    Hi all,
    I am going to get my new tires tomorrow. I have decided to get some BFG A/T's. I have had them before and like them.

    I currently have 265/65/17's on my 2010 TRD Sport 4x4 long bed.

    I am not looking to lift or modify the truck, just upgrade the tires.

    How big can I go with out modifications and with out having any problems with tire clearance and such?

    I believe I was told 265/75/17's will fit.

    Thanks for the help.
    Eric

    I was a diehard BFG AT guy. But i haven't had a truck for a few years. But not wanting the stock tires for the upcoming winter, went looking for tires. Was suprised how much they have gone up in price. So as usual looked around at tires and price. Really liked the goodyear wrangler Duratrac's as soon as i saw them. a little more agressive pattern, the side walls look awsome, a snow rating of 10, and i got them for about $40.00 cheaper a tire. The salesman said there a newer tire, designed as a work truck tire, hense the all around design - street, mud, snow.
    So far i love them, ride nice, good in the rain and mud, waiting for some good snow to try them out.

    So it has been while to say the least.
    My BFG,S served me well. I had 90,000 on the first set, and currently have over 90,000 on my current set that I will be replacing in the near future!
    The 265/70/17 fit fine with no mods.
