    265/70R16 is the stock size for TRD Off Roads. 265/75R16 is the largest tire that can be put on without having to trim.

    So to firm this question up... You can put 265 75 r16 tires on the stock STEEL WHEELS right? and have no rubbing?

    I just signed up so I could follow this thread. Started looking at new tires and was thinking about the 265/75. Love to know anyones opinions on mpg, acceleration etc. I'm worried that my little 4-cyl. won't be able to run them.

    Also anyone running Goodyear Duratrac in that size?

    Also wondering the same thing... seems the 75 series are more popular (and therefore less expensive).

    Also, if you post fuel economy, please specify if you placed a factor in the mileage for the larger tires - they rotate ~7% less

    How do the DuraTracs ride? I'm going to check them out today, seems like the would be loud on the highway. I need something that can handle Vail snow and Moab sand but still be ok on the highway :)

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    You won't rub on the stock wheels with 265/75/16 tires. Aftermarket rims have different offset and backspacing and do run the risk of rubbing.

    True.

    No rubbing when using 265/75/16 on stock wheels.

    When I put in wheels with 4.5 backspacing, it rubbed at full lock. That was even with 1.75" lift. I lifted it some more and solve the problem.

    Note: At 1.75" lift, it rubbed in the front. Maybe I could have just solved it by increasing the caster angle.
