    Yes, I've read the forum, yes I know that 265/75/r16 is generally accepted to be the size tire that will fit w/o rubbing on factory suspension.

    A lot of these posts showing these tires w/o rubbing are showing mild AT tires w/o much tread depth or side biters and occasionally someone chimes in saying that they experience rubbing w/ factory suspension and 265/75/r16's....

    Will mildly aggressive All Terrains fit w/o rubbing? Anybody got a set of Mickey Thompson ATZ's on a 2012 DCB Offroad w/ factory suspension that can comment on rubbing? Mud flaps are removed...

    Thanks,

    David

    Nice tires...would they rub if you still had the front mud flaps? I am considering those for my next set of tires. Two questions - how much taller/wider are they than the stock rugged fails, and how is the noise level?

    sorry for the hijack...I am also wondering what the op is asking, though...

    Whippersnapper,

    Thanks for the response, that's what I needed to know!

    Follow-up question, have you checked your speedometer w/ a gps w/ the new tires? My '07 Tacoma Sport (now my son's...) is spot on w/ a new set of Mickey ATZ's 265/70r17's, was several miles an hour fast w/ the factory 65 series.

    I haven't checked the speedometer on my new '12, but I'm guessing it's the same...
