    This there anyone out there with a gen-2 base with steelies running a 225/70/15 tire instead of the stock 215/70 size? I like the idea of the added width and the slightly taller sidewall would probably help the speedo accuracy as well...as it's "fast" like so many Toyotas. :rolleyes:

    Just wondering if I could see some pix. Thanks

    I'm not running stock tires or the size you've mentioned. I'm running 30x9.5 tires. There are some other folks on here too that are running tire sizes other than the stock size, I'm just not sure of a particular thread to point you to. You might check out here for 5 lug wheels and tires.

    Sorry I didn't see your post earlier.

    I am not running stock at all. Here is what I am running and what they look like

    Rear - Ultra Motorsports 15 x 12 - P295/50/R15 Front - Utra Motorsports 15 x 9 1/2 - P245/60/R15

    This shows how far they stick out

    I am currently trying to sale these rims and tires. They are just not my style (bought the truck with them on it) and I am going to Germany with the truck and they are not legal there. I have some X-Runner rims (9.5x18 with an offset that sucks them up closer to the body) that will be going on as soon as the money god gives me the $800 I am going to need to put tires on them..

    I have heard that a 235/75/15 fills up the space nicely on stock rims.
    I'll be doing this in a couple weeks and will post a pic or 2 when done.
