    Never ordered tires online and I'm leary about it. Got a 13 Sport.

    http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires...3&autoModel=Tacoma Double Cab&autoModClar=4wd

    If the link busts these are Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac's at 265/65R17 which to the best of my reading the side of my current tires should fit.

    ________

    And I want to add a flowmaster super40 muffler to the truck but all the midas and dealers want me to get a full cat back system, and I genuinely believe I don't need that. Another muffler place said they couldn't do it because the exhaust bends up under the bed after the muffler, if anyone has a solution or a comeback I can offer. I've held off buying these tires and muffler for like 3 months with uncertainty.

    What's your question?

    Yes they will fit. They're stock size tires.

    If you don't mind shopping a little I would contact discounttiredirect.com and see if they can get the same tire for the same price. The good thing about discounttiredirect.com is you can order the tires from them and then take them to a Discount Tire store to get them mounted and balanced for $16 a tire.

    Anyone got an answer for the second question about the Flowmaster? I want to add a flowmaster super40 muffler to the truck but all the midas and dealers want me to get a full cat back system, and I genuinely believe I don't need that. Another muffler place said they couldn't do it because the exhaust bends up under the bed after the muffler, if anyone has a solution or a comeback I can offer.

    The dealers and Midas want to get as much money as they can from you. Keep going to different independent muffler shops until you find one that will do what YOU want instead of what THEY want. I put on Thorley headers and a new dual system with a 40 Series Flowmaster and NO cats; an independent shop did it.

    I've bought multiple sets of tires from the TireRack. Always great service and price. I just bought a set last week for my wife's car, and had them shipped to a mobile installer. He'll bring his truck to my house tomorrow and put them on the car. Much better than going to a tire shop IMHO. The TireRack has warehouses everywhere now, so it only took a day to get the tires to the installer.

    I also had a flowmaster 40 on my truck with the original cats. At the same time the shop flattened the exhaust. The tailpipe went just over the rear axel and was cut off there. Everything fit just fine. The muffler sounded great around town, but I didn't like the drone on the highway, so I went back to stock. (My truck is geared w 4.56's so I might have gotten more drone than a stock geared truck.) Personally, I would leave the cats in place. If they aren't there, you might not pass emissions, and that would be headache. Depends on where you live.

    Stand by... waiting on more daylight so I can take a pic for you of my muffler-only setup. Turns out it is possible!
