    Thought I'd contribute this combination since I hadn't see it anywhere before. Rims are from a 2011 4Runner SR5 and are 17x7 with 4.75" BS. Tires are Cooper Discoverer AT3s in 275/70/17 Load Range "C."

    No lift on this truck...bone stock suspension save for airbags in the rear. Everything clears with no rubbing anywhere that I've found yet. My front mudflaps were torn off some time ago, so I can't say they wouldn't rub there and I did trim the little plastic nub off the air dam in front of the front tire when was running Spidertrax.

    Switched to these tires from BFG ATs. WOW what a difference! First thing I noticed upon driving away from Discount Tire was how quiet and smooth they were! They put 38psi in the tires and, honestly, the ride is more supple and compliant than the BFGs at 34psi. Really a nice ride.

    Seem to hook up very well in the snow....no excessive spinning on the slick stuff.

    No center caps yet, but I'm scrounging for a pair. Kind of like the look as is, but I think I'll pick up a cheap set somewhere and paint them black or dark gray.

    Looks nice.. I'm doing some 5100's in the front with a 1.5 lift and stock 5100's in back with 275/65/17' all the way around on the stock 2012 rims. Should have it all done next week.

    I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. No need for a lift, really, but I have a set of Toytec coilovers I'll eventually put on, unless I decide to just do a simple 1.5" spacer.

    Dude you've already got the coil overs, don't downgrade to spacers. :p



    Get that lift on!

    I just ordered the exact tire (size and all) to go on my truck with FJ oem wheels. I'm currently rubbing pretty good on the flaps and the front plastic while turning with 275/60/20 (33") and lifted 2", so I'm thinking I will be in the clear with the new tires.

    You just might. Let me know if you clear. My flaps were torn off a while ago, so I don't know if they'll clear or not.

    I think you will really like the At3s. I'm extremely pleased. Very quiet and smooth and really look great!

    If ur asking me yea no rubbing issues anywhere not even on flaps, these rims have a 4.75 backspacing giving almost an inch of extra clearance and makes the stance look better too IMO

    Yep, cleared the UCAs with room to spare.

    Haven't been off road yet, but they've been great in about 8" of snow. I expect they will perform similarly to the BFG ATs off road, but I won't get a chance to find out until later next month.

    As far as MPGs....I'm still around 17.3 or so, which is similar to what I was getting with 265/70/17s. But then there's the winter blend gas and around town driving. I'm anxious to take a road trip and see how I come out regarding MPG. All in all, I think I'll probably lose a little, but it's a trade off. I think when I did the calculations, it costs me an additional $163 per year dropping from 18.5mpg to 17.5mpg based on 15K miles/year and gas at $3.50/gal.

    Cool thanks for the response, good to hear about the snow! Makes my decision a little easier.
    Keep us updated how they preform offroad + MPG and stuff if you get the chance

    I'd say adequate, but it's not like they're heavily siped or studded. For the limited time I was on ice, they seemed fine, but driving on ice with anything short of studded or chained tires is sporty no matter what the tire. I figure I spend less than 1/10 of 1% of my driving time on ice, so I'm not overly concerned.
