    so i just got some 285/75/16 put on my 2009 tacoma
    i got pepboys tire put on and had nothing but trouble with them
    first pepboys said they would fit all i need to do is buy a spacer
    which i did
    so when i go up there to get them to put it on they said that it wount fit on my stock rim which then i call 4wheelspart and the said it be ok so i got them
    i love the looks of them but the ride suck at first then i saw that they put 3 or 4 wights on each tire which is about 3 to 4 inch long i took it up there today and told them at 55mph the will shake alot and they had to add more wight

    so i guess my qustion is will i be fine with 285/75/16 on stock rims

    and if anyone running this do they have as much wight on the wheel as me

    You need to run the spacers with stock rims otherwise it will rub on your uca's, but it should work.

    When putting bigger tires on a truck you will lose a lot of your ride that you had before. As far as the shaking goes it could be most likely from it not being balanced right or maybe something to do with the spacers you had them put on. You might want to try having it aligned too.
