    Hey,AFAIK,that is the largest you can go without a lift.I moved up to this size soon after purchase and there is no rub issues whatsoever.....Check the pics in my gallery,all of them are with 265/70's,some at stock height,some after a 2.5" lift.In my opinion,they look great,fill the wells nicely and with the taller sidewall,offer a smoother ride(albeit not by much).....No cons as far as I'm concerned.

    to make them work with out rubbing personal experience is you will have to go with a 265/65/17 or lift the truck.

    What wheels did you have? Your info says you have the off road TRD, but those only came wigh 16" wheels. So you must have bought a wheel with the wrong backspacing.

    I'm also running 265/70R17's with no rub. I'm using the stock FJ Cruiser 17x7.5 rims.

    Guess it can vary depending on what wheel and type of tire you're using though. The MT's have a much more aggressive tread pattern, so the actual diameter of the tire may vary even if they are labeled as 265/70R17.
