    Hey guys, I've been saying for a while now that I need new tires and i'm finally in the market soooo....I want a taller tire but can't go any wider than a 265 because of my stock wheels (thats what I was told anyway). I don't have the extra loot to throw at wheels so does anybody have any suggestions :confused: (Currently i'm running 265/75/16's w/ a 3" lift :eek: )

    A 255 is gonna be a little shorter and narrower. I have heard a few people running that size and it working, but its close.

    I mean in your opinion do you think a 265/75/16 is a little small for the 3"s of lift? Like I said I would go 285 but discount said they don't recomend it and I don't have the extra 5 to 6 hundred for new wheels...

    5100's on all four corners set at stock with ome 885's up front. New AFE pro dry s filter. Secondary filter removed. 265/75/16 Definity M/T's. Toyota all weather rubber floor and bed mats. Armor Tech front skid plate. Armor Tech metal high lift jack brackets. Tailgate theft mode. Rear leaf TSB done.
    fyi nobody makes a 265/85/16 or 17..also a 255/85/16 is basically a 33 10 16 it really is a great size tire and will not have rubbing issues..and it is actually taller than a 285/75/16....and its also cheaper!!!!!
