    Hello TW! I just recently bought my 2007 Tacoma and i was wondering if you folks had any suggestions on a small, yet rugged looking tire. I have the stock 15 inch wheels on now but im picking up a set of 16x7s tomorrow because i got a really good deal! Lemme know if you folks have any suggestions for something that would make my little truck look a little more aggressive...:cool: Thanks!!!
    BTW- this is my first post on TW:D

    Just curious, are the 15" wheels 6-lug? Are the 16" wheels you found OEM Tacoma wheels?

    No, the 15" wheels are 5 luggers. The 16s are aftermarket "boss" rims with a universal lug pattern.

    personally I would stay with a 15' rim, just prefer more tire less rim. I'm planning on using BFG A/T on my stock rims when it comes time to get tires. I want a little more tire than stock but don't want to mess with the drive-ability of the 4-banger. I will probably go with 215/75/15.

    For you with the 16X7 rim the 235/70/16 would work better with your wider rim. The A/T come in different load ranges, I would use the C rating as the E would be very stiff they are meant for trucks that handle much bigger payloads.

    Thanks for the help everyone! Much Mahalos;)
    One more thing, anyone find or have any pictures of 5 Lugger tacomas like mine with A/Ts? My Tacoma doesn't have the factory fender flares BTW. I wonder what it would look like sitting in the fender without the flares?

    Nitto Terra Grapplers are a great tire, comparable to the BFGs but cheaper.

    Has anyone ever used General Grabber UHP or AT/2s? These tires look appealing, especially for the price! My Truck would fit a 235/70/16 tire correct?

    30x9.5x15 tires are the largest you can fit without lifting, however you will need to remove the black box in the front fenderwells so they don't rub.
