    Will I be able to fit a 275/65 r 18 NItto TG on my TRD off road taco w/o rubbing? tire equals 32" diameter x 10.8 wide. I'd still like to stay under 33.

    I was also toying w/ the idea of 17" wheel but the tire size doesn't quite come to 32" On my old nissan I had 265/70 R17 that equaled 31.6" diameter. Thing is, the 275 tire on an 18" rim is still pretty cheap compared to a similar sized tire on a 17" wheels. The side wall difference from the 17 to 18 wheel is 0.43" difference

    Thanks for the help gents. I got my eye on a set of pro comp polished aluminum wheels... I was gonna go black but seems like there are tons of white taco's w/ black wheels!

    I have the 285/65/18's and had to do a bit of trimming to keep the wheels from rubbing at full lock and now im fine, i have yet to take it offroading but it looks as though it should be fine.

    285/65/18's are a bitch and you cant run them without the pinch weld mod. I have trimmed everything and am still rubbing. btw I have a 3" coilover lift.
