    Will 255/75/17 fit wo/ a lift on a trd sport? seems like they would being that they are a shade taller than a 265/70 and a bit narrower. im thinking it may warrant taking off the front mud flaps to elminate any possible rubbing. thoughts?

    thanks jhodge...i remember you had the 255/75 on your truck at one point, but with the lift...good to know stock will work too. does anyone know if 275/70/17 will fit all stock? i know that one is a stretch b/c the tire, though the same height as 255/75 is almost a full inch wider. im taking of the mud flaps anyway, so keep that in mind.

    I had them before i lifted my truck. They fit perfect with no rubbing. At full flex i was able to see that i was a hair away from rubbing. They will fill your wheel wells good.
    EDIT: I was referring to the 255/75/17

    Good info. it sucks b/c there aren't many choices in that size, but i want to fill the wells as much as possible wo/lifting just yet. i don't do much if any offroading so i wouldn't think rubbing would be an issue. what tires did you/or do you have on yours in that size?

    I still have them on. They are bfg mud terrains km's 255/75/17. They stopped making them but you might be able to still find them for a good deal. After they stopped making them i got mine for 450 shipped to my house brand new. check ebay. or google them

    nice! i do a lot of driving so the narrower tire, 255/75/17, though taller than stock, will be better on mpg than the 265/70 or 275/70 i would think.

    any other opinions on 275/70/17 on all stock suspension?
