    I feel like I have done my research here on TW and elsewhere on the interwebz. I think I am making a good, educated purchase that fits my needs and tastes.

    However, there might be something I do not see. Will you guys let me know if my wheel/tire combo will rub or cause any other problems?

    - I have stock TRD Off-road suspension and no desire to change that.
    - Stock tires are 265/70/16

    Thanks!

    You should be good. I had gotten a similar set up for my dad's 2nd (gen just with Cooper ATP's) and he didn't have any rubbing issues.

    That would be a good fit and look great. It's also a great buy.

    Make sure you're buying from a reputable tire dealer. Just saw another thread with a link to the Falken Wildpeak site saying there's a warning for illegally repaired tires being sold as new.

    No need to concern yourself with this if you purchase through DTD :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the heads-up! I plan to purchase through either Discount Tire Direct or my local Discount Tire.
