    Everyone tells me it doesn't look right... just wanted to see how 'wrong' it really was!

    Searched up and down for pics, but most of what I found were 265/75/16 Mud Terrains, a few of which might as well be 285's if you look from far away

    Thanks in advance!

    Didn't know stock wheels could look this good haha-- Appreciate you posting!

    Rugged trail black fenders have a pretty cool subtlety to them that you just don't get on a white tacoma

    I really have to wonder if that means everyone just jumps immediately to 285s...

    I've got some cash saved up right now-- just enough for wheels and swapping over my old tires, but I can't decide if it'd be better to save up and get the new tires and cab mount chop at the same time

    Tires and the chop are going to run me a grand...

    The tread on Mud Terrains always make them look massive-- I'd swear those were 285/75, especially judging by the look of the front driverside on that last picture...


    I've got BFG AT KOs right now... think they'd even come close to looking that hefty?

    Yep-- those are the tires i'm looking for

    Got any shots from the front or a 3/4 view? I'm not too worried about the side profile, but I'm scared they'll look too thin from the front, or that the stance won't look right diagonally

    I think the 265 will look good. I dont think my tires look too small. I would like to have 33s but that will have to wait till these wear down.
    I would say run the 265 with the lift and if it's not what you envisioned sell the BFG to help offset the cost of 285s.

    Here is a pic I found before the lift and MT. The tires in the pic below are still 265.

    I think mine look great & I have 4" of lift in the back. I have 255/85/16's Cooper S/T's, they are pizza cutters. They have a deep tread. Also look at Cooper sst Maxx 265/75/16's

    Crap, they have a deeper tread than the TA KO's. & are taller. Sorry my comp. keeps F-ing up. I had Cooper's on my 99 Taco they lasted 100K ya as long as the OME Goodyear's, and was crushed with about 15K on my BFG T/A KO's.

    Nothing wrong with that size at all. People who say otherwise mostly likely have a small penis and need bigger tires to compensate.

    Well... at the risk of sounding like I have a small penis, I guess I'm obligated to stick with my 265s! :rofl:
