugh: check out my pics.

    265/70/17 is actually a 31.6" tire. You shouldnt notice a difference in mpg or in power as the increase is lesss than 5% over stock. :)

    He's going from a 31" tire to a 32" tire. Its bigger, just not enough to affect the gearing or to adversly affect the milage. :) FWIW as tires are meassured, a 31.3 is considered a 32" tire, and so forth. They round up the size.

    My 265/70/17 bfg ats measured 32 1/2" when brand new. The stock 265/75/16 they replaced measured 31". There wasn't any loss in power, still smokes the tires. MPG wasn't really affected, 22 mpg to 21 1/2 mpg. Ride comfort was alittle affected due to running higher air pressure to handle more weight. I currently run around 45 psi compared to 35 on the stockers. The tread wear on bfg at is incredible. Ones on my 02 4runner lasted close to 60,000 miles and still passed inspection.

    Ok guys- mounted the tires today! (08 TAcoma SR5 17's with BFG Mud-Terrains 255/75 r17) No rub except at full turn. I did trim the front valence a little, altough it still looks factory. They look great. Will post pics ASAP.
