    What is the tallest tire size you can stuff under a 1st gen 2wd (with no lift)?
    I found this info for the prerunner and 2nd gen... :confused:

    Do you know what size tire is on it now. If so you could turn the wheels to full stop ans check the clearance. That would give you an ideal of how much larger you can go. There are conversion tables that can convert the metric size to inches.

    Yes, 1st gen, non-lifted, not prerunner 4x2. Jut like JoeTacoma02's pic--
    I found extensive info in this forum for the 2nd gen 4x2, but nuthin on the 1st gen.
    thanks guys-
    bridgcat- I got rid of my 4runner and currently have no truck, trying to decide between 1st gen prerunner or regular old 4x2.

    go prerunner.

    Much easier to lift, and you have A LOT more options with a lot higher quality.

    Coilover IFS FTW!!

    They look better too! However, I'm going for max fuel economy, the only concession i may make is slightly taller tires

    Pre runner with a 2.7 with stock-ish size tires should get in the arena of 18-20 city and 25 hwy if driven well.

    Well worth it IMO...

    235/75/15....I fit them on my stock 5 lugger before my lift. They will slightly rub when going over a speed bump though.....I would go with a 225/70/15 if you don't plan on lifting and going with the 4x2 non pre runner
