    I am new and have been looking for a thread with the answer but couldn't find one so here it is i have a 07 2wd Tacoma with the stock 215/70/15 on it now and i want to put 235/75/15 on it but the tire guys are telling me it will rub terribly and i should not do it and i was wondering if anyone had put them on there 2wd without issues or having to modify or cut anything if it can't be done does anyone know of a alternative to the stock tire's that look like baby tires

    They fit with no issues on my 2003 5 lug.

    There are a few 2nd gens (2005-current) 5 lug trucks on here that run 235's with no lift at all.

    In my opinion you should go with a taller tire but not wider. Use the link to the tire size calculator at the bottom of the page to help you find something you like. (maybe a 225/75/15) The main thing to keep in mind is to stay under 29" in height if you can.

    The guys at the tire shop don't know what they're talking about. That's why they're still working at a tire shop.

    235/75/15 will fit. Many members on here run them.

    At highway speeds (55-65) it will read about 3-5mph slow. The faster you go the bigger that gap is.

    I wouldn't worry about it.

    No lift, no black box mod, no rubbing.

    Like those tires. How does the truck handle compared to stock tires?

    Pretty much the same, nicer ride though. Honestly, I just couldnt stand how tiny the tires looking with the 215

    here it is from behind
