    HEY Y'ALL!

    Spring has arrived at SW Ohio so the snow tires are off and my choice of summer tires are installed.

    These are 235x60-16 Bridgestone Turanza Serenity mounted on Rial (Germany) "Como" 16x6.5 wheels. The combination is available from Tire Rack. Loaded radius is essentially identical to the OEM 215x70-15 Destination LEs. This is good in a 2.7 as the odometer, speedometer, acceleration, ABS sensitivity/activation and fuel economy are not affected in bad ways. This is a maximum fitment as anything wider will contact the frame or fender liner at full steering lock.

    The three-tire illustration shows a mounted 235 next to a mounted 225x70-15 snow and a dismounted 215.

    Install was performed on a wet day so the portraits were done when the weather became warm/dry and I could give the Taco a bath.

    The Bridgestones transform the truck in a good way. :yay: I'd recommend them to any late-model, 2WD/4-CYL operator.

    Nice wheel and tire combo. I plan on something similar when my LE's are done for. I like the way these fill out the wheel wells. Very sharp.

    Thank you. Right! A 235 on this width/offset wheel takes the tread right out to the fender edge. Anything more wide would have interference issues on the inside and throw water, dirt, trash, etc onto the sides of the body. :(

    A 235x60-16 is a maximum fit THAT RETAINS FACTORY-ENGINEERED PERFORMANCE PARAMETERS. :frusty: If an owner chooses taller/wider options, that's OK, providing final drive ratios are altered and/or lift kits and flares eliminate clearance issues.

    Taller fitments WILL affect ABS sensitivity, general handling due to alteration of the center of gravity and fuel consumption, not always in a good way. :bananadead:

    For owners of rock-stock 2WDs a 235x60-16 is the "maximum", OEM replacement.
