    Will 255/75/R17 BFGs fit on my 2009 Tacoma TRD sport without rubbing. I have no lift on the truck either.

    i believe that those tires have a very low weight rating. so if you frequently haul stuff id be careful. you know how it goes if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. dont want anyone puttin too much load on their tires and having them go pop

    wat?
    when i ordered mine it popped up a warning saying that the load rating is higher than the stock tires and will cause it to ride a little rougher than normal...

    also, the 32" tire on the spare will fit under there right?? no cutting until 33"?

    I'd probably stay away from that tire based on all the Jeep Rubicon (it's the OE Rubicon tire) guys that complain about balancing/vibration issues. Thats just me though.

    It's def hit or miss but I have a lot guys come into the shop looking for an alternative to the OEM tires. They are quite frequently out of round when I perform the the runout tests here. But like I said it's probably just me. I see a couple Jeeps with bad tires an I think they're all bad lol.

    Its a Jeep. The problem is with the vehicle itself not the tire...

    No, it's def the the tire. We swap em out and the problems are resolved. I don't want to get into a pissing match about out of round BFG's. Not all of them are but they have more OOR's than other tire mfgrs from what I have noticed through my own personal experiences as someone in the in the wheel and tire industry.

    I had a set of these on an Avalanche and they were awesome. Got no less than 50k out of them and they were smooth as glass.

    Edit to add I bought them when they were still 99 bucks each. Couldn't turn that down!
