    I have a 2011 DB Cab. V6 Auto. I have a 3 inch lift and was thinking about putting 255/85/r16 (33x10) tires on it. I have heard from some guys that I would need to regear as the bigger tire will put stress on the driveshaft. Also how much mpg would I loose. Not really worried about mpg but also dont want it to be a hog.
    Looking for more opinions. I could go with a smaller tire, but like the idea of the taller tire.
    Thanks

    i actually found better fuel milage on the highway with my 6sp but the driveshaft did give after to many hard days on her but 31's probaly woulda still broke it just not as fast.33's are fine but in four high its hard to keep the tires spining really fast throught thich mud or snow!

    ok thanks that sounds good. Sounds like I won't lose too much in performance with the 255/85/r16. So I think I will go with that. I don't beat the truck up too much off road so alot of driving will be on the highway. I just like the look of tall tires.

    It'll ride no problem. You'll lose an MPG or two from the weight, but the 1GR can spin those babies just fine.

    I get 19mpg with my 285s which'll be heavier than your 255's. And that's with an ARB and a 10,000lb winch on.

    I am guessing there is less trimming because the 255's are skinnier. Thats why I was going with them
