    Ok, I've done some research and this is the tire I want to run.
    But I read on another post a guy ran 265/70/16 in the same tire and it rubbed, but he did have after market wheels. I think my truck sit a littler lower than other for some weird reason. But never measured it for sure. It could just be me wishing mine was raised a little in the front?????
    My front mudflaps are off. Not really by choice but I tore one off on a tree stump and just took the other off to "match".

    My stock tires (Rugged Trails) are 8.25 wide and 30.6" tall.
    Tirerack says the AT2 is 8.75" wide and 30.9" tall
    General tire doesn't say the tread width but they say the tire is 30.6" wide. Not Sure why there is a differnce in Trierack and General?
    Will this cause any issues?

    Also the AT2 is just over 4 lbs. heavier.
    Will this cause a loss in much fuel mileage?

    Are you sure? I've seen a lot of people say 75's might rub and 70's is the way to go. I'm looking to get new tires myself and can't figure out what to do. I would love to go the bigger route without having to get spacers or a lift.

    Well for what it is worth, I just bought these tires last fall and are pretty nice. I have them on stock off road rims and I do get a little rub. Usually only when I am turning in reverse. My front suspension is pretty worn out and might be the reason why. I also have no front mudflaps. I did lose a little bit of gas mileage when switching, as these tires are heavier.

    I've had the 265/75/16s on stock off road rims for 4 years and don't rub anywhere with stock height.

    The consensus around here is you can fit 265 75 16 without rubbing.

    You should not be concerned about fuel loss with the 265 70 16 AT2's by adding 4 lbs per tire, you wont notice.

    If you went with the 265 75 16 you might, as its a different load range and the weight could impact fuel mileage. At the same time, it would throw your speedometer and odometer off a little per the height difference.

    Awesome thanks guys. So, it looks like I can do 265 75 16 with little chance of rubbing if any, and it will change fuel mileage a tad bit. If I go 265 70 16, it definitely won't rub and fuel mileage difference will be little to none. Is the small difference with 70's vs 75's that noticeable? If not, I might just go 70's to be safe.

    I do want as big as I can though without having to get a lift. Are spacers what makes the tires pop out from the sides? I love that look..if so, any suggestions on a spacer I can get for these bad boys as well.

    TW has a tire size calculator you should check out.

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/tirecalc?tires=265-70r16-265-75r16

    The 265 70's you are looking at are Standard load range and 4 ply at 44 lbs. They will give more of a cushy ride and be easier on fuel mileage but also punture easier.

    The 265 75's in the same tire are load range E and 10 ply at 57 lbs. They will give more of a firm ride, and the increased weight will drop mpg's a little, but not much. They will offer better puncture resistance. They will be 1" taller.

    It all depends on what you use it for. If you run a lot of miles on gravel, you'll want the 10 ply.

    Spacers will make your tires stick out farther. I believe they will wear out your hubs a little faster, due to increased strain. Make sure you get hub centric spacers if you do. Spidertrax makes some.
